Maybe I hang out on the wrong forums, but I've read the E65/66 ain't that cheap to run either, and they certainly depreciate as badly as the Q-porte. The reason's the same as the Maserati - perceived high maintenance costs. Weird when you consider one's running a Ferrari engine and is considerably less common, while the 4.8L is in tons of maintstream BMWs. Edmunds' TCO estimator says you'll spend $17,300 running a 750i for 5 years (repairs and maintenance, $66k total). I can't see the Maser being much more.
