Default E92 M3 Depreciation Analysis

I have been doing research in preparation for an E92 M3 purchase in the spring 2015 time frame.

Attached is my depreciation analysis based off the data I was able to cobble together from yahoo and following some of the threads around here. After referencing the work with cars.com I believe I am close but I would appreciate any additional feedback. I attached the spreadsheet if anyone else would like to use to plan their purchase.

My goal is well option 2012 E92 M3 in spring 2015 for around $42-44k with 30k miles.

-Matt

I wonder how the introduction of the new F80/82 M3/4 will bend those curves, if at all?

Does anyone recall the effects of the E90/92 on the E46 prices, presuming the effect will be somewhat analogous?

You could probably meet your goal sometime this year. Probably in the next couple of months if you look hard enough.

Thanks for the SS. I'm on the same track as you. I'm just trying to figure out how I can keep my E46 too!

Default Re: E92 M3 Depreciation Analysis

I used to do this all the time, waiting for the "perfect" time to buy an M3.

I started making similar spreadsheets starting in 2005. I wanted to buy an E46, but they were $50k at the time. So I started watching the market

Fast forward to 2011-2012, you can find E46 M3s for $20k, but they were not clean, e.g. high miles etc. The ones I wanted were $30k, but I had a hard time justifying that for a car that was already 7 years old.

Ended up buying a 2009 E93 in 2012, unplanned purchase. I found a good deal on one that was single owner, lease return, to a BMW dealership. Not my first color choice (Jet Black), but it was loaded and I couldn't resist.

Moral of the story: Have you money ready cause there never is a "right" time to buy a car. You'll end up waiting forever!

Thanks for the perspective; I will keep that in mind.

Default Re: E92 M3 Depreciation Analysis

Here's one way to look at it.

Would you buy a 2011 in Spring 2014 for the same price and miles?

I hope my car is worth $0 when I'm dead.

Another useless about thread forecasting the future.

Default Re: E92 M3 Depreciation Analysis

well said I am in the same dilemma sold my E46 M3 for top dollar in December and really getting fed up looking. Here in Canada 2013 E92 M3's are going for 75-80 these people are freaking nuts!!!! for that price I would just go with a M4. Every car I go see either has been painted scratches dents....WTF My 10 year old M3 didnt have a mark on it. Hopefully when the M4 comes out the E92 will drop in price. It is a good thing that they hold there value though!
