  1. General BMW Questions
    I've been in the market for a 2014-2016 435i for quite some time and no luck yet. A 435i popped up locally and we went to check it out. It's a 2014 with 57k miles. Super clean car (one of the cleanest I've seen), metallic gray with blacked out rims, grill, carbon fiber spoiler, HUD, etc. etc...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi All, Sorry for the very long post in advance. read the bold to get the idea I'm possibly looking into purchasing a new to me 2009 535xi M Sport to replace my 2007 525xi. I bought my 525xi in 2013 with 117,000 KM and it needed some work. There was a dent on the passenger side, a notch on the...
  3. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy a used 7 series, and I've been drawn towards the BMW 740il or 740i E38. Their sticker prices are attractive, and I love the look of that era of BMW. However I don't want to buy a money pit and wanted to ask some more experienced people their opinions to save...
  4. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hey there GT owners I have decided the 535i GT (no x drive) is my next sweet ride but I have a few questions. Considering model years 2010-2013. First, even though I'm in a major metro area (Silicon Valley CA), I am finding few cars for sale. Are people holding on to them or were there not...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey guys, first post. Apologies if this should be somewhere else. I'm in the market for a red 335i sedan, 2012 or newer, out the door price under 35k. I found a 2012 from a wholesaler online that looks like a good deal... pretty much fully loaded for $31,500 with 25k miles... but was involved...
  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)

I'm currently shopping for a 335i sedan, 2012 or newer, red exterior color, and trying to keep the out the door price below 35k. I've had my current 2002 Acura RSX Type-S for...
  7. BMW Diesel Owners & Enthusiasts
    Hey all, I'm currently a college student doing some very, very early pre-purchasing research for my first post-college car. The 335d seems to be really great in terms of both power and fuel economy, plus there's the neatness factor of driving a diesel. However, most 335d's on the market now have...
  8. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi all, new here but I drove a 2000 z3 for several years before family life intervened and I traded it in on a minivan. (sob) Now, about six months ago I was diagnosed with stage iv colon cancer and I've been driving the 30 miles to the chemo center in the family Prius, and thinking how much...
  9. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hey Guys- Been doing a lot of research on this site and ended up with a 2010 528 drive with 63k on it. Has the cold weather and a nice color combo so I went for it. I am of course hesitant as this is my first big car purchase. Obviously I went for the 528 for the inline 6 and saving a little...
  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Is MSRP - $2000 a good deal for "purchase" of a 2015 428i Gran Coupe? According to dealers in Texas, this seems to the the greatest deal out there. :dunno: What are the best deals that people have managed to get on a similar purchase (not a lease)? Will appreciate some details on the exact...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Noob question I'm sure, but I'll get right to it - hoping I don't get flak! Looking into getting myself back to my BMW roots. My first car, and the car I learned to drive on, was a 1990 325, manual. Now that I'm old enough to take on the responsibility of regular maintenance required for an...
  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have come across a 1998 Z3, and it has been parked with the head pulled for about 2 years. The previous owner had pulled the head after it apparently overheated. Would it be worth the gamble it just needs the head machined and checked, and installed back on the engine, or is it too big a crap...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi, I was told by a local dealer the 435 convertible will be available in July. I'm trying to get one In July or early August, my concern is should I order one or wait to see inventory after they arrive. Would it be too late to order one now to secure one in that time frame? And since it would...
  14. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Good afternoon gents (and ladies if there are any...). I have owned an e34 twice, and just sold a nightmare e39 that lost me over $6,000 in a year. Now I am going for an e34 again and found one nearby and was hoping for your advice. The e34 is at 192,000 miles, is a 530i, but had the Alusil...

    Hey everyone - new here, since this is our first potential BMW purchase. We're thinking about replacing my wife's '05 Accord (145K) with a 2003 540i. Just starting the process, but found what appears to be a good option from a private seller. Here are the details I have now: - 65K miles - 2...

From the ad it looks that there is hardly any rust, however it has a big dent on the drivers side front fender. Apparently the ABS is not working, the headrests...
