The e46 will probably take the most hit. The e36 is quite despised, beside the m3.

Omg. So many necro-threads lately..............

And idk if youve heard, but the 335i is the next Supra, so we should all be looking at some appreciation, yes? *sarcasm*

HAHAHA! but hey in a sense it's true I mean of course something better is always bound to come out. E46 isn't forgotten it's probably going to be a classic like the E30 but I highly doubt the E9x are going to be classics.
Honestly all bmw's are classic to me. I could see myself in a mint E34,E39,E60 or E30,E36,E46,E92 ... if the car is cared for and mint it still catches my eye.

I had an f30 luxury line as a loaner the other day and I really could not see why someone would buy that over a cheaper like like a sonata or something. That's the category I felt it was.

BMWs are pretty much always classy and have a timeless design (with the exception of the E83 X3. I hate that stupid looking thing. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING BMW?)

In terms of previous 3 series platforms, the e30, e36, etc. are still beautiful looking cars to this day. The reason why they are forgotten and we don't see them as much on the road is because the majority of BMW owners today consider a BMW as nothing more than a status symbol. I'll bet you 90% of the time when a person purchases a BMW, the only thing they think about is status. They don't care about performance numbers or the driving dynamics, they just want to tell the world that they are successful and have money. And obviously to show the world that you are rich and successful, you have to have a new shiny car. No status buyer would dare own a pervious generation 3 series because they fear that owning an older car will lead others to classify them as a lower class. This is what makes older generation cars seem unattractive and forgotten to most people. The car itself is not bad looking, people make them out to be due to their negative impact on one's perceived social class thus making them forgotten.

To me personally, I will never forget about my e92 M3. I didn't buy it so I could show off to people. I bought it because I love driving it. There are so many things that I love about it such as the high revving V8, the linear power delivery, the styling, etc. I will replace it when I find another car that gives me the same amount of joy or more. It could be the new M3 or the M3 after that or some other car. But I am sure that I won't be buying the next gen M3 just because it will be the next gen M3.

You summed it up... At least for the "prestige" models. I think this is the reason that 5 and 7 series BMW's depreciate much faster than 3 series, and M models hold their value best. There are more people interested in owning previous generation 3 series or M models. These are the enthusiasts that are into driving and wait for the car to come down in price.

When I bought my E39 5 Series, I only looked at manual transmission cars. Think about it: Status poseurs buy automatics only, enthusiasts want to drive.

QFT. And the sounds are glorious too... I used to have an E28 535i (evolution of that same block) and I was always accelerating faster than I really needed to just so I could listen to it.

If I win the lottery I would love to have a 3.0 coupe... with a E34 M5 drivetrain in it. Yes I have actually seen such a car...!

It's strange really, buying a BMW as a symbol of wealth and status? I paid less than 30K for my BMW used, but I could go out and buy a decked out Ford Pickup and easily spend 50k on it.

Then again I'm neither a baller or shot caller, nor do I have 20 inch blades on my Impala.
