Should I Buy Used or New Luxury Cars?
Consumers always have choices. We all have choices. In buying houses, we have choices. That is also true when we buy cars.
Of course, there is always the option to buy an old house if you prefer some retro appeal in your house or the old classic ancestral places. There is the good ol’ smell of your childhood that brings memories back. When it comes to cars, there is also the option to buy second hand luxury cars, particularly from RDM Luxury Imports.
There is a fairly good reason why some people opt for brand new luxury cars and a good number of people also have their own reason why they would rather go for “pre-loved” luxury cars. Let’s try to weigh things here:
1. Depreciation Value. We’re all familiar with the old adage that states that a car whose wheel turned a full 360 degrees out of the shop has already depreciated a good one grand.

Luxury Cars With Convertible Tops – The Best of Both Worlds
For years, a convertible roof was a feature only offered with sports cars or muscle cars. Ford Mustangs, Chevy Camaros, and other similar vehicles would always come with a convertible option, giving their drivers a unique top down, wind in the hair experience. These convertibles offered a feeling of freedom that most drivers could only envy. However, for those drivers who preferred luxury automobiles, there were other restrictions to worry about. Most luxury vehicles were designed to offer a smooth, comfortable driving experience, not a fast, sporty one. With the exception of Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini, which always had a focus on combining speed with high end amenities, other luxury automotive companies couldn’t provide a similar exhilarating driving experience. When the manufacturer saw a demand for a car that combined sportiness and classic luxury, a new option arose: the luxury convertible car.
This car changed the expectations that customers had for their high-end vehicles. Auto makers such as BMW and Audi were now able to offer a sportier car, with a convertible top, that didn’t only focus on the driver. High-end sports cars are two seat speedsters, and are …
German Luxury Brands Going After Green Market
The German luxury trio of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi are all locked in a close battle for the title of the world’s most popular automaker. According to sales figures from the first half of 2010, BMW is currently in first place, although its lead over its two rivals is marginal. At under 2,000 vehicles, Mercedes’ lead over third-place Audi is even slimmer, although that number may have grown in recent months thanks to strong sales for Mercedes in the U.S.Regardless, all three German luxury brands are racing for the top spot. To accomplish this, they’re going after smaller market segments. According to the Automotive News, the next segment that the brands are looking to cater to is the “green,” or environmentally conscious, car owner.
Mercedes recently announced that it will debut a four-cylinder engine on its top-of-the-line S-Class model. The S250 CDI is expected to be available on several models in early 2011. Four-cylinders are uncommon options for luxury vehicles, with drivers typically wanting the performance of a six- or eight-cylinder. Yet Mercedes says that thanks to turbocharging technology, the engine delivers the torque of a six-cylinder with the low emissions and fuel …
