price better be very very good, since 2011 year doesnt have a good reputation for the new 5 series. Personality i never buy the first year of the new model, cause usually they fix a lot of things after first year model. Good luck.

I'm a little afraid of the first year model thing, but the 100K warranty helps with that.

Good luck with the car..I'am actually looking at the same type of car but 2012 model in Jet Black. They're going for 52-55k. Same coverage 6yrs, 100,000 miles. If I don't find my car, I'll just order a new one.

Michael Karesh's True Delta website shows the '11 F10 as being quite reliable. FWIW, mine has been flawless in 2yrs, 28k miles.

Yep...I agree. CPO seems to add about $3K-$4K. I'm assuming you also have new or nearly new tires with the CPO..I have to replace mine soon (with 25k miles). All together...I think we ended up pretty close to the same deal. So far I love also my first "ultimate driving machine". Just hoping I don't get killed not having the CPO.

I think this is somewhat subjective...if YOU we're comfortable and happy with the price you paid for the quality of the car you received; then it's a great deal. You'll hear stories here of who paid what in this state, or that state, or this dealer, or that dealer. In the end, we're all paying a lot of money BUT for a quality car. Don't get me wrong, I know there are some horrible "deals" out there with shady salesmen; but for the most part we all pay around generally the same. Just my opinion of course...congrats and have fun!

Absolutely not true!
You pay much, much, less than we do.

So that when others search they get all the details. Sharing helps keep everyone informed and helps the community.

When people use terms of Out the Door - no one really knows driver fees, doc fees, taxes, and add on etc.

Just my 2 cents.

I totally understand when people want to share a reference point, but not the "How did I do?" threads post-purchase.

I understand your point but here is the thing IMO - when purchasing used cars its tough to really have an idea of what a car should cost. So many conflicting pieces of information. Stuff like this helps those people that are searching to say - OK guy X paid Y for Z, I can compare that to my offer and know if a deal is in the same ball park or way higher.

I think its helpful although I do agree its better to ask before post and then an after post rather than just check with afterwards. Especially since the "after" comments the community almost never thinks its a good deal. Again - IMO.

You shouldn't. Its a sweet car and in the end their will always be a better deal. But if you wait for it - you will do so eternally.

Do not worry, the depreciation is not liniair, but rather exponentional.
So you loose a lot of worth the first week of possesion and almost nothing in week 52.
After the first couple of weeks you just will love the car and forget about the lost money.
Be happy and enjoy.
