Not sure why, not that I am complaining cos I cant afford a new one, so High depreciation equals lots of car for me. As I said I guess a fair comparison for the 9000 is the BM 5 series, and I guess that if you saw 2 for sale, same age and miles etc the 5 series would probably sell for twice as much.
