What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the BMW 5-Series

Price of the BMW 5-Series: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20084dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Better than the Lexus I was looking at for a much better handling and more luggage space vehicle.
Price of the BMW 5-Series: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20104dr Wagon turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Too expensive for what you get.
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.
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.
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.

Price of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20104dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Able to get 2500 under invoice which I can never get for for BMW.
20044dr Sedan 221-horsepower 3.2L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Find one used with low miles = SCORE......found one with 42000 miles, bought it, love it.

sticker $56k plus options
20084dr Sedan 382-horsepower 5.5L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
More than most peoples house note, but, you get what you pay for and it is a Mercedes.
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.
20074dr Sedan 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Much higher price than competators.
20054dr Sedan 302-horsepower 5.0L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
In light of the prices for all cars today, you get what you pay for and the Mercedes offers only the best. They are competitive. Only problem is high cost of repairs/maintenance. Labor costs.
