Please HElp!!!!

Hi everyone. Hopefully I can get some help with a purchase I am about to make. I recently viewed a 2010 (March) (10 plate) BMW 318i SE Business Edition and was able to negotiate the price down to £13,000 from £15,000.

Information on the Car

2 previous owners. Current owner, non smoking pregnant lady (dont know if thats important)

Just under 33,000 miles

Manual transmission

3 Month manufacturers warranty,

Black Dakota leather Seats

Satellite Navigation

MP3 Connectivity

Bluetooth

Rear window privacy glass

Small chip on the window which the owner said will be fixed before sale

The car looked in very good condition and I test drove it without experiencing any problems

2 months tax which he said he will increase by another 6months
I am taking it to a local franchise BMW dealer to have it inspected as I am not the best with cars.


Is the price reasonable. What would you realistically pay for it. Glass gives a recommendation of £13,360 but from what I here the prices they give are usually a lot more than street value


Thank you in advance

There is little that most of us in the USA/CA can do to help you - prices/options are so different. There is a UK forum, I believe, and a couple of UK posters; but don't look for too much.

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

We are international site, but there are a lot of people from the US here. There are also people from many other countries on this site. We are delighted to help in any way we can, especially with technical problems or questions.

Unfortunately, helping with UK pricing information is a question for our British members only. The rest of us really don't know what is a good deal or not in that market.

Thank you for writing. Cheers!
