It's relative. Most that own BMWs till they die pick them up used for ~$20K. There is always a a plentiful supply of 3->5 year old 3 and 5 series cars in the 17->25K range. Once a $4K repair bill arrives most dump their 10+ year old car and buy another used for $20K.

Luckily there are lots of filthy rich people who provide us with an oversupply of used BMWs. Mine was 57% of MSRP after 10.3K miles IIRC
