I actually got lucky shopping for our 335d. I responded 2 hours after seeing it first posted on CL. We talked for an hour about service records, any scratches or dents and any problems with his 335d. I felt felt comfortable and we agreed on a price. WOW! This was the first car I have committed to buy, sight unseen. The commitment was with the guarantee the car was as it was represented. We flew down 2 weeks later and completed the transaction and drove it home. Strange way to buy a car, but the original owner had all the answers to my questions and the car had all options except adaptive cruise an M sport package, was the right color Monaco Blue with tobacco interior, and only had 25k miles. Good luck!

Mine is a Tasman green. I've never seen another 335d near me in that color.

I looked for over a year for a Tasman Green 335d.
Had to have one of the brown interiors, sport or m-sport, and heated seats.

I found about 3 in a year; all well above $35k.

Stumbled on a grey with black interior with all the options I wanted for $23, so I bought it.

I still search for my unicorn….(sighs heavily)

I don't belive m sport was available in tasman green. Kinda like 335 red msports were not possible to order on a e9x. I relaxed my color choices and called on a black d that I know was available for weeks until I call it's gone.
It will happen maybe not soon but it will.

Most good used cars are sold pretty fast. There's usually a reason for a car not selling. This may be attributable to price, condition, or representation. I find it better to spend more on a better car than buy a car because it's less expensive. Remember...good isn't cheap and cheap isn't good. Buying a used car is always a crapshoot.

The grey one I bought was cheap for a reason. Oil leak and the A/C blower would only blow on low. It was for sale at a non-BMW dealer.
I took it to the BMW dealer for a pre-buy inspection during my test drive. ($190.00). This inspection got me all the service history records and revealed that the oil leak was due to the non-BMW dealer changing the oil and leaving out the $.50 crush washer under the drain plug. The A/C blower problem was due to a bad battery. (The car load-sheds power from the blower to the battery if it needs extra charging.)

I got a proper oil change and a new battery as soon as I bought it.

I just want a white 335D and want to get an idea of how much money it's going to cost to do the work that I want done to it... Second I get the car, remap, DPF delete, straight pipe, tune out EGR, remove EGR cooler, DEF delete, etc, etc, etc, etc

Sounds like you found one then... Try finding a 1994.5-1997 Ford F250 4X4, 4 door short bed diesel.

Did I miss a post or two? How did we get from searching for 335d to F250?

Its really easy to find a 335d although every ad i read states they are "rare" , its such an over used word.. my problem is I'm a option whore... I'd be buying one new if they still made them in the U.S. I'll stay on the hunt for m sport with most of the options after all its really all about the chase..

You can't just add the options you want and/or customize it to your liking?

Mein Auto: 335d, m3 TT turbo
Brand new member here. I'll send you a PM. Have a 2009 Tasman green Sport with all options, including the ridiculous paddles. Nav, cold weather, etc. Perfect interior, excellent exterior, clean title. No wrecks or major flaws in original paint. Black headliner too, I believe, to match the black interior. A CarMax certified car. Bought last year with 76K miles, now has 85K miles. Extended bumper to bumper CarMax warranty until 126K. Car just sits in the garage under a cover while I rack up miles on my parents' Genesis sedan, which has thousands of miles left to use on a lease that ends this year.

No maintenance issues EVER. One SES light last year was a sensor only, with a quick warranty repair at BMW dealer. Great car, but I either drive the Genesis(zzz..) or a TT Stage 2 M3(yeeha!). Call me, maybe, if interested. Phone will be in the PM.

Would like to get low 20's for the car with the zillion dollar warranty and a fairly fresh set of staggered Pirelli's. Want to move up to either a 535D or a newer diesel wagon when Genesis lease is up. Would sell for less without warranty, as I think I could get a refund of approx. $2,000. I'm near DC, but car is garaged at my house in Chapel Hill at the moment.
