I am frankly highly doubtful that for many people $50,000 is a "trivial" purchase as you imply, and most of those people probably aren't prospective 3-series customers. If you are that person then perhaps this is all comical to you.

I'm comfortable with the decisions I made, so I'll leave it at that.
To a person like my or you VOIP its not 50,000, its 7,500 per year. That is why I said if you have you house paid off, you have your investments you are saving 20% or more of your income/dividends/earnings to you really care if you spend 7,500 on a car, year after year? I don't. I get to drive a nice car, latest technology and safety features, don't have to worry about maintenance, breakdown etc.
