Will not be answering to specific model of BMW but will just comment solely on BMW as a second hand car.
As a whole, BMW is the Ultimate Driving Machine when they are NEW and comes with warranty. The market price will generally reflect the demand and perceived value of a vehicle.
There are many factors determining how a second car is valued:
1. Maintenance and cost of parts
2. Attractiveness and performance
3. Overall demand for the vehicle in 2nd hand market
4. Cc of car, generally 3.0 and above drops faster bcoz expensive roadtax
5. Reliability of cars as they get older
6. Ease of finding a mechanic to repair
Now having list down the factors let's look at why BMW is PERCEIVED to be value for money in the second hand market.
BMW being a luxury brand is selling at way below their new price in the second hand market. The reasons are very simple. BMW as a second hand car is very costly to be maintained and they frequently breakdown in our Tropically climate. BMW isn't reliable as it gets older unlike Japanese cars. The only reason the prices of BMW cars second car isn't lower than its current value is its luxury brand. For BMW cars, you do need specialise mechanic that adds to its cost of maintenance. Its like going to a specialist doctor vs a normal clinic doctor.
Overall, BMW as a second hand car isn't actually affordable if you account for its lifetime maintenance costs as well as stresses when the car breakdown on the roadside.
