  • Taxes in Maryland are based on cap cost, not leased cost. 6% on $48100 where as other states would pay tax on 42% of the that value (100% - 58% residual)

    Plug a maryland zip code into the edmunds lease calculator (20707) and you'll get the $699 number.

    I'm looking for an identical car. I have one in NY (LI) that the salesman just told me about, 2007 530i, NAV, Sports, Premium, Cold, Premium Sound, 30K miles, for me he's offering $35,250. Sounds like you're over paying for that one. I have another one, black with auburn interior that's for sale, 24K miles, 2007, 530i, sports, prem, cold they're asking $35K and change.

    I know a dealer in NJ that let one go just like the above with only 20K miles on it for low $30's. I'm still kicking myself.

    Good luck, let me know how you make out, CT here.

    Can you give us a link into that ebay CPO?

    I'm looking a 2007 530i, with sports.

    Thanks

    Guys,
    I need some guidance. I just saw a beautiful car, CPO at the dealer. Actually the car is listed on the website, but was not on the lot. So I spoke to the internet sales manager, and the car was still in the process of being certified, so he brought me to show the car to me. Here's details:
    2007 530XI
    SPORT, premium, cold, bluetooth
    Black Sapphire with Auburn
    Warranty: 4 year to FEB 2011, extended warranty to FEB 2013
    Mileage: 23K
    ASKING PRICE $35,659

    He is going to let me know when it's fully conditioned and let me drive it. I'm not sure about the all wheel drive. Is that good or not good? It has the usual 5 series rims, which I was disappointed because usually Sport pkg comes with sport rims. He explained why (something to do with all wheel drive, 18" wheels, etc). But the warranty is good, and the mileage is low. I just feel that price is a little on the high side.

    Any comments? I can't wait to drive it. It had one owner, the dealer leased it to him for 2 years. No incidents with the car at all.

    Nice car. Price is high.

    For example, I bought a 2007 550i loaded in late Jan. Same situation with 1 owner, 2 year lease. My car is loaded but with 35k miles. Asking $40k bought for $35k. $70k car new.

    Ask $30k. Imo
  • gardisgardis Posts: 185
    Thanks, good advice. Actually they had a 550i on the lot also, but too high powered for me. My problem is that since the car has just been received by the dealer, maybe they're not too anxious to make a deal with me. They might figure, let it sit there and see what happens? OTOH, I'm taking the car off their hands, decreases amount of carrying costs. I'm going to shoot for $33K see what happens. After all, the car has low mileage and the AWD makes it higher in price, that's just reality. I gotta tell you, that Auburn interior with the black is spectacular. I was hesitant about it, but when I saw the vehicle, very impressive combination. Don't see it too often.

    can you give me the dealer you got this deal from NJ as i am trying to get something similar.
  • gcmiamigcmiami Posts: 2
    Would be grateful for your input. I'm looking at a couple of 2007 525i CPO, both are basic. only option is steptronic auto trans.

    One dealer has 2007, 525i, 14k mi. list price was $34,500k, then he dropped to $30,900 pretty quick. black/black
    Another dealer, 2007, 525i, 22k mi, list price $31,995k, haven't furthered my discussion yet. gray/black.

    I still feel that these prices are high given the car is pretty much a base model. Your thoughts on an offer? I'm not trading-in or using their financing. This will be a straight forward deal.

    Also, what is the philosophy around the dealer fees?$495-$595.00 Has anyone had success if getting those waived.

    Thanks

    I have a 2007 525i coming off lease in a couple of months. It has NAV, SAT, Premium, auto, and USB. My residual is $31,412, and from what I've seen on the forums, I should be able to buy it from the dealer at a significant discount (like $27-28k). Based on that, you should be able to get these for about $30k. Mine is Black Saphire w/ Black Dakota leather. I have 40,000 miles on it if you're interested.
  • gcmiamigcmiami Posts: 2
    Thanks. $30k out the door, including tax, license etc)? or pretax?
  • gardisgardis Posts: 185
    I keep reading various posts about dealers telling buyers that the 5 series are "flying off the lots" and there's "very little inventory."

    YET -- I saw two 530xi, 2007 CPO vehicles, both with Sports, one a dealer here in CT, and another a dealer in LI (about 40 miles)...........all I did was EMAIL the internet service manager that I saw the cars in the website, and so far, I've gotten THREE calls from the Long Island dealer ("just following up with your request, if there are any questions, please call me, etc etc"), and Three calls from the CT dealer (I looked at that car and it's nice). If they have so many buyers, why are they bothering with me?

    My game is to not show I"m so anxious. Of course, having said that, I've lost two beautiful vehicles because I played chicken with the dealer too long. Go figure.

    What do you think about this price:

    2006 CPO 525i mid 30k miles, and the asking price is $25,900.

    What should I offer? The car is pretty basic, premium package.

    Also how reliable are these cars and is the 525 underpowered?

    Thanks.
  • ptchowptchow Posts: 14
    I do noticed that there are alot more 2006s vs 2007s. I think the main differences are the aux input and for NAVs, the later models come with real-time traffic information. Anything else?

    I definitely don't think they are "flying off the lots". Just like you, I'm trying to be patient and to find the car with the right combination of options at the right price.

    We are in the process of shopping for a a BMW 535i or a Jag XF SC. Does anyone out there have any buying experiences or tips for the BMW?

    I am especially interested in actual sales prices for the 535i?
  • nibsnibs Posts: 65
    Man you guys are so lucky south of the border (I'm in Canada). Obviously we don't have the number of cars available that you do and we pay a premium for the CPO vehicles with many more miles on them and at much higher prices. We even pay a premium if we came down to buy and bring one back. That 530XI is a nice car and the mileage is very low imo. Wish I had the opportunity but I bought an 06 530XIT. Lots of warranty left so I'm happy.

    Good luck.

    Hi - Can anyone tell me if a 2009 528xi offered for 48K with xenon lights, premium package, cold weather and Ipod is a good deal. I am in a 525i now and my lease is up soon. I am going to lease the 528xi over 36 months 10K miles, no money down. The MSRP I have been offered is 53,350 less 5,350 = 48K. Fees and first payment I have been offered are $1942 from Massachusetts. Monthly payment is $615. Any advice? Thanks

    I did left you a post in the Jaguar xf forum, but you never replied.

    Have you test driven the cars?
  • bmlexusbmlexus Posts: 755
    Some are saying the newly redesign 5 series will be available sometime this summer, and some are saying mid 2010.

    Anyone know for sure?
  • jvl1jvl1 Posts: 2
    I have not driven the 535 I am interested in the 528xi. Sorry
  • jagbuyerjagbuyer Posts: 4
    I have test driven both cars and both performe exceptionally well. Great handling and acceleration from both. I am really torn between the two. Most of all I like the styling of the Jag and dont see as many of them on the road as the BMW.
  • art234art234 Posts: 103
    My understanding is that the 2010 5 series will be the same as the current one with the exception of the new Idrive interface with hard drive (like the 3 has now). The redesign will be called a 2011 model and show up some time in 2010.

    This is from my dealer--and I am still debating whether to go BMW or Audi.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a deal for a brand new never titled 550i with an msrp of $65k for $44k. What do you think?
  • sb55sb55 On an Island in VermontPosts: 184
    Does it have 6 speed and the Sport Package? That'd be my choice.
    I'd say, Buy it.

    Thats what my dealer has been telling me, that the new redesign 5 will be available sometime in 2010, but some say this year :confuse:

    I see I am not the only 1 confused here, so you're thinking about going for the 5 seri or the Audi, which Audi? A6, I am torn apart between bmw and lexus :blush:

    I've recently read in the XF buying experience forum about someone having problems in his new car only after 500miles, and it wasn't easy to find the parts.

    What about the LS460? I know its bigger, but more space and comfortable.
  • gardisgardis Posts: 185
    BTW, what's the sales tax now up to in Canada? I can't imagine what it has to cost you for a vehicle up there. Good luck.
