Now that will start a lot of controversy on the list!
The reason an E28 M5 will hold its value better? Easy- desirability.
The M5 of that era was a handbuilt car built in Garching by the Motorsport
division in their own little factory. The S38 engine is a handbuilt engine
that traces its roots to the BMW M1 and is an exotic car engine.
They're also very rare- 1000 made? That was the first M car to make it to
the US, barring the M1.
Now find one of the uber-rare black on black buffalo hide Canadian spec
cars- 1 of 20, IIRC.
