Hey guys, are there any differences between the 2008 and 2009 535xi? Other than the updated idrive buttons?

2009's have slightly different wheels and the X-drive emblems on the front fenders. Back only says 535I. Everything else is the same.

Cool thanks for the reply. So price difference isn't really worth it then.

2009 will be in warranty longer of course ( depending on miles)

True, but have you and or anyone you know took advantage of the warranty? I think with my regular use I will have to change normal wear and tear stuff that are not covered by warranty, know what I mean?

So what is the price difference where you are at and what is the mileage you are seeing with both.

I have to use warranty many times. These cars don't break often but when they do the repairs can be very expensive.
I don't advise owning a BMW without warranty.

Found up to 5k difference. But change of plans. I Think I'm going for 2010 535 xdrive instead. So far what I am finding in Canada is around $43000 for 50000 Kms

Yeah I guess. I was just trying to find the cheapest choice now but I'm sure it will cost later.
