Fun update, thanks. The Versa is definitely built to a price - had one as a rental a few years ago (booked cheapest category). I got what I paid for. The hatch is the best looker, too - the new sedan just doesn't look right.

The new sedan is awkward from any angle.

Is that a 3-door or 5-door?
A 3-door would be right around $16k auction. A 5-door is more like $19k.

Received an email from an NJ dealer offering $25k off a seemingly leftover 2011 550i. Has about 500 miles on it. Sticker was near $80k.

Who wants a loaded 5 series? Go nab it quick!
$55k and it's gotta be loaded up to the gills.

Bad thing to get stuck with. I don't see much point for the 550. Same for E550.
Local used lot has a 2010 550i GT, seems to have every single option but HUD (the one thing I would want), I think they want 40K for it - been sitting there for 2 months now. Probably cost around 80K as well, new.

Dunno, $50k 5 series now have 4 bangers. A brand new 6 cylinder model would also cost more than that 500 mile demonstrator.
I drove a 535i sedan and then a 550GT and having sampled the V8 I'd say get that one. Why else would you get a BMW? The V8 is so much more responsive.
For $55k I'd pick that very lightly used V8 over any other 5 series. Well, except a wagon.

Oh boy, the RLX will be another black sheep in the mid size luxury segment. Who puts FWD into their top of the line luxury sedan? Even Hyundai figured it out that you need RWD to be a serious contender in this segment.

It's not even that.
For low $40s, nobody would blink.
But SIXTY ONE GRAND!?
They've completely lost their minds. And that's not even the AWD model.
