I hate selling a car. It takes too much time and requires accommodating potential buyers' need to test drive.

So whenever I sell a car (not on a trade in), I list it rock bottom to sell it quickly, usually within a few days of listing it and usually to the first person to test drive it.

However, this time I took a different route. I simply found the co-worker with the oldest BMW and offered him my 2008 535xi at mid private party blue book (he currently drives a 1997 3 series with 160K+ miles on it).

He bit. He already has financing lined up and ready for the car when my ordered 550 arrives.

This was the easiest sale I've had.

Current: 2015 i3 REx | Giga | Ionic Silver Metallic
2013 550i xDrive M Sport DHP | Jet Black | Venetian Beige | Dark Red Sycamore
2008 535xi Sport | Jet Black | Cream Beige | Burl Wood
