I think it has. KBB had the Q7 as having top resale in its segment for a while now. I got a fantastic trade-in value on my 2007 Q7, which I traded in for my X5.

Used Q5s and Q7s are overpriced. (Just by looking at autotrader)

We leased our 2008 Q7 for 36 months. It's a loaded S-line version that stickered for a shockingly low at the time $58K! (X5 was in the 70's)). I bought it off lease for $29k with 20k miles on it when the resale was $42k. Can't really say this would be the case with many BMW models.
Yeah, when the Q7 first came out, it was a tremendous value. My loaded one (everything but S-Line, air suspension, towing) retailed for like $54k. Now, a loaded one can hit $70k easily, just like the X5.
