    Volvo in it's own special category as it's the car you have when you need the safest car in the world because you can't drive

    Mid range European to Luxury European depending on the model.

    Nope, the Legacy GT is a low/midrange Grand Tourer aimed to compete against the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.

    Mid range cars are middle range in price and usually family saloons etc

    Well, you have Holdens, the odd Mitsubishi Magna (saw one on our roads once) and the Honda Legend (Aust-made till 2007)

    In Singapore, that is a luxury because of the extraordinary high cost of owning these 'ordinary' cars from Europe. The economy of Government-generated luxury...

    I dun think owning a Benz/BMW is a luxury in SIngapore anymore. Take a look outside your window now, chances are you will find a BMW or Merc passing by....

    BMW 3 & 5 are more luxury European than mid range. Saab, Volvo, Alfa are more mid range European. Maybe should add 1 more category "Super Cars"....GTR, Lambo, Ferrari, Konigsegg.

    BMW 3 and 5 are mid range cars, end of story. A 3 series is nothing to write home about nor is a 5 series. A 3 series in most countries is a junior exec vehicle at best. A 7 series is a luxury class car.

    Supercars are covered under sports cars European.

    Yes. And (sigh...) the disproportionate amount of angst these people go through simply to service their car loan.
    A common phenomenon of modern society - an unwillingness to live within one's means, and an eagerness to stretch one's limits to the extreme.

    my 2 cents - the question is can you afford to maintain a 3 series? it is not about owning one. i am sure many can fork out $130,000 to buy a new one. but can you afford to maintain one? insurance premium is $3,000 a year. petrol consumption is 9km per litre for a 318i. annual road tax is $1,600. servicing at PML is $400-$500 every quarter. and if you bang your car bonnet and radiator, it will take a month and cost you $35,000 to fix it.

    OK, difference in opinion. Maybe in AU BMW 3 & 5 are mid range. However, in Singapore they cost from S$130K-330k (318i to M3) & $170k-450k (520 & M5)...definitely premium. An average BMW 520 costs double that of a Toyota Camry.

    If Audi is luxury european, how can BMW be mid range when a BMW here costs more than Audi, new or preowned? Maybe different market, different positioning.

    Does this also mean the E-Class is mid-range since BMW 5 is mid-range?
