Paid $20,000 for my 3 in '04. Just bought a new pickup for a combined gift for my partner and I for $61,000. Won't be spending that kind of dough for a looooooong time again.

$57k for an 08 X5... I had been driving my other car for 14 years so it was a lot of savings. When I had the bank check made out I was excited but crying on the inside. Still love driving it everyday, definitely worth it.

It was $171 and had to be ordered, where as a caliper for a Honda Accord is $50.
Thanks nidex for your response. I dunno if I can do ordered parts. I have been there before with a junky car and it's not so fun.

but my insurance on the audi is actually less than my saturn due to the added safety features, it has more airbags than my two saturns combined.

(but if you check out this forum for some of my posts, you'll find that my audi has been in the shop quite a bit since i bought it a year ago, but for good reason, i drive it hard and put it away wet.)
Didn't know insurance could be less on an Audi. Thanks!

In 2004 I bought my 2003 Chevy Malibu for about $10,000. I knew it had bad depreciation so I choose not to buy it new. Only new car I could get for that amount back then was a stripped down Aveo (shudder). Instead I got a one year old car with a V6 engine, power windows and door locks, AM/FM CD player, big trunk, comfortable ride, AC, rear window defrost, and enough acceleration for passing or merging onto the interstate. Today, a new Toyota Corolla is nearly as big as my Malibu. Oh well,...it's paid for with title in hand.
