What new-ish cars are you waiting for to depreciate?
We’re big fans of used cars here. Only problem is, if there is a new car that you covet now (though thankfully for us there aren’t many), it could take years – decades, even – before its value has plummeted far enough for you to snap it up. So on that note, what new-ish cars are you patiently waiting for to depreciate?
For us, one would have to be the Audi RS4 (B7) that was produced from 2006 to 2008 — a car that looks, sounds, and goes nearly as great today as when it first launched. Though plenty of cars vie for our attention (and our hypothetical dollars) all the time, the RS4 has somehow managed to hang on to a place at that ever-crowded table. We think it’d make a heck of a nice winter car someday :D And we love winter driving, so that’s not intended to be a backhanded compliment, either. This car on a set of Nokian Hakkapeliittas should make it fairly unstoppable in the snow or in an ice race around a frozen lake.
Our only lament (you know the one) is that we here in the US didn’t get the Avant, meaning we’ll need to settle for the sedan. Boo hoo.
