The sad truth is that accident/paint work on late model BMWs really hurts the resale value.. I'd also be worried about possible future structural issues with the folding hardtop (which already looks complicated, enough).
If the lower price resulted in a great lease deal, I'd go ahead with no qualms... but, if you think you might sell that car in the next four years, then the paint work will hurt your resale value (significantly, if it shows up on CarFax).
There have to be a lot of options when it comes to late model BMW convertibles, as well as pretty good lease programs on new ones. Is this one that great of a deal, to take a chance?

Thanks for the reply, it was a demo which the dealer is selling. I know it is asking too much but if I buy it, it will be based on trusting the dealer.

Thanks for the reply. I have the exact same concerns and I think I am leaning towards leasing a new one, unless the dealer really drops the price.

Agreed. You're more likely to experience a failure in a car that HASN'T had its HPFP replaced with a more recent HPFP, because the original ones were more failure prone. Also, a special 10year, 120K warranty applies to the HPFP on affected models, so I wouldn't let this one issue hold you back. The engine is incredible, as is the car. My HPFP was replaced twice over 36K miles that I owned the car. I still loved the car dearly. The problem never stranded me or caused a dangerous situation.
#11070 of 12234 Any BMW Owner Loyalty Programs???
Aug 03, 2010 (1:16 pm)
Hi Car Man,
My current BMW lease will be ending so in early July I placed an order for a 2011 328 Coupe (leasing again). I was wondering if BMWFS is currently running any BMW owner loyalty programs for which I would qualify for?? I've searched everywhere on the internet but I could not find anything and the dealer did not mention anything either. The residual is 60% and the MF offered to me is .00185 (15k mile lease). Is this the best they're currently doing for returning customers? Are they offering any owner loyalty lease cash? Or a maybe a MF rate lower than .00185? Also, I'll be ending my lease early and was wondering if they're offering their 'pull ahead" program. I just feel like the dealer did not disclose everything so I was hoping that maybe you can shed some light into this.
Thank you for your help!

I was looking for CPO 2007 for past 3 months and the best quote that I had got from dealer was 25,500$ + tax for a car with 26k miles on it.
Important point to note here is, dealer will never mention about the extended warranty for 5th and 6th year. If you are getting extended warranty in 25K, its a good deal. But if dealer is not giving you the extended warranty in CPO, then its of no use to buy the CPO vechicle. Extended warranty usually costs around 1500$ for 2 years.

First of all, I would like to thank all of you here on this forum. This forum has helped me a lot in researching the vechicle I wanted to buy.
I just got the 2010 328 xi from NJ Dealer. I got a deal of 37,600$ out of the door (34,500 + 2500 tax + doc fee + registration)
The car has
1. Premium Package
2. Heated Steering Wheel
3. Logic 7 Sound System
4. Black Sapphire.
5. 1 year Sat Radio
