The GFV on an M2 is around the £26k mark at 4 years old (32,000 miles).

As GFV is closer to a trade price, it will be a while before you can pick one up for £30k. You might have to settle for a higher mileage example or a CAT C.

There is no way that a car that can be bought now for 40-42k and which has a gfv of 26K in 4 years's time is going to have a trade in value close to the GFV.

GFV on the end of line M2s are artificially high to make the pcp deals affordable. A car that costs 42K now isn't going to be much more than 36K from a dealer in a years time, so a trade-in price of 33K tops. Would probably take a couple of years to start seeing these at 30K on the forecourt.

Did you put in a big deposit as you might be surprised what they offer for it? Unless it's owned outright?

I own it outright so I almost certainly wouldn't trade it in. Over the 48 cars I've owned I've never traded one in I've always sold privately as dealer quotes are shocking and I can afford to buy another car whilst I sell this one.

Not as good as having chosen the M2 to start with ;)

But then I didn't know pcp rates were so bloody good for them, I could have left the cash I paid for mine in the bank and paid it off in 3 years time!

Ho hum, live and learn (mind you the chances I'd have gotten 3 years down the line with the same car are slim. Being 38 and having owned 48 cars in 20 years of driving is quite a turnover rate!

Went there yesterday to look at the 17 plate. Nice set up, guy called Gary runs it, no hard sell, no bull sh*t and nice guy.
The 17 reg was the right colour & right spec but it had its run in service done late & when I mean late I mean seriously late.

The other M2 was all good but not the spec I was after.

Thanks for the replies guys.
Around the 32K mark would be around what I would want to spend. Hopefully that will be enough to bag myself a M2 with maybe 40k mileage in a few months time
And the next few months will be interesting. There aren’t an abundance of 2nd hand m2’s out there , all the pre reg will go in the next few months and all of a sudden availability will decline as all you will have is used m2’s.

We will see but I just don’t see them dipping as much as people think. I could be wrong though as my crystal ball has been caught out before.

However 32k for a high mileage one isn’t that unrealistic I suppose

Thanks for the info Kev. Guess the 17 plate is one to stay away from if it's had a late run in service.
66 plate looks good but like yourself the spec wasn't as good as others.

I've struggled to get a good deal o a new non pre-reg M2. Plenty of pre-reg ones about but most were built Dec 17 - Jan 18 so have been standing a while. Managed to get a brand new May built car for around a £1000 more.
