It'a really good price, but for around 2-3k more you can get a CPO. Check on the BMWUSA website or click this link: http://www.bmwusa.com/cpo/cpomain?navid=modelsearch, you can search for whatever you want.

Folks, you have to do your research. All 2002 and 2003 E65/E66 come with a 6 yr/100K factory bumper to bumper warranty. This warranty is better than the limited CPO warranty. What you want to make sure is that you extend the factory maintenance contract to 6yr/100K and you will be all set. There is absolutely no point in going to a dealer to get a 2002/2003 E65/E66. What you do want to make sure is that the car is not a buy back or a trade assist vehicle. You should get the service records from a dealer using the VIN.

Good luck and enjoy the ride. You can do a $1-2K less for the car but it is a fair price.

Given the points that BayAreaBMWFan pointed out, I'd say go for it. It has low mileage. The color looks really nice with chrome wheels BTW.
