Shanghai is a city with a current population of 22315474 inhabitants. However, it is hard to find more than a handful BMW 325d on the used car market . Hence, the supply is little and the demand depends on various of factors such as season, fuel mileage, and brand competetivness.

After 3 years, the car usually goes for only 61% of its initial asking price ($26,469) while it will only be valued at 32% of the MSRP after 7 years ($12,201). The 325d's value after twelve years is only 13% of its original price depending on its condition of course.
