Last M with a bespoke engine, last M with a NA motor, only M3 with a V8, last M with a hydraulic steering rack, highest-revving M car, last two-door M3, etc.
I completely agree. Well said sir

Sadly I think every car will be a hybrid or have turbo engine in less than 30 years.

Say goodbye to beastly engines everyone, we'll be on some lame ass electric car forums soon lol

Yes they will be worth something. I don't like Carbuzz article, but I am also licensed appraiser and follow the M market closely. This is not e30, but e46 have also started to rise and were cheaper @ 5 years ago than now. Still can find good deals but a quality car is catching some good coin. That being said, based on numbers alone the e90 will hold a very strong value in the near future.
i know what the E9x numbers are, i dont know what the E46 are.

That's not to say they won't be worth money. I don't see a decent one being $8000 in 15 years, but at the same time, you won't see the ridiculous rise in price the E30's are seeing.
i am not really saying values will go up a HUGE amount. I feel there will always be some demand for this car. I think it will be a "classic" , not necessary a collectable

you are correct on that, what I meant was the e9x platform was not a limited run. However the e36 m3 sedan was produced in much less quantity than the coupe counterpart and I don't see it being worth more than a e36 M3 coupe.

More or less anything with an M badge (a "proper") one will hold their value. What usually happens is that they all tank at some point, then come back up and values stay up. And this includes the E36 which is the cheapest M car you can get. A very clean E36 in a desirable color like the one I have is worth low teens now. I'm confident that I can drive it for another 2 years, and get what I paid out of it at a minimum.

Yep, where most cars slide down and down and eventually end up scrapped, performance-oriented/sports cars hit bottom and slowly crawl back up to some level where they either hold or become collector cars. I've watched four of my past cars follow this curve. For some reason I seem to sell them at or near the bottom of the curve. Although, with my air-cooled 911-S, I bought and sold on each side of the dip and got the same amount out of it that I had paid at purchase 7.5 years earlier! 'Course, now it's worth 3X as much...

I just don't understand this need to feel like you own something special, which clearly isn't. It's an incredible car by all standards, don't get me wrong, and will most certainly always be seen a successful model-run for the M series. But it's not above and beyond where it'll significantly hold value above it's current depreciation trajectory.

Sure, 25 years from now, if you own a low mileage, showroom condition, all original, cherry E9x, it will be sought after and quite collectible. But that's true for just about any "sports car" with "semi-limited" production.

"Keep pumping out new options for me, car manufacturers," "Keep trying to one up yourselves and the competition," "Keep pouring millions into R&D" I say. That's what is important... long term, overall progress.

This is what is happening with the S2000 right now. It was limited production-only about 5k a year imported into the US, only about 25k total over the run. Being set up for oversteer, many have bitten the dust.

Even so, my 2003 (most desirable year) with low miles has yet to get back to the original blue book. It's within a few $k, but expecting anything other than "less of a depreciation loss" seems optimistic.

^this. Plus two additional factors. If reviews for the new Mustang GT are positive, it would displace some demand for the used M market. While it may not have the badge appeal and premium equipment, it will have a warranty and more torque.

However, if the new M 3/4 is rejected as a fail, that could boost the e9x.

Denying the car is something special while at the same time proclaiming it's an incredible car presents such a contradiction that I can't help but conclude that the thinking is, no offenses intended, the product of a confused mind. What's surprising is how many posters express, more or less, the same sentiment.
You need to compile all the awards, compliments, achievements and recognition this car has stockpiled. Then you are more likely to let go of the fatuous notion it is no more exceptional than, say, a Ford Focus.

Let's face it, cars are a crappy investment! There are sooooo many other things to invest in if you want to "make money" in the future. The only value to this car for me is the sheer excitement of driving it. Say what you want, this car will continue to depreciate. Sure if you don't drive it, it won't drop as much but don't expect it to appreciate any time soon. It's like marrying a super model and not touching her so that she's nice and fresh for the next guy. Stupid! Drive it like you stole it. It'll run better and you'll get your money's worth. Invest in something else...

Agreed ^^^

With low miles any performance car will hold its value and then slowly creep up ....with the S65 it is special. However, if you have a high mileage track beater with tons of mods...like most do....don't bet on it.

If the bottom fell out of my car's value tomorrow, it wouldn't change how I feel about it when I look at it as I walk away from parking it or how I feel when I'm behind the wheel (moving OR sitting still). I did not buy this car as an investment and while it's fun to think it may be "worth something" someday, to me that day is now. It only matters to me the "worth" I put into this car. I'm approaching my mid 50's and have owned and driven many different types of cars and this car - by far - is the best bange for my buck. I absolutely love this car and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.

Gas prices

You guys are not factoring in gas prices , the price of all v8 call drop when gas cost go up . And gas Prices are not coming down anytime soon.

To a certain extent most of these guys here don't really care about fuel prices - if they did they wouldn't be driving an M3 as a DD. I'm not well off by any stretch and even If the price doubled it wouldn't change my life at all.
