For a decent understanding in the US for depreciation, I would look at www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com. What I have seen on eBay, they tend (though not always, of course) very high mileage cars that have been pretty well thrashed. I think a 3 year 45-50% depreciation is typical, BMW being about 40%.
