Disco prices don't drop

Why are two-year-old Discovery 4 HSEs selling for around 47k when as new they are 54k?

Surely they should be dropping much more than this? Are the dealers trying to artificially keep up prices? I would expect a 3 year old Discovery 4 to be worth 50% of new value.

When word gets around that replacing turbos on the 3.0V6 diesel is a body off job I don't think the public will be so keen, especially once Disco 4s come out of warranty.
