The vehicle was a 2010 ...

It said leather, and seemed like leather ... But seemed soft. I had a hunch it was maybe sport package because the driver seat seemed more bucketed than I recall ... Felt nice to sit in. ...

Need some advice ...

I've been looking for a BMW now for about three months (every few weeks or so ... I'm not really in a rush).

Anyway, have test-driven a 325i (PPI was not good so I walked), a 2011 328i (fine, but...

Does a PPI request hurt bargaining power

I've been looking for a 2006 325i or a 2011 328i. I got a PPI on the former, and made an offer (somewhat lowball, but not ridiculous) on the latter. After the PPI on the 325i, I backed away. The...

Interesting thing is that it had two owners. First was a lease who turned it in a month before it was due with 25k. He had it in for service, according to Carfax, once a year. Next owner had it from...

It's an e90. Good advice on all. I have a PPI scheduled for tomorrow morning. Price is high, and I'll do my best to get the best price. I agree on maintenance. My current car is a 1999 CR-V with 206K...

I've pretty much settled on buying a 328i ... either a 2010 or 2011. However, my favorite is a 325i. I have seen a few on the road, including one a neighbor owns. My question: How reliable would a...

on the 320i, but given the difficulty in securing, and listening to you guys, back on the 2011 328i hunt ... Have a week off in a couple of weeks. Ready to test drive!

The "only in SoCal" reference was tied to new 320i. Plenty of 328i CPOs. Tough to tell them apart.

I wish. I did a search, and saw only one in SoCal. I think if I were to get one, I'd have to wait three or four months.

Thanks. Also now pondering just a new 320i. I do like a smaller vehicle. I liken it to being the Civics of BMW. I'll keep in mind your thoughts on the 2011.

I guess budgeting an extra 2k a year would beg the question: why not just take that money, divide by 12 and add to payment of a new one. Thoughts?
