German AMS estimated a drop of 9.000 € per year (based on keeping the car 3 years and driving a total of 45.000 km).

Best regards, south

BMW's generally lose a lot of their value in the first year...

I tend to keep my cars around 6 years which lessens the hit. I paid US$53k for my E46 M3 in 6/01, and hope to sell it for US$28k +/- in a couple months, so that's only $3,750/yr. loss (not counting "improvements").

At 8000 miles/year, the annual depreciation on my 325ci has been (I know it's no M3, but for the record):

1st year: $2165 (+$1500 discount I got off MSRP)
2nd year: $2350
3rd year: $3000
4th year: $2420

MSRP was $33500, we are talking about 30% depreciation in 4 years for a 3-series in the US. The M3 might depreciate a bit faster since it costs more, but not much faster. The 30% in 4 years figure is consistent with what you are reporting for your E46 M3.

The above figures don't include tire costs. The 4th year ended last month, and I had my service guy redo both front and rear rotors for free before warranty expired, so I should be maintenance fee free until I get a hold of a M3 somehow within the next 3-9 months. Free maintenance rocks!

You'll have a chance. I threw that number out there, but I actually haven't researched pricing.

That's projecting a 45% drop over 4 years. Seems unlikely to me for the US market, but it is priced higher in the UK, so it may take a larger hit there.

A better way to market yours is to say it's a West Coast car and has not been salted! I've been to Lake Oswego many times, and it seemed like a mild place.
