The 1

Post by Deadeye »

Just got the email about the "new 1 Series".

They've ruined it, end of.

Even worse, they were given the same template to use as Mercedes with the A-Class. I bet the lights are interchangeable.

Still, those of us with M140i Shadows should benefit from an increase in value!
F82 M4cp - Special Colours!
F87 M2 - most toys - gone!
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!

I agree.

But then I'm going mad. I thought you had an M2.

I did but chopped it for an M4CP but we have an M140i shadow too.

Thank God for that. I'll cancel the appointment with my psychiatrist.

M140s were being pumped out for low, low monthlies literally by the boatload so the chances of that are absolute zero, unless you stick it in a hermetically sealed garage for 50 years, and even then, there'll be no petrol to power it when you do put it on the block.

That's depressing Pubbie, that's blown my plans and I think your right about petrol scenario.

Soo this is interesting, i work at a used car site and can regularly check cap values and id’s

Since the m140i manual production stopped the manual cars cap id’s has improved and residules for 3 months on the trot actually went up..

Guess what this month too for the autos...

This is because suddenly there are no new cars to spink away by the dealers... so now you want a good one you need to go used,

So while they may not gain a load of money, their rate of depreciation will now slow..
