Sheer resale value... not really worth it eh? Maybe on a 5 or 7 series perhaps. It just wasnt a huge colour change. To a layman, the ruby black looked just like the standard black!!
Honestly i've always bought my car's with 1 person in mind, ME! I've always said i never want to regret anything on a car i own, so to hell with resale value and alike, i want the car which i'm proud of and that is special in it's own way.
Mind you i've hedged my bets, the last car i had, i gave it to my mum when i was done with it and my brother has already put his hand up to buy my current one at the start of 09 for what'd be left on the finance (which should be a fair bit below mkt value, as i didnt finance the whole thing).
