    Looking at a 2009 328xi automatic black/black sedan with 36k miles for ~$25k (not including tax). Clean carfax, 1 owner, had maintenance at 20k miles and 35k miles. Hesitant cuz of the mileage - thoughts? Anything I should look for specifically when I check it out? TIA.

    p.s. - Carfax shows floor mats were installed twice at the beginning of the life of the car for some reason. Non-CPO cuz it's at a VW dealer (was previously leased from BMW, then a trade-in to VW). Brakes and tires are original.

    Forgot to mention, the car has a cold weather package and some components of the premium, and xenon.

    Just got 2008 528i CPO with 31K on it, the car got extend warranty until 2013 and now being offered Extended maintenance program until 2013 ( 2 years ) for $1950 ( discounted from $2300), the program will cover everything except the Entrainment system and NAV. The Dealer Service Person recommended as none of the brakes were replaced and he told me a it would cost$1800 beside all Oils, belts and normal services , etc.. , I am planning to drive a 25K a year on this car, any advice if his numbers are correct?

    Sounds high. I'm guessing it doesn't cover oil changes or regulalry scheduled services.

    Ok let's say that you need one set of brake pads for four tires. Find out ho much that would be with parts and labor by calling the Service dept. I would also check what the regularly scheduled service intervals say for replacement if certain parts. Otherwise you are laying 2K fir the security of knowing most things would be covered if hey break.

    Hi. I appreciate any help. Looking to get this car as soon as possible, based on some help on the below.

    I am looking to lease a new 335i convertible. Estimated msrp of $62,000. What are the numbers like? I am looking for automatic, 34 months, 10,000 miles yearly. Looking to know best lease prices. What is the residual value on the car and what is the money factor? And what is a good deal for this car based on the msrp. I don't know how far to push the dealer. Can it go lower than invoice price? Is it 8% off msrp, 10%, 12 %? Thanks again

    it does cover oil changes or regulalry scheduled services which is per the service dept $180 per time, the break around $1800.
    it covers all parts and labor but the NAV and CD player.

    so he basicslly was saying i would break even after doing both(brakes + 1 service )
    is it true the brakes cost that much?

    That would be a great price, I believe it is below dealer cost, let me know if you get that deal. I would think 44,700-45,000

    Wow, my dealer(Swope BMW, Louisville KY) charges less than $110 for an Oil Service on my wife's X3, and a four wheel brake job was less than $1000.

    Just got this car over the weekend 5 hours away from home in Utah. I live in Idaho, been shopping for about a month all over the northwest for our first entry level luxury and stumbled upon a white 2007 328xi with 45k miles with a bit warranty left on it on Pretty much stock 328xi from lease return with premium package, ipod+usb and that's about it. I think I made a great deal. About $23K out the door at BMW of Murray since I didn't have to pay tax because i'll be bringing the car back to Idaho, about $1.5K on tax so roughly around $24.5K for everything. I saved about $3k if I were to buy it in Idaho, Boise to be exact. Spent about $150 for one way airline ticket and $60 gas to fill up the tank from Utah to home is still a great savings for us. We were happy with the purchase, and wife happy. Coming from 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS with 140k miles to this sweet used bimmer is something I'm grateful of. It's just WOW, BMW rocks ... and so does BMW of Murray with smooth buying experience.

    What do you think guys?

    If you like the car then YES, it's a great deal. I live in Idaho and about $34.9K before everything added (tax, doc fee, etc.) in here for something like that. As long as the carfax checks in, no accident or anything, not California car and YOU'D LOOK COOL IN IT, heck yeah it's a great deal! It's just California people dont take care their car and they drive like maniacs. If you can avoid that at all.

    I leased a 2011 BMW 328i xdrive coupe, Alpine with saddle brown leather inside, steptronic no navigation. My annual mileage limit is 12k miles. My monthly payments inc tax are $585, I live in NJ. I put down $5000 but I traded in 2007 VW Jetta with 61k miles on it, on which I still owed over $12000. So my entire down payment was applied towards the "negative equity" on the Jetta.
  • Was looking to buy a new BMW 3 series, hopefully the 335i if things go my way.

    Now every car in the world has its problems, apart from randomly hitting trees.
    Just wanted to know from an honest non bias point of view, what problems can I expect with the new BMW 3 Series?

    I am looking at 2008 335i as well with 28500 miles on it. Can you tell me what options does your car have?

    The one I am looking at has everything except Nav.

    Dealer is asking for 32K
