  • Current Price - The average or median listing price of a used model of that year grouped by the same trim levels.
  • Maintenance - Estimated maintenance and repair costs during that year of ownership.
  • $ Decline - Year over Year price decline.
  • % Decline - Year over Year percentage of decline.
  • % Paid - Percentage paid of the original price.
  • % Left - Percentage left of reliable years of the vehicle.
  • Years Left - Current industry average of years remaining with predictable maintenance and repair costs.
  • Net Used Value ® - Our ranking & sorting index to help you find the model years with the most value.

The 2015, 2016 & 2017 BMW 3 Series model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 43% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2015 3 Series. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 23.48 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2017 3 Series model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
