I would guess some people would go BMW over MB now that amg's are AWD.

Some have made the switchover due to a $25 lower monthly payment.

Dat bmw service.

Probably because they're really ugly cars and it takes some people longer than others to realize it.

That was sarcasm, right?

Oh, the irony.

German Cars depreciate because they are sold at a higher price than they are worth.   really not worth more than any other. as common in Germany as a Toyota in Japan.  

 

and i also find the new Bimmers ugly. but that, of course is my own opinion.

I agree, modern BMWs just look cheaper and cheaper each generation. The E34 was probably the last great looking BMW.

Comparing prices of a year old M6 Gran Coupe with a RS7 and a CLS63, the RS7s are significantly more expensive than the M6. But the CLS63s are about 10.000 less then the M6 and even 20.000 Euros below the RS7. I dunno why, all three plattforms are about the same age. Probably the Audis come with more options, but on the other hand, the 6 Series and the CLS are aimed to a more upscale clientle than the A7 (BMW with significantly more powerful engines, front wheel drive at the base A7).

 

 

 

 

For me a good thing, because I would never consider buying these cars new and I think the rear end of the A7 is really ugly, almost as ugly as the BMW 5er GT.

 

On a sidenote, a friend of mine, who happens to be an oral surgeon, told me he was approached several times by sales reps, who were trying to push him into buying a  C63 at the price of a C 350 (which is about 20k Euros or 30 % off list). This seems to be a programm aiming for physicians and dentists in general.

I have seen M6's lower than that.

The Audi's seem rarer and therefore hold their value better, I've never liked the A7 until recently, where I started liking the S/RS models.

It was just a quick search, nothing serious. Regarding the rarity, there are about 40 M6 Gran Coupe, 60 CLS63 and 50 RS7 available at that site. And in general, I see the current generations of Audi S/RS or AMG models more often than the M's. Especially the Audi SQ 5 TDI is so often at the streets, I am starting to think that Audi gave the early customers a free engine upgrade ;-). (Yes, I know, the S-Models are more in line with the 35i/40d or 35d/40d in terms of price and performance).

The sq5 is a different beast, it's cheaper and a diesel, I looked on mobile the other day and there was less audis than the other two.

I'm yet to see one of the rs's in the street.

Ah, yes. Likely because it was designed by the masters. Spada and Mays. I did like Bangle a lot as well. Love or hate him, at least he made for a good discussion and was not bland.

Has anyone had to pay for gas on their loaners? I understand the idea because I'd be using my own gas if I wasn't in the loaner, but then my car should come back exactly where it started... What are everyone's thoughts?
