For example, how many Mercedes C55s have you seen in the past 5 years compared to E46 M3s driving around? I've probably seen more E36 M3s on the streets than I've seen C55s. Point being, I think M3 owners are in the best position (compared to MBZ, Audi and especially the Lexus IS-F) as far as resale value, even in the face of newer versions being released.
Very true. Think about it, you don't see Civic ricers putting MB badges on their cars or MB mirrors, etc. We may mock them, but they are trying in their own misguided way to pay homage to our M3s, and if they could afford them, that's what they want to buy, which keeps the resale market pretty good for us.
