Most of the decent used car price guides will list the price
of the vehicle when new. These prices are supplied to give
potential buyers an idea of depreciation. Audi current values
compared to price when new is bad, really bad. I attribute alot
of this to the discussion now on the list...unintended
accelation, which destroyed the market for Audi. My 1990 V8Q
listed for $47,450, and is now worth $13,250 wholesale.
But, like the printed sticker, the value guides don't take
manufacturer incentives, rebates etc. into account.
Those on the list who bought their Audi's new, can take
some solice from the resale on the BMW 750IL.
The 1989 model sold new for a little over $70,000.00 US, and
today is worth $13,205 at wholesale.
... Back up my hard disk? I can't find the reverse switch!
