Are you looking to buy (or sell) a BMW 325i in Johannesburg? Vehiclus surveyed the local used automotive market of all metropolitan areas in South Africa to determine a pricing profile of various BMW models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. To maximize your earnings when selling your 325i (or to be sure to not be overcharged when buying a BMW 325i) it is highly recommended to know most value-determining variables.
Johannesburg is a city with currently 2026469 inhabitants. However, it is hard to find more than five BMW 325i on the used car market . Therefore, the supply is little and the demand depends on various of parameters for example maintenance costs, fuel mileage, and reliability.
As described in the figure below, cars of the car manufacturer BMW and especially of the model 325i loose their value in a very normal manner. The average price of the 325i will be lowered by 13% ($30,862) after only 1 year. After 3 years, the car typically costs only 61% of its original selling price ($23,087) while it will only be priced at 30% of the MSRP after 7 years ($9,829). The 325i's value after 12 years is only 12% of its original price depending on its condition of course.
One more way to quantify vehicle depreciation is to study the decrease of value vs miles driven. The BMW 325i depreciation curve below describes this phenomenon for the city of Johannesburg. The 325i looses most of its value (~ 47%) within the first 30,000km of its mileage. The typical price for a 325i at that mileage is $19,809. After that the depreciation plateaus: at 90,000km the BMW 325i is valued for $12,391 in Johannesburg and for $5,550 at 180k kilometers .
The last factor that significantly determines the price of a second-hand car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below lists the deflation of a BMW 325i according to its year and its condition.
