Researching BMWs and want some input.

Looking for a commuter car that is comfortable. I have a DC commute, at times fast, others very slow. Starting to look at some used cars to avoid the pp taxes virginia maintains, so looking for a car under 20k to avoid.

Would like to know is there a model that is better than another on resale, is automatic better than standard? Are there models to avoid or have indicated maintence issues that should be considered or mitigated prior to purchase. Any other info is appreciated. Right now looking at the 5 series for input. Looking to turn this car into a kid car down the road in a couple of years.
