i know a fella that has been trying to sell his 7 series for a while with no joy
at all he,s asking for 2 grand, but i,ve been browsing at similar spec and condition and it seems that these big cars ain,t worth a lot no matter how tidy they are, i othered to help with online advertising but know i,ve come to the conclusion that these big ol motors have fallen out of bed and no one wants them any more.

This is the case with big executive cars unfortunatley. When bought from new the depreciation is terrible even on the best models. I bought a 728 back in august but i know that when the time comes i will get little in return for it. It may be worth stripping it for parts if it has a lot of the optional extras fitted, the sum of its parts maybe worth more than the car.

If there is a MINT example out there then the buyer is getting a WHOLE lot of car for his money. I too have noticed that there are some really cheap motors about with moo-hass-ive engines in them:hihi

Ideal for engine conversion junkies:hihi

just imho tbh
who needs a 7 after the airport chaffeur has finished with it?
if i was still with the ex and thinking about my next family car,do i have a need to go bigger than an e46?....no,not really.
the 7 has a very small audience...and thats a real shame,as they are great cars.
i really feel nobody needs a bigger car than an e60...if they do they'll be thinking espace or (god forbid) ulyssee

Those that have a modest fund behind them at this moment in time will be laughing their socks off:shifty:
Not quite!! some of the cars have mysteriously gone up in value on the forecourts but they are still sitting around unsold month after month (this observation is focusing on the Audi RS4, RS6, E55K). Non specialist models like 530/40's, Merc CLS500, Audi A8 etc are hillarious to watch as they fall.

Back on topic, older large executive saloon with guzzling engines in particular are attractive as you get a lot of car for the money, however people do think twice about seriously buying one as they will have the same issues when they want to sell it on. In addition I find that more of these executive cars, once cheap enough are bought by people that either can't afford to maintain them or refuse to pay for correct servicing knowing that it will not make any real difference to the value.

In all honesty though Mark your e46 is not far off the size of a 7 series on the year in question:hihi It's definitely got to be on a par with an E39 5 series:lol:lol:lol

Yep, got it over a 3 year with GFV so can just hand it back when the time comes, was hoping to move it on before that as it was just something I had to get out of my system, and then go to a more sensible 330d.

Prices at the moment are brilliant from a buyers point of view. When i get my cheque from my insurance company i can most upgrade to a 330ci sport from my 320ci se with similar mielage to what my old one had. Hope the prices dont increae by the time i do get paid out though lol.
