    how many miles do you have on your early production E46 330i?

    2001 Prelude Type SH, 2015 Infiniti Q40 AWD, 2017 Honda Pilot Touring AWD

    Just over 36K. I don't drive it during the winter (I also have a Honda CR-V) & I use public transportation for my daily commute.

    FYI: although 2001 was the 1st year for the 330i, which replaced the 328i as the top of the line non-M 3-series, it was the 3rd year for the E46.

    I'm looking to purchase a CPO 328i. I am considering 2 options.

    1. 2007 328i with premium pkg, 18k miles, ~ $26k.
    2. 2009 328i base model, 7k miles, ~ $29.5k.

    I have driven the 2007 and like it, but it only has about 9 months of free maint, and 2yrs 9 months of warranty remaining. Meanwhile, the 2009 looks interesting, because it has 3 yrs of free maint, and 5 yrs of warranty remaining.

    Question - does $29.5k seem reasonable for a base model 2009 328i (only option on it is a smokers pkg, and I don't smoke!).

    I could probably do without the pwr seats and leather, but I liked the lumbar support on the 07. Does the manual seat on the 09 have any lumbar support? How is the standard leatherette, compared to the Dakota leather?

    Also, the 2009 is a SULEV S. Africa. What does this mean?

    hi prvenk24,
    I think you should go w option2. std leather and dakota doesnt make a whole lot of diff. end of the day what ppl look at is r u driving a BMW. Don't worry abt the premium package in 07. What you want is peace of mind and warranty. I suggest go for a xi if u can but 29.5 K is not a bad deal. My frnd got a 328xi - 2010 base model for 36K in NJ
    Good luck and njoy yr drive

    I think you should get a new 2010 328i. most people are able to get 3000-3500 off invoice, and with that, you should pay less than 29500 for a new 328i.

    Hi there,

    I live in Los Angeles, thinking about buying a 328 convertible soon. What is the price for 2010 model these days? Can someone recommend a dealer?

    Thanks. From reading the posts here, I figured a new one should be in the range of 29500, maybe a little more.

    new 328i for 29,500...does it include the premium package ?
  • tumdtumd Posts: 7
    I am talking about any particular car. I think most people are getting 3000-3500 off invoice. So a new 328i costing about 35000 can be purchased for about 29.5k, if you shop around and negotiate. I found that it is easiest to email directly with Internet salesman, and not talk on phone with them until deals is almost finalized.

    I found 2008 25k miles 328i conv with premium, sport, nav.keyless entry, cold package. What should I start offer offer from 40k asking price?
  • tumdtumd Posts: 7
    I would look up CPO price on with all the options on the car, then offer 2000 below that see if they will sell it for you. Don't know if that's the going rate, but doesn't hurt to start low. Also negotiate over email first so they can't pressure you.
  • tumdtumd Posts: 7
    I got the best, no going back and forth offer from Valencia BMW, but ended up buying in Camarillo because it is closer to me( they matched the offer). I think they have the best deals.

    36000 otd...

    half month ago a car is 40750
    they offer me 37500 otd
  • Hey all,

    Is there good eveidence for trunk cash available currently? Beyond the $2500 available as a rebate currently? My dealer was dumbfounded when I offered $5000 below invoice on a 2010 328xi... Is he just not being honest on potential trunk cash available??? Thanks in advance!
  • tumdtumd Posts: 7
    Hi Marine50505,
    didn't know how to get back to you. In addition to 2500, there is at least another 1000 available that's not advertised, as some have already posted. I had one dealer offer me 3700 off invoice on a 2010 335i, and another 4000 off with some negotiations. I am sure they have some other incentives, and are making some money off the deals. I would try several dealers and only talk/email their internet sales guys/managers. good luck.

    Hello, I went by the dealership today in SoCal, and they have a deal for a:

    - white 2010 328i w basic package that they've used as a loaner, with 3890 miles on it
    - OTD 30,180, with 1.9% APR (I had a lease with them for a new car that I am turning in), which comes out to $3000 down and $475/month over 60 months.
    - It includes 3.5 years of maintenance.

    The car had a small dent in the back and some scratches that they will fix before selling. It's basically like buying a slightly used car.

    Do you think this is a good deal?

    Thanks, I'd appreciate any feedback.

ALL replies welcomed. thank you in advance!
  • lapcclapcc Posts: 3
    Hi drmhf, Is it $36,000 OTD? what is the MRSP?
  • lapcclapcc Posts: 3
    Thanks chaolanren, I heard my friend said he has a friend got 328i with premium package around 34,000 OTD last year. I don't know if it is possible I can get it around 32,000, since the 2011 is out.

    Got it last weekend. 2010 328 premium MSRP 38600, price 32161 (invoice + maco - 4000). Invoice 35690, maco 580.

    MF: 0.0019 (loyalty program), and I pay 7 * 450 security deposit to reduce it, but
    don't remember the final MF.

    Cap cost, 32161 + 925 (acquisition fee, dealer mark up, not able to reduce) + doc fee = 33131. 12000miles/year. Monthly payment 390 + tax.
    DMV license 456.

    Total out of pocket to drive off car, 456 + 390 + tax + 3150 (security deposit).
  • petexiaopetexiao Posts: 8
    Correct on MF.

    0.0019 is the regular MF. 0.0014 is the MF through loyalty program. Mine is
    0.0014 - 7*0.00007 = 0.00091
  • drmhfdrmhf Posts: 29
    MSRP is $41,465. 36,000 included everything except tax, license plates, registration, and a $75 document fee which the dealer claims doesn't even cover their cost for processing the paperwork-going to dmv, getting plates, etc.

    Do you mind where you bought it? It is in North East. I am in Boston and looking for one.

    I highly recommend BMW of Sudbury in Sudbury, MA. Seek out the General Manager, a Greek name. Ask him who helped Jon W buy a 2011 Tasman Green Metallic 335i xDrive. Between the GM and the particular sales person whom I'm not allowed to name, I am confident you will be happy.

    I am absolutely delighted with my new car.

  • drmhfdrmhf Posts: 29
    I bought it at Hassel BMW in Freeport on Long Island. The salesman was very easy to deal with, no pressure and no deposit. Called me when the car was in and I bought it for the price we had agreed on.- His first name is Renny. Tell him you want a similar deal to mine. It's a really nice car.

    I am also looking for a 2010 328xi. What is the Residual Valu you guys are getting for a 36month, 15kmiles lease. Surprisingly enough I am gettin conflicting values ranging from 52% to 60%. Could someone also also help with the money factor?
