Another line of thought, that some may disagree with...
*Who buys a car with the resale/next owner in mind?*
I don*t *save* miles. My M4 had over 26K miles on it in ~18 months. I know guy that have had theirs longer and drive it on the weekends. For me, it doesn*t matter, I*m not buying a car to resell or keep in the garage.
Totally don't agree- for me (like most) cars are a need but in my case they're also a habit- an expensive habit so the more I can limit the outlay of said habit the better/less guilt I feel about feeding it. Buying a 60k M2 along side a new or maybe CPO (Rav or CX-5- for dd'ing) is what I'd want but I also don't want to get financially porked when I do eventually resell it as I tend not to keep much past the 5 year mark..read: expensive, habit...now having said that something more special like an M2 vs another car in that price range may hold up better in that regard but resale is a big part of this picture financially- if money matters to you and you don't keep your cars idk a decade or more I don't grasp how resale couldn't/wouldn't be considered on a purchase- I just don't.
