It is what someone is prepared to pay. I would for example still pay $110k for a near new one as they are just that good a car.... way more fun than an M3 IMO
Agree 100% Ian.

I'd say that 1Ms will be trading at $85k within six months-- and there's nothing wrong with that. Its been almost two years since I bought my car and I paid $109k new. Why should I expect more than $85k for it now?!

I'd say $97k now and $90k later this year for cars under 10,000km

However, they don't seem to sell easily

Most of us who bought early paid around that money iirc. We only paid $112 in August last year to pick up Vader, our AW car was $110. As I said before some people are dreamers trying to make a profit out of their cars after 12 months.

Speculators were not counting on BMW selling 200 1Ms in Aus.

Pardon my ignorance but what was the last BMW model that made any money for speculators? The transaction costs would eat most "profits" no?

302 cars actually, but who's counting.

Given our tax system for the automotive industry, ie LCT, GST, STAMP DUTY et al, it is very hard to make money out of any car on resale. You always loose that money, someone else has to pay more tax if they are buying your "used" car...... Again. Take tax out of the equation and they (1Ms) are doing really well.

If you are going to speculate / gamble - Better off speculating on heritage numeric plates IMH and biased O

No gst or stamp issues.

But on these you definitely make your future profit when u buy.

Most of the early buyers got the car for list. I got a little lucky because the sales rep miscalculated the price by something like $1,000 or $1,5000 and when they discovered his boss said they would honour the quoted price.

Too early for leases to be expiring. Sellers just want new toys perhaps.
