2008 gasoline or 2009 Diesel, about to buy an used X5

Hi, All:

I had couple of choice for now, have to buy a bigger family car before year end, just sold my BMW 3 and now driving my wife's mini, then you guys know it.

i have couple of choice and mainly want a quiet, comfort but fun-driving car, of course, I alway like higher MPG

1. Craigslist, 2008 3.0si, 55k miles premium package, technology package, cold weather package, running board...etc expect can get it around $26500

2. Craigslist, 2009 X5 35D, 38K miles, premium, technology, cold weather, climate, active ventilated seat package, pretty much loaded everything except sport package. probably can get it around $34000

3. CPO, 2009 X5 35D, 44K, cold weather package, iphone adpator, it's minimum loaded, about $34500

which way to go?

the CPO one sure does, but is this a good idea to get a pretty much base BMW?

Get the "in service date" on the fully loaded BMW.

From that, you can calculate how many more months of warranty you have left.

Sorry, but I do not quite understand what you mean, one is CPO and obviously it has 2 years more warranty

One is 2009 and is abut to expire infew month, but if the car is running good, wha's the point to go to dealer anyway.

I think I should ask in a simpler way, Market value wise, which one is better, thanks

Market value wise all X5s will be worthless when the new X5 comes out.

I would study the repair history before making decision. I personally like the X5 35D I got. So if all looks the same, I vote for diesel.

They won't be "worthless" but as with any car the previous style models are not as desirable so they drop in value to a degree. Of course, that might be off set somewhat by new model glitches and problems! Ya pays your money and takes your choice.
