20084dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6

Better than the Lexus I was looking at for a much better handling and more luggage space vehicle.

20104dr Wagon turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6

Too expensive for what you get.
20064dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
for 60k the 5 series seems a bit pricy compared to what you can get from even an acura TL for instance.
20064dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I paid cash, but they do not usually offer incentives on the 5 series. That may have changed in this economy but the 5 series has few incentives.
20064dr Wagon 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Very expensive car 90K CDN or 60K USD new. Very pricey for a car.
20024dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed manual RWD
Compared to the implicit value of Genesis, BMW simply charges too much for what you get...$25K delta just not justifiable.

More than most peoples house note, but, you get what you pay for and it is a Mercedes.

Much higher price than competators.
20074dr Sedan 507-horsepower 6.2L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
It is a $100,000 car. It is expensive, and it is expensive to maintain. This is easily a $150,000 investment over 3 years.
20054dr Sedan turbocharged 201hp 3.2L I6 Diesel
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Mercedes is one of the highest priced cars around. I think you pay some for the name, but some for safety and reliability
