Looking on ebay, looks like dealers are asking about 65-75k on these. Looks like people, on ebay though, are willing to pay 50-60kish. One guy, if the auction is real and all other caveats, paid 67k for an M sport edition with all the fixins.

Don't know what the miles is on the one KoS bought, but I bet it was 65-70k if low mileage.

19k miles. I could have gone to Los Angeles area and gotten a better deal. In CA I think you have you pay tax on whole thing, not the difference. So 21k of trade gave me a value of 23k. Plus going there, getting it shipped, or additional city tax etc that I had to pay, I decided to get locally.

I think you did pretty good on your trade in. Are you saying you netted 23 because on trading in used and buying used your state only taxes you on the difference? In my state.....Kentucky this is the same situation but if I trade in and buy a new vehicle, they tax me on the entire price of the new vehicle.

Yes. I listed this car for 25k and didn't get many calls. I guess these cars are hard to sell privately. Particularly there is no sales tax in AZ for private purchases and still few calls only.

It's little different. Mine was E65. I also have these runflats. As soon as they wear out I'll replace those with regular. I think non runflats give better ride. There is no storage compartments in the car. Cannot even put my sunglasses with case anywhere.

Beautiful car man, I'm sure you're still ecstatic about the purchase :D

And you know, you can now instantly add over 100hp with just a tune from Dinan whenever you want :bigpimp:

100Hp gain with a Dinah tune? What does that actually require in terms of cash and mods? Really 100hp? I am dubious and curious!

Its just new software, remaps the engine. My friends 335 was remappd and I think he got like 50 to 70 more hp

Truth! My buddy in his 335i did the same. The power and ease of extracting more power from TT engines on display! :thumbup:

Who does this Dinah remapping/tuning/software? Not dealer methinks.

Seven11
06-15-2012, 03:26 PM
some BMW dealers are also Dinan dealers

and they can install the tune which is $3000, rip off for a tune

but they do honor the factory warranty with dinan stuff

I'm pricing all sorts of nice luxury cars 09 & 10 from Audi, Benz too. They have dropped like strippers on a pole.

How about the compartment on the left side near the steering wheel...I went looking the other day at an 09 and I asked the question about losing compartment space and he said there were some hidden throughout the car...He showed me a couple and that one seamed the right size for glasses...good luck and beautiful car....

FYI...By the way I drove my car right up next to the one I was looking at and it seams the new 750Li's are shorter than the previous generation. Curious???

Is it really short? The measurements are available. Let me check and see if F02 is shorter than E66
