I bet every car in this segment from 1955 to 2011 is only available to middle/high class society. Too bad really cuz they work wonders....
I think that depends on a person's priorities. If someone doesn't mind that their car isn't new, you can get a great Certified Pre-Owned BMW for less than many cars are new. You can get a nice 2-3 year old lease return with the warranty and service agreement for the low to mid $20's, and that is Altima or Camry money. I think BMW (and other cars of it's class) have an unfair stigma about price and attainability. I recently moved from CA to TX and everyone here seems to be in a full size truck or SUV. You can't walk outside without seeing an F-150 or Tahoe, but everyone comments that I drive a BMW. If you've priced trucks and SUV's lately, they aren't exactly cheap. No one bats an eye at dropping $40k on an SUV, but suddenly your "exclusive" if you by a BMW? Another example of perception driving reality...
