I sold a 12 year old, 115k mile M3 for over KBB on BMWCCA.org's classified webpage in twelve hours. I then got 200+ more inquiries. People cruising that webpage are looking specifically for BMW's. Ads are free to members, too. My advice would be to not list a phone number, just an e-mail, and have an info package ready to send back to inquirers. Don't bother with a print ad in Roundel. The new issues trickle out over several weeks. All the hot prospects are looking at the webpage.

For literally months, I had people calling about my car, and we'd end up yacking for 30 minutes. Frau Putzer was getting annoyed. The local BMWCCA chapter meetings and newsletters are good places to sell a BMW, too.

I have waiting lists for my BMW's when I'm done with them. But, if the lists don't work, my go-to will be BMWCCA's webpage. That was the case with my M3. Ten people on the list either backed out or low-balled me.

EAG in ohio will likely snap it up. They refurb the cars and sell for top (top) dollar.

Id give individuals a chance to buy it. Only sell it to EAG if nobody comes through.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells
