Sounds a bit high. My mom got an 08 328i with 22k miles for $24,000 several months ago. I would negotiate them down to at least 28, IMHO. :dunno:

My only problem with the new 5 is it's too tall / big. Love the styling but it would be nice if it was about 4 inches shorter height-wise and 4 inches shorter lengthwise.
