Hagerty article

Both the E39 M5 and E46 M3 are on Hagerty's "8 hot classics under $30K that can be yours."

https://www.hagerty.com/articles-vid...2_Weekend_News

The golden age for BMW IMO. If I had space I'd add an E46 M3, but at least I have the S54 in my Z4M coupe.

It seems like our car has been picking up steam in the media lately. Hopefully we can see some decent value appreciation across the board in the next few years.

E46 has been hot lately but the last few auctions on BaT hint that the market could
Be finally cooling off a bit.

The Hagerty data for the M5 shows it basically flat lined for the past 18 months across all condition levels. My car sold on BaT in May 2018 for $34k ($35,700) and then it sold again a couple of weeks ago for $35,500 ($37,275), so I guess that lines up well with the Hagerty data...pretty much flat. It only makes sense that when the masses of articles coming out about the E39 M5 being the investment car of the future/have to have it/etc, at the very least such media attention usually marks an interim top in a market.

In the case of numerous Porsches such as the 1970s Turbo Carreras, that meteoric vertical assent in prices which saw prices quadruple from 2013-2015 and convinced the world it was the thing to own forever more, has resulted in a 30-40% decline since 2015 and still falling prices. Lots of hurt out there for the gotta-have-ems it appears.

Current stable:

2019 M2 Competition 6MT LBB, slicktop
2011.5 M3 sedan 6MT Silverstone, slicktop: Dinan front swaybar, Eibach rear swaybar, pins-out-max-camber-up-front, Dinan exhaust, Michelin PS4S, Apex EC-7 9.5/10.5x19
2007 328i wagon Silver/gray: Eibach 28mm front swaybar, E93 M3 rear swaybar, 219M M3 wheels, Michelin PSAS3+

ya once articles start coming out pronouncing a car is on the rise in value - that generally means the ride is probably already over!

Same old story - don't buy something you don't understand. Media coverage on how great our cars are is very gratifying for us as owners. But shouldn't drive non-enthusiasts to purchase as investments.


One other benefit - rising Hagerty values allowed me to increase my agreed-to value policy numbers. How can they say know, when they are publishing the numbers?
