Mein Auto: 2012 X3 XDrive 328i
2012 X3 XDrive

Hi,

I have 2010 328i with 35k and now Iím planning to upgrade the vehicle to suv mainly interested in X3. As I was looking in internet I found this car at a dealer 2012 Xdrive 28i X3 with 25k miles on it with premium package and the asking price is 36,000. So we went and looked at the car and did a little drive test (local roads) which we felt good but the only problem I see is itís a Corporate lease vehicle bought in Auction by this dealer, I mean 25,000 miles in more than a year is too many miles I guess.

I need some help here like what I should know about the vehicle from the dealer, how much I can ask for, the Kelly book price for this car is $35k and is it okay to take a corporate lease vehicle are they good?

Any suggestions or advises will be really appreciated.

To start, ask the dealer to print out a vehicle history to see what warranty work was done.

ya, the dealer gave a me car fax report of the vehicle and there was a oil change and filter change at 15,000 miles , the report looks clean and neat. today again i went and did a test drive on free way and everything looks fine, i asked for $33,000 but he said no way and his price is 35,200 went down by $700.

Not a "Car Fax" but a BMW system-generated vehicle history.

Details of any repairs done under warranty by any BMW dealer. Then you might see if there are any excessive repairs, multiple repairs for the same problem, etc.

+1...it should also show any minor car damage that may not have been reported to agencies like Car Fax.
