I had to reiterate something that I said earlier... (Perhaps in a different thread)
I've always bought used.
I'm currently driving an 05 BMW 545i with all the options.
I paid $26,000 (cnd) this last fall, and the car had 60k on the clock.
I've put 300 bucks into it for a new thermostat, and I've bought summer rims/tires.
Please explain how my $26,000 will cost a great amount of resources as opposed to a new one ($90,000'ish CND) ?
Plus... I went to my dealer inquiring about a CPO 335i coupe... They'll give me 23k for my car (I'm in a smaller market, which brings higher trade in values)
I'd like to see someone with a new 550i lose 3k in depreciation after 8 months of driving.
