Depreciation help/thoughts

Looking at a '16 M5 and would like intelligent thoughts on depreciation with respect to the '18-19 model being on the floor.

Asking in this forum b/c there are likely many F10 owners.

Thanks,

They drop in value like a rock thrown into a lake. They are fast, but hard on gas and not a "super car". My dealer has 3 on the lot that have been sitting for months and the 2019's are inbound - if they actually order more of these. In Canada, everyone is buying SUVs - sedans are almost dead. In Canada, for the last two years running, BMW sold more X series than cars. that should tell you something about depreciation of new cars.

I don't think the high depreciation of cars like the M5 is related to the increased popularity of SUVs. The depreciation was high even before... The problem is that these cars become a problem as they age. Too difficult and expensive to repair and keep them running well. There isn't exactly a huge market out there of people who want to deal with this.

Thank you both for your input, I'm going to stay away from both M5 models for at least a few years.

The depreciation on M's isn't that much worse than other cars in its price range, it's just that a 50% depreciation over 3 years on a $120k car hurts more than it would on a Kia.

They are expensive to maintain so if you decide to go with one used, I'd strongly recommend an extended warranty.

If you look at a used M5, I think the sweet spot is ~3 years old.

Donít stay away! Get one while it still too expensive for the riff raff to get a hold of it and the snobs have moved on to the next! This way you will have a nicely broken in car under warranty that you know and can document the history from a young age. I returned my 2014 after a 3 yr lease and have regretted it ever since!! The car was perfect. Just barely breaking in and I had all service records in hand. Get a lease return and enjoy the benefits of a like new car that will bring you years of enjoyment.
