NFS: My 330i 06 plate books at 11K now, down from 34 paid / 38 list. Less than 30%. But I can't get an offer of over 10.5K anyway.

DXB: Red / brown leather is one of the new 09MY colours. replaces terra, lemon etc etc. Its the first non black i've liked.
Book value (average condition trade in) for my 330i is currently 12k (56 plate / 45k miles).

For a 55 plate / 65k car it's 10k.

So in theory I'm looking at only 2k depreciation over the next 12 months. If the values recover, maybe even less.

Can't bring myself to sell based on those numbers, although I would love a 335i.
