[WTB] Which 2009 CPO will make me lose less when resold in 2~3 years?

I am dciding which to buy:
1. The loaded silver one (33k mile, asking for $37k. Sport/premium package, NAV).

or
2. The unloaded white one (10k mile only, asking for $34k. ).


My question is: which one will make me lose less money in a resale 2~3 years after? I personally don't care whether the car is loaded. The only things matter to me are: 2DR, xDrive, i6 engine and good condition.

Price-wise, I prefer the unloaded white one. But I live in the same city of the loaded silver one. If you guys think I will lose less with the unloaded white one, I will manage to buy it and ship it to my city (Sounds tiring. Have never done distant car shopping before. Do I better fly to test drive it before buying?)

I will use this 335 to commute and for weekend trips. I drove ~9k mile/yr. Assuming no accident and economy crash in 2~3 years, how much do you think I can resell for each car? Or just tell me which car would you prefer buying 2~3 years after.

IMO, you will always lose less with the loaded, they are typically more desired

Thanks for reply. I believe when the price is the same, a loaded car will be more preferred. But in past few months, I found that those multi-owner unloaded 335 are sold much faster than those loaded pricy ones. I can be wrong, but don't you think it is easier to resell a cheaper car without too much option packages in it? Especially considering that when a folk wana buy a 3rd hand car, he probably only cares about the color/mileage and price. (?)

I just bought my cpo and I only searched for cars with bells and whistles. I don't see the point of a nice car if it doesn't have the features that are now becoming standard on base models

Go for the loaded one and talk them down. All those extras are well worth it imo.
