Could well be the same with the 3 series xDrive. In 3 or 4 years time when I come to get rid you'd imagine that as it doesn't have the RWD that puts so many people off it could really enhance it's value.
Would be nice to think that but I am a realist and I don't think it will keep its value more than other models. I intend not to worry too much about the Depreciation, accept it and just enjoy the car. Xdrive of course!
