Just a thought on the Consumer Reports article...don't fret it! I have been driving for over 35 years and have never purchased a car based on "resale value". If I had been worried about resale then I wouldn't have bought a "new" car (remember the biggest depreciation is driving it off the lot!). Bottom line is I researched my vehicles, test drove, found one I liked, worked a deal and then enjoyed driving my new car. If you are on this site then you enjoy owning a BMW (like millions of other owners). So have fun with your car and when it comes time to trade or sell it remember that you bought a BMW because it is the "Ultimate Driving Machine" not the max resale machine! Cars are not an investment they are a tool or a toy, depending on the owner.
