Buying a used 5 Series



  • I am in Houston, TX and am looking to pick up a CPO 2008 535i. I have driven a vehicle with the following spec; 36,300 miles, Premium, Sport, Cold Weather, Nav and Logic 7 sound system. Asking prices is $35,991 which seems to be a little higher than the guide prices that I find online.

    I's appreciate any comments or feedback on pricing of the vehicle and what I should expect to be paying.

    I am looking at 03 525i Florida dealer asking $11,550.00 has 74,000 miles. I am replacing my 95 jag that has 50,000 miles. Had a new transmission and the car has run right since at a cost of $4,000. Has been at repair shop 12 weeks that can not tell me what is wrong. I see legal action coming. Will I be happy with 525?is the price right Thanks
  • I am working with a dealer in Pittsburgh, PA on a used 2012 528i xDrive with the following:

    17,500 miles
    Premium Package
    Cold Weather Package
    Technology Package

    After some initial discussions, he is quoting me at $45,850 (not including tax and reg). I am thinking there is still some room for him to go down, but wanted to see if anyone had an idea if this price is in the ballpark of a fair deal.

    Hello All,

    My first post on the forums and would like to get educated here from fellow buyers..
    I am planning to buy a 2007 BMW 530xi black w/black interior (67000 miles) used from a private party. It has no warranty remaining. Service records upto date, however most of the maintainance was done with a Euro mechanic and not at BMW dealer..The owner still owes money to BMW finance..asking price is $17000.00

    Is this worth taking the risk, knowing no warranty available. Any potential issues to keep in mind..transmission failures etc at this age...

    Please suggest..
