The real value of the model is the enjoyment you get out of it right now.
The enjoyment is the reason to buy a car.
Any monetary value it has in the future is just a nice extra. :cheers

:mine I tend to agree....I buy cars becasue I like the models...besides to get any real value out of them you have to keep them in the original box....I do not know about anyone else I like to take them out, put them in cases and display them...

It will most likely hold its value, but definitely won't go up in price. On the other hand, models like the E46 M3 GTR (or the E36 M3 GTR) for that matter, do appreciate in price.

As long as you think it's worth the money and you really like the car, I think that's all that's matter. The possibility of appreciating in value is just a bonus.

I noticed that if you buy them in their basic original release color...
eg. titanium silver E46 M3 dealer edition they will usually appreciate in value.
but mostly dealer editions are kinda limited release so they will hold their value...but then again I don't really care if they do.
I buy them because I love collecting them :cheers

I most certainly agree with everything that has been posted, so not much to add there.

One question I would like to add in regards to some of the statements made. In this case of dealer editions, if the same model is mass produced and the availabilty is plenty, do you think that will affect pricing of dealer editions :feedback

I still have not fully accepted the dealer editions in my heart as of yet. With the only differences relating to colors, different packaging and dealer branding, it just hasn't hit home for me as of yet.
