Correction, the A6 weighs 3600lbs not 4000lbs. Depends on your priorities but I would not be embarrassed to drive a car that costs 50k. When a 3 series starts nudging 55k for me its common sense to step back and examine the options. Unfortunately I only find the 3 series attractive with the MSport face. In this economy one has to get good value for money. I cant remember "Joy" ever being accepted as a car payment.
I tend to agree. I have a psychological barrier to car price at about $55,000. It's hard for me to imagine spending more, even if my income supports it.

I've bought CPO in the past to afford the car I wanted, and that has been a good experience overall. This time around, though, I'm jonesing for an F32 335 xDrive coupe, so I'm three or four years out from having CPO access to one of those (at the age I target). Not sure my E60 will hold up another four years.

I don't know what I am going to do.
