      Ideal Cars , I couldn’t disagree more. You just named five money pits that will cost owners big bucks, especially with the onslaught of high performance EVs that cost $8-10 to fill up and no maintenance. All the cars named will depreciate big time in the next 5 years.

      All of those definitely great buys. But after you buy them why would someone want to sell them in a year. I would keep any of those cars a couple of decades 👍

        Have a 2006 BMW Z4M purchased almost 8 years ago (same engine as E46 M3). The "won't lose a dime" is misleading. 20 mpg, maintenance (expensive tires, oil, valves), repair, insurance. If I didn't want to lose a dime I would have bought a used Honda and still would have lost money just not as much. Depreciation is only one of many costs.

          I find s2000 has held its value more than any production car I've ever looked up even one with 200k miles are still around 20k for a 4 cylinder Honda!!!! Its insane.

            The guys driving the stick in this video need to learn to go easy with their shifting, seriously they look like they're trying to pull the shifter off the console.

                  Sure you may not lose money on them but the after the upkeep and maintenance you would never recoup your initial investment.

                      Sure, these cars are inexpensive, but some of them are insanely expensive to repair, e.g. the Aston Martin.

                                Got an E46 M3 even rarer than your green example. One of 70 worldwide in Sterling Silver (Individual car) with 6-speed, no sunroof, and fabric insert manual seats.

                                    Bought a 2015 Jag T-type R. Only year coupe w/ RWD and arguably the best looks (first year V8 550hp coupe). Was $107k + previous owners add-ins for $60k. It will be $45k-$55k in 2-3 years and level off. That kind of depreciation I can handle. How people can spent $100k on a car - GT350R, C8, etc - and take a 40-50% haircut in a year or two is beyond me. Not a game for blokes like me that still work for a living.

Maybe you know of a car that wasn't designed to rust for the inside out, or a car that was made not to rust full stop. Great vid btw.

One is that it may be possible to get a good price on BaT. However, of all the desirable cars I've seen go across the block on that site, I have yet to see one go for a price that I would pay. Obviously, they bring what the market will bear, so for me it is a site to sell on, if you can get a listing slot, but not a favorable one to buy on. Second point is that you and I think a lot alike. I enjoy buying cars right, using them for a few months to a few years, then selling them for not just what I bought them for, but for that amount plus any upkeep I have put into them, and a profit. It's one of my favorite games to play.

                                                                              • N C

If you were to take a smaller sample of more mainstream models then you would also see squiggly lines.

If you want an e46 that retains value, make sure its a 6MT, any one of the blue colors, rod bearing kept up with, vanos and cooling maintained and rear subframe reinforced properly.
