Does anyone know, in general, what car line suffers the worse depreciation at say 3 years and 5 years? Conversely, what car line has the least depreciation at these intervals? It's something that seems to be a little hard to come by in the states. I noticed in an English car magazine ("Car" maybe?) that they had a huge section that listed all the cars sold in England with stats including depreciation. The Audi thread got me thinking of this. I have a friend that has a beautiful A8 that is a joy to ride in but I suspect it will drop like a rock on resale. I'm in need of a daily ride, and I'd been thinking of a newer "last" generation 540i, maybe a 2001 or 2002, I don't know what has happened to their value and what is expected in the next 3 years on that vintage car. Any suggestions are appreciated.
