    @sb55 - which engine?

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,613

    @shifty - how many miles? The most recent comp I have is from May in the DC area. It had 128k miles and got $3600. Home run on that one? $7500. Fair? $6k-6500.

    @nyccarguy - that's a sedan, right? Miles are a tad on the high side. Probably about $18k. Assuming the TSX is a 4-cyl ... wow, that's way up on the miles beyond anything at the block by a wide margin ... maybe $10k?

    @gbrozen@--ah, geniuses think alike. That's about what I told the guy---an "average" clean driver in the mid $3Ks, and a 400 foot shot over the wall about $6K-$7K. Someone told him $10,000, and someone else told him it was a "very rare car" and worth $24,000. That was the point where I held up my hand and said: "You need professional help with this".

    Roadburner tells me (in another topic) that the Impreza 2.5RS was Subaru's lame excuse for the WRX that they hadn't brought over to the US yet.

    the problem seems to be that there are a lot of heavily modified 2.5RS out there, and so it seems like they are worth a lot, but that's because they've had thousands and thousands of dollars in mods--turbo engine, body panels, different suspension, roll cages, blah blah. Apparently the RS chassis is lighter than the WRX, so you can build yourself a pseudo-STi.

    Nonetheless, the insurance company is low-balling him regardless.

    @qbrozen

    Yes, it is my sedan (current ride). I'll check what BMW set it's residual at later on. I think it is in the $26K neighborhood.

    Yes, the TSX is a 4 cyl. It is what I would still have (paid off) if I hadn't leased the BMW:)

    only 22k? geesh. Why bother with a new one? well, anyhoo... miles are lower than any others. Gotta hit it at $23k minimum, I'd think. Assuming, of course, it has had no paintwork and looks/drives like new.

    Hi qbrozen. The 2011 XC90 did not work out, really not in good shape.
    Would appreciate help on this other option to know what the value is wholesale. It is 2010 Volvo XC90 V8 AWD, Multi Media Package, BLIS, Oyster Silver Louisiana and has 50,000 miles.
    Thanks!

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,613

    hmmm... there was a silver one that sold in PA back in June with 49k on it. Brought $24k. Another silver in July at Nashville with 60k on it for $23,500.

    So, let's assume they have ... maybe $25k in it tops? If this is a Volvo dealer, I'll guess they are asking $29k and should be more than happy at $27,500. If a non-Volvo dealer, I'd probably be trying to get it for $1k less than that.

    I am getting a 2013 BMW 528i X Drive with 37000 miles on it for 32K. In service date for this car was 12/26/2012, to its about 1 yr 9 months old car. It is all serviced and inspected yesterday at a local BMW Dealer in NJ. It is a not a CPO. Will need new tires and alignment. Other than that its all fine. I reached out to the dealer who originally sold this car but he won't give me copy of all features/options car had while it was sold. From what he read me on the phone, this car doesn't have any package offered by BMW, but has front heated seat, navigation system and Black Dakota leather trim. I believe the navigation and blank dakota leather were the option that came with a price.

    I want to know if this is a good price I am getting the car for.

  • nyccarguynyccarguy Stamford, CTPosts: 7,906

    Ok. First off, why isn't it CPO? Second, if you have the VIN, there is a BMW VIN decoder out there (google it) and you'll find out exactly what options are on it.

    It is not CPO because, if I am reading between the lines properly it isn't being purchased from a BMW dealer, but from another used car dealer.

    If you have driven the car, how do you not know what it has? Also, why can't the dealer who serviced it tell you about it?

    These are all going for right around that $29k mark at auction. And if this happens to be a white one they picked up at the PA auction on 8/21, then they paid $29,250 plus fees and costs. So, yes, the price is fair, although I'd have a personal problem with it needing tires and an alignment and I would be deducting for that.

    @nyccarguy‌ I am buying it from a person who buys from auction or bank and sells to a dealer. It has been all inspected and serviced at Bloomfield BMW yesterday and I did get the report of all work done. I drove the car and it drove really nice. VIN check came out squeaky clean. And yes I did google VIN decoder and one of the site gave me enought information I needed. Thank you for suggestinkg that.

    @qbrozen‌ I understand the tires are not new, but I checked few dealer for the price of similar car and identical options, and they sell for about 35K and higher. So I figured 32K+1k in tires and alignment is better than $35K at the dealer.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,613

    they sell for about 35K and higher

    No offense, but how would you know what they sell for? you mean they are ASKING that much. Asking and selling are very different.

    I'm thinking about pulling a @breld (no offense breld!), what could I get out of my Fusion Energi for? Perfect storm of our perfect house becoming available, the honeymoon being over with the Fusion (let's be honest I WANT a Tesla, and this was a compromise, a BIG one) and driving way more than expected. :)

    2014 Accident Damaged S4 with 8,500 miles quoted $37K at Car Max and they said they'd wholesale it. My gut tells me they'd sell it at $47K on their lot. Chances I'm right? One Audi dealer told me to take the $37K from them, their offer would be lots lower.

  • amarmistryNJamarmistryNJ New JerseyPosts: 12

    @qbrozen‌ I am sure they sell for around 34K since its only a year old model. Just now I checked TrueCar, Edmunds and KBB and about 34K seems to be a fair price.

    Hell, I just did that 2 nights ago. Showed the salesperson the TrueCar price on my phone. He was surprised.

    I really don't have much to go on. Here is what I'm seeing.

    09/02/14 SEATTLE Factory $29,500 10 Avg GREY 4H A No
    04/09/14 DETROIT Factory $25,400 15 Avg BLACK EL A No
    07/31/14 SO CAL Lease $29,200 9,253 Avg BLUE 4H A No
    08/07/14 SO CAL Lease $25,000 25,156 Avg BLACK 4H A No

    So 2 at $25k and 2 at $29k. I just don't know why or what it means for you. I would imagine the 15 mile example for $25k is the oddball here. The other $25k being because of the far higher miles. So I'd have to take a stab at $29k for yours. Maybe $28k.

    That's a Prestige, right? Man, that's a huge hit. It would be $47k wholesale for a clean one.

    Thanks, even though Ford gave over $5,000 in lease cash the hit is too big. I can live with it for another 20 months rather than taking the hit.

    Although at the end of the day, I'll pay more over the next 20 months than I'd lose....talk me out of it. :)

  • amarmistryNJamarmistryNJ New JerseyPosts: 12

    @qbrozen said: yeah, what do I know. You probably do know more than I do. Hope I am getting a good deal.

  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,613

    It is a fair enough price. An alignment so soon is a bit worrisome to me, though. Would make me wonder why it is out of alignment. I'd also opt for much cheaper (read: non-runflat) tires. I'd want at least another $500 off, but that's just me. Compared to 95% of the buying public, you are getting a decent deal as is.

    But you are getting use out of the car over the next 20 months.

    What is the buyout?
