Mein Auto: E60 535i M-sport
Price Check

I've been looking at sport packaged 2010 535i and 2008-10 550i models

My preferences were:
M sport
Rwd
Non black metallic exterior color
Minor preference for my10 with newer electronics.

After eye-balling pretty much every car within 500 miles, I've found this:

2010 535i rwd
39,xxx miles
M-sport
Premium / value package
Nav
Heated seats
Space saver spare wheel
PDC
Space grey over black.
I might be forgetting a couple options.
CPO & ext maintenance remaining over almost 2 years.

They're not willing to budge from 30,500 plus a rather high 399 dealer fee.

I've looked on cars.com, AT, eBay, forums and multiple Craigslist.

Price seems very fair considering rarity of rwd m-sport 535s in the northeast and even private sellers are asking 33-35 for the same car, sometimes without any ext warranty or maint.

Thoughts?

Price Check

Seems like a very fair price on the surface ($399 dealer fee notwithstanding) provided it is not a salvage and the car is good mechanically. Still, get it checked out by a trusted mechanic or an online inspection company before forwarding money. My wife has the 09 model of the 535 -- absolutely loves it.

I agree with batmbl. Price is fair as long as you can confirm with an independent pre-purchase inspection that the car is in great shape. You definitely want to get a copy of the service records to make sure it's been well maintained.

I called up BMWUSA to confirm any existing warranties for the car when I bought mine.
