How to buy a car that will loose 50% of its value in one year.


Lose, surely?

My old man bought a 190E 2.3-16 new in 1986. It's outlasted him and now I'm driving it Not a bad investment really...

As above,the interiors are having an overhaul so although it’ll be a new Mercedes in a few months it will be the “old” interior.......
Hot. On the linked page, some other variants listed too. Nice one.
Caravan site blue? One of my favourites, up there with Skeggy silver and poo brown.

i.e. Just buy any Brand new car...

A lot of people still want a new car despite this, after all this will only affect people who buy a new car every single year.

Yet oddly the new W177 model looks v similar to this W176 and heard the Renault co-developed 1.33 engine is masked as an A200.

Yes, and 20% of this will be lost in the first minute of ownership - the vat. I don't buy new cars myself, but I can see that it makes good sense of you are going to keep it for a long time.
Mercedes seem to do 20%-30% discount on cars all the time which makes me wonder if they are the same quality as in the past.

Well you are getting 23-25% discount on this model so you have negated that loss before you have even driven it.

So that 50% loss is now only 25% loss in the first year - better than a lot of things people buy year after year without thinking such as phones, TV's, laptops, tablets, washing machines etc etc.
Keep the car 10 years and it's cost you less than 2 grand a year. And imo the first 6-8 years any repair bills should be minor, such as tyres, brakes. So all in a relatively inexpensive cost over the 10 years

Personally I buy things to use,not to sell on again ASAP.

Not sure why people are so hung up on what it will be worth in X amount of time.If it's something you like then you won't really care what you might get for it in the future.

25% of £19K is over £4K though. Slightly more than I even spent on those other items.
shame you can't see photos of the car

So? It is all relative?
Some people buy phones every couple of months, along with all sorts of other gadgets. I have spent £4k in the last 6 months on gadgets for myself....such as TV, laptop, phone, amp, monitors, speakers etc.

Its a sore one if you don't have Gap Insurance and have a total right off of the car.
Caravansite blue? Sounds a bit pikey

Okay , not the type of car I'd be buying, but if you can find me a one year old one of these, I'll have it, actually I'll have 10 of them!

Agree that by the time it's three years old it might only be worth £10k, but £3k a year depreciation is not that bad - as I say, not a car for me, but I'd rather this than a Golf.

Personally, thats exactly what I look at when buying a car - how much will it lose, along with other factors. I change my car every year, sometimes an easy twice a year so actually the future value to me is important.
In fact I looked at one of these at the weekend, then heard of the new one so I held off. The new one has a much nicer 'modern' interior and better reviews, but again for me personally it will retain more of its value than buying an old model. Just my opinion based on my expensive hobby! Learning now that pre-registered or ex demo is the way to go

Pre reg and ex demo are often more expensive than drive the deal prices. In fact the last 3 cars I have bought have been.

Why not just not buy a car at all and that way you won't lose any money


Bit of a strange hobby buying run of the mill cars and selling them again in 6-12 months,could understand it if the cars were something special that go up in value or hold solid.

Each to their own I suppose.

My last car was a BMW, that was £46k new but pre regsitered cost me £33k. Sold it 4 weeks later for £28k - dont ask! The point was that pre-registered worked out cheaper than rental or drivethedeal.
Really I need to focus on cars a year old, so hard when all these new models coming to market soon......... must resist!!

The Good old days - they are crap quality now in comparison to 70's-80's cars.

Its usually buses that hold me up, pulling out at junctions and islands and blocking the roads where some suit in an office thought it would be a good place to put a bus stop.
I had the original one in 2013 when it came out. AMG full spec with (very important) the more powerful 1.8 Mercedes engine inside.

All the newer ones after that had the Renault engine. Still a ok engine mind, but if you want to buy a cheaper car, buy a Renault which has the same engine inside. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable paying Mercedes prices for a french engined car.

Agree with you! So does the Mrs!
Don't know why I do it, just get bored - slowly getting better and looking slightly older..... my original point was however to Biggunspaul that some people do look at the resale value, although they make a good point also, its just not always that clear cut as we have our own reasons.
