Before you do anything else, has the subframe been checked?

This. And in a word, no I don't think $1000 on top is a reasonable request. The 323 is the lesser vehicle.

Yeah, I wouldn't do anything other than an even trade, if that. Your list of pluses mostly focuses on goodies. Sunroof? Cruise? They all have that. What about service history?

So you guys think it's not worth it?

I don't think I have enough information to give you an opinion. What kind of condition is your car in?

THIS ^

To me, service history is worth more than blingy **** that I can go get myself...

FredoinSF 10-03-2012 09:14 PM

Three unknowns:
1. what general condition is your 528?
2. Service history and recent work on the 323
3. Why are you looking to trade?

The picture of the 323 looks good, but unless the 528 has some big problem coming, I'd rather keep the 528 - particularly if you need to give up a good car plus cash for one with an unknown service history.

I think i would keep that 528, or even if both are in fine condition, surely wouldn't give any money in trade.

Without trade he is asking $6700 is it good price?

No dude. For 7000, I got a 325i with the sports and premium packages.

For $5700 I got a '01 325i with cold weather pkg and leather with 90k miles, plus brand new tires and great inside/outside condition. Only needed control arm bushings. BTW - thanks to the board for suggesting the Meyle HD CABs from oembimmerparts. My mechanic said they are the best he had seen.

IMHO, the engine in your 528 is better than the one in the 323. And I hate to see any BBS rims painted. They were gold back in the '70s and '80s; now everyone paints them black.
