Buying new

A high asking price means this car won’t sell in massive numbers - don’t expect a discount. Some options like ceramic brakes cost a lot and you’re unlikely to see all the money back come resale time.

Other extras could help it stand out when you come to sell. Things like the larger 20-inch wheels for example, and any shiny gadgets like the uprated stereo system.

Parkers price projector

The Parkers price projector shows you how much your car is likely to be worth after three years and 60,000 miles if you're selling to a dealer. The graph shows how steep the depreciation is for the entire range (the top line shows the more expensive models in the range; the other shows the cheaper).

Parkers price projector is based on decades of market expertise and analysis to current trends.

Buying used

This is a high-performance car so try and avoid any that have been driven (badly) on a track. Inspect alloy wheels carefully because any necessary repairs could be pricey, and the same goes for a worn interior.

Make sure any repair or warranty work has been carried out properly and get behind the wheel of the car for as long as possible so you can detect any undue knocks and rattles under the bonnet.

The standard 6 Series holds its value reasonably well, but even so, don’t expect to get anything like what you paid for your M6 back when you come to sell.

Keeping a full BMW service record will make your car more attractive to buyers and it’s also worth trying to attract enthusiasts from owners' clubs and websites.

Ensure the car is clean and tidy inside and out and get a good set of pictures taken that show every corner of the car. Otherwise it looks like you’ve got something to hide.
