Have you factored maintenance costs into that? I've had enough carburetted vehicles to remember the hassle of trying to tune the carbs (along with ignition points, spark plugs, &c) every 10K miles or so, trying ot rebuild them, then buying a replacement when the original just won't work right...

I've never had to do any sort of work on an EFI system, other than to replace one bad sensor, and I didn't have to spend hours chasing down the problem. The OBDII told me that that's what it was, I unscrewed the old one, installed the new, and I was done. No points, plug replacement interval 105K miles...
