We're not discussing just the $2,000 luxury line or the $900 xenon headlamp delete. The conversation has taken a turn towards why people buy BMW 3 Series and how its a nice thing that BMW lets knowingly-naive customers deconstruct their $50,000 luxury cars down to $37,000 rides that cost more than an Accord and do significantly less.

Not judging, but it gets tiresome to hear these 25 year olds exclaim how they are driving 'high performance' stripped F30's when the truth is far from that. Now more than ever, the 3 Series loses all its comfort, luxury, and performance when you can't afford to crack the $40,000 mark. We all know this, there's no reason to deny the fact.
