Advice on a 2006 325i


Yesterday I test drove a 325i 6-speed manual with 66K on it. Great condition. A seemingly clean Carfax with two owners who took good care of it. First owner a lease with regular service. Second owner a personal owner who, according to Carfax, brought it to dealer every 6,000 miles for service through Mile 56k and a clean emmisions report at 66k.

Biggest service on CarFax was water pump replaced at 51k and Ignition coil(s) replaced at 53k. All service by both owners done at same BMW dealer. Both owners seemingly took care of this car.

Car was fun to drive. Extremely clean inside. Dealer asking 16,990, which I think is high. My target is 16, but I'll go 16,200 ...

Any thoughts on ...

1. Price

2. Concern over manual transmission? ... More or fewer issues than automatic

3. Do not really prefer a black interior, but can live with it. Any hotter than others?

4. Another thing ... I live about 2.5 hours away ... I asked about a PPI, and they said they could take it to a shop of my choosing within 10 miles. Cynical part of me says I should be concerned, but I'm not really.
