So I've check a few resources to see what a person should really be paying and they show first year depreciation at over $10,000 with the following two years averaging about $5000 each. Is this accurate? I know it depends on many variables but lets just say the average M3 is in outstanding condition and has 12K miles a year.
From what I'm seeing most people can easily get an M3 for $500 over invoice. So ... Lets say I find a 2010 that sold for $69500 should I be looking to pay $49,500 or less (2013s have been out for awhile)?
How much do you think a car depreciates the minute you drive it off the lot?
I'm just trying to get a grip on real prices.
