imo you shoud be between trade and porivate party. "retail' is a scam to support car dealers.

take original invoice price, subtract all incentives, then add 500- that is what the car cost someone in 2012. Now subtract $12k-15k.

Does it have a cpo.100k extended warrnaty?

You should get a PPI too.

OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"

OEM is NOT WHAT YOU BUY AT THE DEALER.
