I wouldn't sell my AW/FR 08 sedan slicktop single hump for less than 25k today, even with 107k on the dash.

In 15 years, even cars with >100k, as long as they are unmolested and especially in desirable spec (read: special editions, individual paint, slicktops, single hump dash, etc), with good maintenance history and ownership history (read: not cars that have been passed around 12 owners and sent to auction 3 times) will be appreciating like crazy.

In a world where self driving electric robot mobiles become the norm, cars such as the e9x will be increasingly desirable and exotic. They are proving to be more reliable and well built long term than e46M as well, and currently are changing hands at prices that make the e46M value proposition essentially a joke, especially when you consider the additional neediness those cars have.

In summary, if you have a well taken care of unmolested e9x m3, you can drive it as a weekender and take care of it and it will lose nil value short term and will appreciate long term. It's a win-win car.
That's the boat I'm in. I could make money on my car now and have a baby on the way next month. But I'm really trying to hang on to it as i know I won't find anything comparable again for awhile.

You're making me regret putting mine up for sale! This is my second E9x M3 and I definitely regretted selling the first one. I took the M out of winter storage this past weekend at the request of a local buyer, a fellow forum member, and we went on a spirited drive and wow was it fun. And now that my RS6 Avant order is canceled, even more reason to just get the RBs done and hang on to the beast. Couldn't agree with you more on the long term value of these beautiful, naturally aspirated, high-revving V8 machines!
