2020 530i Military Price

Looking for some opinions about the below pricing that is being offered to Active Duty Military serving in Germany. Also a follow-up question…is there a general rule of thumb people use to determine the residual value after say 2 years? Is 70% - 75% a safe assumption? My thinking is to purchase this vehicle at this already low price and then potentially sell or trade it in for close to the purchase price when I will have to move again in 2 years.

Military Sales Promotion: $46900

What .. no Oil Slick, or Front Fender Machine Gun options? .. hmm, the Germans have lost their way.

Seriously though - any time you can get mid 20% discounts you can't complain I think.

doubt you'd be able to sell it at your purchase price in 2 years, unless you only put on very low miles (<10K). Check used prices of 2017 530s...

If you can get a similar discount on a 2yr lease, might be the way to go

Used 2017 530is currently are in the $30K-$40K range, depending on mileage, options and overall condition. This is why I bought mine CPO in early 2018, 9 months old with full warranties and a nearly 25% discount from original sticker which meant I skipped the first year depreciation.
2017 BMW 530i, Sport Line,Alpine White, Canberra Beige Sensatec, 19 inch V-Spoke wheels, basic plain Jane build with no options whatsoever..... "Less is more".

Before: 2011 BMW 328i E90 sedan, Platinum Bronze Metallic, Dakota Brown leather, 17 inch wheels, 6-speed auto, N52 6 Cyl inline N/A goodness....
