I'm hoping that the M3 is similar to the M5v10 in regards to residuals. It even after 3years still it still holds 65% of it's value which equates to 43.5K, that's a drop of 23.5K. If the same residuals apply to the M3 that means in 3years it will be worth 33K, dropping only 17K.

I sincerely hope it doesn't match the M6 because after 3years it only holds 50% and that means it loses a whopping 41,750, that almost 18K more than the M5 and when you combine what you paid extra with the extra money you lose by buying the M6 that equates to an incredible 34K.

I know this may only apply to the UK but for us lot over here it is something to think about.
