"New" 2011 328i xDrive Sedan SULEV South Africa - WHY?
So I'm on the hunt to upgrade from my E46 and I would like to go x-drive this time around to avoid the winter tread shuffle. I was presented with the option of buying some new old stock inventory. A local dealer has a few 2011 328s that he said have the full warrantee etc etc. I did some gogling of the stock numbers and found them on his site, though it is interesting that I can't seem to navigate to them normally. Only googling in the "back door" so to speak.
Anyways, they are marked as SULEV South Africa. They are priced pretty good ($6700 off MSRP) albeit I realize that they are a few model years out of date. What does attract me a bit is that they are the i6 cyl in a 328. On the F30, I'd need to go 335 as I do not like the 4cyl.
I've seen some threads that are older about the SULEV South Africa. But nothing recent. Any idea why these would be in his inventory? Should I snap it up, or avoid like the plague. In a perfect world they'd be manual trannys, but beggars can't be choosers.
ETA that they have these on their "ghost list". Not sure what that means...
