America most be different that UK when it comes the GTI residuals. I sold the wife GTI back to the dealer at a straight price for £15,400 and this was a 2yr 3mth old car with 15,300miles and a list price at new of £21K.
Even 3 year old cars are making upwards on £13,400 in good condition which is 64% and this is in the present economical climate.
Frankly given the choice I would still pick the GTI before a 1 series, even if it was the dearer option.
