It may be called the black book in Canada where the poster is from. Here is a link to black book values. Scroll down to the middle of the page.<BR> <A HREF="http://cartalk.cars.com/info/" TARGET=_blank>http://cartalk.cars.com/info/</A> <P>Rich S.<BR>97 BSR S3 850R,cold air kit,Ohlins strut bar, 325mm brakes, program switch, 15k hard miles @1.3 bar<p>[This message has been edited by Thor's Hammer (edited 02-22-2002).]

Actually, I believe there really is a black book....just another resource to make the value of cars more confusing. I think dealers and auction places use them. Check out <A HREF="http://www.cars.com" TARGET=_blank>www.cars.com</A> and find any used car and click on it and you'll see a link to get the Black Book Value.

Thats what I am finding is the most disappointing thing about owning these cars. The value drops very quickly on some models. A fully loaded 99 S80T6 which costs about 45K has a blue book value of about 25K. Thats very poor. I also have a 91 SE which has a blue book value of about 5K which is actually fairly good. But a 20k depreciation in 3 yrs on a 45k car is steep.

hey everyone,<P>thanks for all the info. there is a black book here in canada, EH! the dealers and brokers use it for trade-in values. <A HREF="http://www.toyota.ca...click" TARGET=_blank>www.toyota.ca...click</A> on "trade-in value" and you can get the $$ they use as a guideline. funny thing, when you compare the prices (apple to apple) taking the regions into consideration, the prices( taking the cdn/usd exchange rate) are quite different in some cases.<BR>great resources on this forum. thanks again!<BR>
