While the OP's post is indeed interesting, it is completely irrelevant for the very simple reason that this effect applies to all auto brands, and so looking at it for BMW in isolation is meaningless. We have been getting a lot more car for our money in inflation adjusted dollars, and more with some brands than with others, and I wouldn't be surprised if BMW fell in the "others" category.

Just as an example, my 1985 Toyota Crapolla cost $9000 out the door in 1985. That's a little over $19K in 2012 dollars, which could afford me a much bigger Accord, with an extra 100+ Hp, ABS, stability control, traction control, airbags, automatic windows and locks, CD player, and god knows what else.

The only thing that really matters is present price relative to the competition.
