For those that bought Nav, it adds roughly 500 to the re-sale value. Not too bad as other than Automatic gearbox, all other options add zilch.
On my BMW Contract Hire quote the pro nav package was just short of 30/month incl the vat payable (half of 20%); over 47 months + 1 month deposit; so approx 1440 over the full term. Some options they see as adding to the residual and they'll be a bit cheaper than the full cost, e.g. nav, leather; but others - e.g. Harman Kardon - you're pretty much paying for the full cost of them,
