    Default What car won't lose any money in 6 months?

    I've just broken my vectra vxr up and really need another car as i'm relying on my work van which i hate driving

    I want to hopefully get a 08/58/09 plate vec vxr in 6 months max


    What car could i buy now for around 6/7/8k that won't lose a penny when i come to sell it.

    I've looked at the following

    E39 535i sport or 530i sport
    mk5 golf gti
    audi a3 3.2


    i can't see any of them loosing much if any value. any other car which i should consider

    cheers

    I don't think that sort of car really exists mate, or we'd all be driving them...

    if you get a bargain you might be lucky, sometimes the last of a particular model if the replacement has a big price hike can do ok.

    anything that is still considered a collectable or a classic - unless you have a mint load of money and can order a car thats not been priduced yet and be at the front of the list to sell the rights to someone else on the day of release

    a classic or a golf/audi should be pretty good

    in reality, probably nothing in this price range. You might get fortunate and sell a "cult car" on to an enthusiast for a similar price you paid for it, but in these times of recession that is by no means a certainty.
    Budget for substantial loss whatever car you buy - short of buying Mclaren F1.

    or you could get a decent old bmw or vw for about £1k (say 15-20yr old car), then you're never going to lose a large amount by running it into the ground.
