Value of M Sport 535i in used car market
 
What's a good guess of the value of a 2010 535i with M Sport in 3 years time? I'm trying to make a decision about purchasing a CPO that I would hold until the warranty is about to expire.

Almost everything about this car seems very desirable. Colors, options, overall condition are great. Negotiated price today is somewhere between 36k and 37k, which I think is about right.

Car currently has roughly 25k miles. In 3 years' time, the car would probably have between 40k and 45k miles. I would eventually sell it privately.

I like the car, but I want to make sure the economics make sense.

18-19k.

I'd say closer to $23k

Robert A,

Aren't you the CPA :thumbup: If a client asks you the same question then what will be your answer?:D There is a E60 thread created by paulo6 which he wants to trade up to a 2010 535 M Sport. His 2008 535ix (56K miles) dealer trade-in value was $19K:yikes:. Avg asking price on Autotrade is around $24K. A good guess with your car with about 45K miles in 3 yrs would be low $20s. If you could sell the car for $22K in 3 yrs, then you will avg about $5k per year in car payments. To me, $5K per year to drive a luxury sport car make sense.

What are the options on the 2010 535? Interesting that the negotiated price is around $36K-$37K. About $4K less than what I'm asking for my car with 29K miles and babied to the T. I estimate my 550i M Sport with 50K in 3 yrs would be around $25K.

Yes I am a CPA.

The dealer made a statement that M-Sport cars carry significantly extra value in the used car marketplace relative to Sport. I'm questioning the group if this is true because it will play into my own estimate of future value.

This car has nav, PDC, sports auto, M-Sport, Value (which includes leather). The only common feature missing is Premium. MSRP is around 59.5k.

The car will run about $40k with tax. If it's worth $22k in 3 years (which is really a guess based on my '07), then the monthly cost at 0.9% interest is $523/month, which doesn't seem like a terribly good deal relative to buying new.

Yes, that is true about the E60 M-Sport cars. While I was doing some research in the 5Series.net forum about my sale, E60s with M-Sport Package get more hits then non-sport. I was looking at the used E60 market in the NJ area and not much with M-Sport package. I can't say the same for the F10 M-Sport. I see them all over in central Jersey.

Surprise you didn't went with the year-end 24 month lease special on the 2013 535 M-Sport. You could've gotten one from Jon for about $550 with 7 MSD.

GL with your purchase:thumbup:

If BMW were still making a 5 Series, as I understand a 5 Series to be, I wouldn't be looking at a 2010.

That would be my guess too. My 2008 is worth about 23K right now I think.

My personal opinion, based on past experiences, is that the M sport package adds only a nominal, if any, price increase in resale. What it does help with is getting the car sold quicker, but certainly most dealers/wholesalers aren't going to give you anywhere near the premium price the option cost.

With regards to your cost of ownership calculations, it's hard to get ahead when buying directly from the dealer. Not only are they maintaining a certain level of profit on the vehicle but they are bundling in overpriced warranty and possibly maintenance expenses. The ownership math works much better if you can source one of these from a wholesale auction, or private party, then add the warranty on aftermarket, or not at all. I wouldn't pay more then $30K for a 2010 535 and I am sure your dealer didn't either.

Hey Robert the dealership I work for is selling a 2010 m sport that has been CPO'd for much less than your negotiated price. PM me for details!

Good comments. Have no prob buying privately, but I hardly ever see 3 year old 5s, probably because most are leased.
