Don't forget - 530i: $40K+ New, 6-7 years ago...Lumina: ~$20K today!
However, this is why I bought a '94 530i with 90K versus a new car around $15K.
Incidently, I owned a 1986 Chevy Eurosport MFI V6 (got a really, really good deal from Dad), and again a 1990 Chevy Eurosport. I liked the '86 better - better quality seats, quieter engine.
Has anyone else noticed that the median quality of cars seems to have deteriorated over the last 10 years? I'm renting a 2000 Chevy Lumina while my 530i is at the body shop. The Lumina is really, really poorly made. The car has 9,000 miles on it and already feels like it's falling apart. It even seems that the early 90's 3-series cars were a little nicer than the current lot.
