BMW 5-series

If you're planning on ditching that brand-spanking new 2006 model you just bought, we hope for your sake that it's on the list of winners for Kelley Blue Book's 2006 Best Resale Value Award. KBB picks winners in nine vehicle categories as well as the top 10 overall vehicles with the best resale value. Unfortunately the site doesn't actually tell us what the projected resale value of the each winner is (they're contained in the company's Residual Value Guide), so there's no way to rank the top 10 except alphabetically). The winner of Best Resale Value: Brand is a tie between MINI and parent company BMW. There's a list of the winner's in each category and the top 10 after the jump.
