Smile 2002 Certified 540I Sport Package with Low Miles

This pristine BMW 540IA has been meticulously maintained and comes with BMWs certified 6 Year/100,000 Mile Warranty. It has never seen snow or salt and has had all scheduled maintenance performed at the local BMW dealership.


The car has very low mileage for its model year with only 39,856 miles. It comes with a long list of extras which include:


Cold Weather Package

-Heated Front Seats

-Headlight Washers


Sport Package

-17 M Sport Alloy Wheels

-Performance Dunlop SP Sport 2000E 235/45YR 17 tires

-Power Front Sport Seats

-M Sport Steering Wheel

-Sport Suspension

-Performance Rear Axle

-Steptronic Transmission


Fold Down Rear Seats with Ski Bag


This 2002 540IA comes with BMWs rock solid 4.4-liter V8 with 290 horsepower that provides 0-to-60 mph acceleration times in the low 6 seconds.


I have included the original invoice in the pictures and as you can see the list price in 2002 was $57,320.00. The warranty is extended through April 26, 2008 or 100,000 miles which ever comes first. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to come see the car.

I am asking $31,000 OBO for the vehicle. Please feel free to email me or call me at 443-623-4359.

Dont want to rain on your parade.

I think your car is grossly overpriced; Luxury Motors is selling them for much less..

I appreciate your comment. Looking through the website you provided the only car I saw with the same mileage that WASNT CERTIFIED was a 03 with 35,853 miles for 29,985. So if my car is grossly overpriced then an interested party can offer me what they think the car is worth, hence OBO at the end of the sentence.

robbiei72:

There is a value which people will associate with a CPO warranty, but it will not be more than $1000-$1500 for the two years left (it might be less). The car you are referring to is a 2003 and not a 2002. What is more important is that there are a lot of cars available in the low to mid 20s. Granted that they may have some more milage (40-50K), but the gap is still huge. In fact there is one with 19K miles which is priced in the mid-20s.

Another thing to keep in mind is that those guys are retail dealers. Private party values are likely to be less. And the prices posted are their list prices which too can be negotiated.

Through writing OBO does help, but you have to price it in the right range to make a sale. Most people who are willing to consider buying stuff via the web are savvy enough to do a search and see what the going range is. If you price it well outside the range, you are practically cutting out any serious buyers. You might still get interest from people looking for a joy-ride but serious buyers are likely to balk at even initiating contact.

Good luck.

Price Reduced

I need to sell the car and as much as I hate to see it go, I have reduced the price to 26K OBO. Let me know if anyone is interested.
