also dont forget that people usually "pad" their asking price. so typically if you want to sell for 50k you would list it for 53k, and on the other hand the guy wants to pay say 48k so he offers 45k... so u guys, with civil negotiation, will reach a figure in the middle.
it'll eventually stabilize and depreciate less later.
you sir certainly lived up to the bad reputation of snobby rude M3 drivers
I actually agree... People don't warrant that type of response. Even if you "tested" the market you should look at all the listings online. The used ones from the dealership also come with CPO warranties and such. Plus you pay BMW Dealership (overhead).
In any case... if you really wanted to sell the car you would have offered another price after the low ball. Just keep it and next time you really want to sell your car give it some thought and play the game. You did put OBO. FIRM would be another word for your price.
