2008 550i CPO

Greetings,
I am looking into purchasing a certified 2008 550i with less that 34K miles, Sports, Premium & Cold packages. I'm in VA and looking across the US. What kinda prices are these puppies going for around the US?
Thanks.

I was looking at these cars, but only with the full M Sport Package a while back, and it seemed that they were going from the high $30,k's to mid $40k's, but I'm not a dealer.

You should be able to search on BMWs website for that car with unlimited distance radius to get a sense of national pricing. Beware that a lot of dealers seem to price their CPOs excessively high (by at least 5k) so they can give a "good deal" on negotiation.

30k would be dreaming... Here in L.A. 2008 550i CPO M-Sports are going for $45k-$50k

I've got an 08 550 M-Sport, 20K miles, manual, most options including HUD, and will be lucky to get $42K for it when I sell it in a couple months. Los Angeles area

Thats because its a manual (desirable to you, but not to most) and not a CPO. Auction prices for manual BMWs (other than the M3) are much less.

I agree with NewManium, the CPO cars are priced excessively high, and maybe my high end estimate of $50k was overstating. But definitely not going to find one in the $30s....

Thanks for the input guys, I noticed that dealers are offering trade-in 08 550s w. sport, cold & premium pckgs with mid 30k miles for around $35k +/- then CPO them and list them for high 40s.
