My head ruled this time,
a £59k motor with less than 6k miles on the clock, loaded with goodies, at over 40% off of list.
That makes the depreciation journey "much more comfortable".
I'm with you Pete apart from the more research I did the more
Gadgets I wanted especially HUD. For an F30 this seems a rare option. My personal feeling is that if you decide to buy new you might has well enjoy the benefit of choosing your spec and depreciation is inevitable. I hope six years on my pain will be softened, no point thinking of changing before that for me.
