That's if you look at it from a pure financial perspective. If you make the most of it and enjoy it, then it's hard to say it wasn't worth it.
I also intend to keep mine for a good few years. But I've got a feeling I'll be changing sooner than I think. Car engines and technology seem to be advancing so quickly at the moment.
I think BMW build technology platforms, a bit like Apple. If you can stretch to Pro Nav and get the new system then hopefully it will still be current and
updateable in years to come. I agree with your sentiments, cars like houses should be enjoyed and lived in. The feeling of driving a new car and enjoying the latest technology justifies it for me.
