Having said that, I remember a few years ago when I was looking at used M5s and M6s, they were basically the same price but 1 year apart. I could get a 2 year old M5 for $65K or a 3 year old M6 for that (price is just an example). So new market I couldn't see paying the difference, used market is where things get interesting because I think the M6 loses value faster than the M5 because of the high starting price.
+1. i haven't looked up any residuals or anything, but my impression is that the 6er line up tends to lose value faster than other bmw lines, which usually hold pretty well.
