So true on Turbo S pricing.
Regular Cayenne Turbos nicely equipped go for between 125K and 160K.
You can add about 25K for the S variety.

2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbos typically sell between 70 and 80K. But they started out at least 20K higher than X5M at purchase. So Rez is right. It's the nature of niche expensive cars to drop in value...

Assuming the M3 was about 70 K, his 60K offer to you was actually closer to 65K considering tax savings....depending on where you live. I still understand your keeping it.
