Just a simple question:
Why is $46,000 car worth only $14,000 when it runs out of the 4 year 50,000 miles Warranty ?
That is the $32,000 question !!!
May be there is reason for it = it is BMW....
The Ultimate sucker machine, and the fact that it sucks oil too; is just part of the "Unique owner Experience".
Infact BMW depreciation rate is just about the same as that of a HYUNDAI, i.e. in used car business it is valued the same, that alone should be a clue.
(Except for MINI which while sold by BMW dealers from spearate showroom is not real BMW - fortunately, and thus it has the hihgest reseale value in the car industry)
