Alpina B7 Depreciation

Howdy all,

First post here, possibly last. I'm more likely to end up in an M3 than a 7, but I ran across a 2007 Alpina B7 for sale in Austin for what seems incredibly low, but then I don't generally keep up with the pre-owned prices of cars that started out in the $120k range.

This car is for sale for $36k @ 44k miles. Is that typical depreciation for a car like that?


What would a service run at 50-60k for something like this?

The car is just incredible looking, and I could see myself being pretty happy with it for a good while, and find something cheaper than the e46 M I was looking at to autocross.

Big BMWs get destroyed, there are M5s out there at that age for similar money.

If it has a clean history go for it.

LOL,

actually, the crowd at Bimmer forums pointed out my ignorance.

It's not an Alpina. Just a pretty 750il, I guess. Kind of strange they would advertise it as an Alpina on Craigslist. It's not a small dealership, but they had it right on the dealership ad.

Strange. Guess they were waiting for a sucker like me to walk in without checking.
