2007 e92 coupe depreciation with MY10 facelift

Hi,
I'm in the mkt for a 2ndhand 07 335i coupe. I hear the facelift is coming this fall. Should I wait til then to buy the car? It seems like the prior MY sedans depreciated rapidly when they had their facelift. Thanks.

No. Facelifts barely have any effect on depreciation. New models affect depreciation. Depreciation will always be there. Don't put off buying a car over it.

2006 330i Sonora w/ ActiveAutoWerke flash tune - I like it!
2004 330i ZHP Imola/NB - missed
2000 328i TiAg - gone but not forgotten

Don't tell the dealer that. You are doing them a favor buying an extremely unreliable, massively depreciated time bomb from them in this god-awful economy. Walk in with this attitude (polite & respectful of course), walk out with a really good deal.

You may be correlating the depreciation of the facelift sedans with a turn in the economy..
