i agree, i picked up my 01 S4 for $14500 with all service records and 70k  
miles :D book is 18-22k :) no its not a brand new car, but its been great so far 
 and affordable

My  answer is to choose cars carefully and buy "deals".  I owned my S4 avant  
for about 1.5 years.  I played with it, had fun and sold it for a net  
ownership cost of less than $300 a month.  That's cheaper than leasing  and I could 
mod the car and drive it as much as I wanted with no  worries.  I'm about to 
pick up an UrS4 that I could part out for more  than I'm paying for it.  

The key is to try to minimalize being  upside down in the car, which is 
difficult since they're a depreciating  asset.  When you lease, you're immediately 
upside  down...
