When I did my research to purchase a 2008 BMW 535i in October, I reviewed 528i pricing, too. Sounds like a good asking price, but allow me to suggest that you consider going under that by a good amount with your offer as it is almost the end of the calendar year. The 2011s will be out in the spring. I suspect you could get into a 2009 CPO for not too much more, if you don't mind haggling. Yes, I am the eternal optimist. Good luck.

About 4 weeks ago I found a loaded (Sport, Premium, Cold, PDC, Navi, RFT, Sport Auto Transmission with Paddles, etc) 2008 535i Sport Sapphire Black with black interior on Ebay. The car had just over 5K miles on it and was like new. The listing was from a private seller selling his former wife's car. He was looking for $42K or more, but the high bid stopped at $35K on Ebay. I called him to look at the car and after driving it, negotiated a deal at $39K. Considering the car stickered at about $60K, I think I got a great deal for a nearly new car, although I would have preferred the CPO coverage buying from a dealer. Given the discounting going on in today's economy, was this a good deal?

Yes. Great deal. A good extended warranty will be as good as CPO. Some of them will even cove Nav system

Hello: I am a first time BMW buyer and would appreciate help in my buying decision. I have been focussing in the 2007 CPO 5 series, primarily because of the 0.9% APR and 2 months prepayments offer, and have liked a 2007 525i with 35K miles on it, and end of warranty in Dec 2010. Its not loaded as it has only the premium package, does not have cold package but has heated front seats, price qouted is $29,700, but the salesman told me that due to month end/year end, they woudl go down by 2-4% so the price could be as low as $28.5K. I am happy with these options but woudl like to hear your opinions on the $28.5K price or shoudl i negotiate lower or what else can I get in addition to $28.5 that the dealer may not mind parting with...i.e. in a way cash neutral for him...thanks

i finally bought the car for $27.5K and 0.9% APR and BMW pays first 2 instalments. Does it look like a fair price?

If you really-really like the car, it's a good deal. If you have no major issues after the warranty is over in a year -- it's a good deal. Having others on these forums evaluate your deal after you already bought the car serves little purpose except to open you up to pointless praise or criticism. Enjoy your new ride and happy new year.

Shouldn't CPO extend the warranty to 6-year/100,000 miles from original in-service date, which I would guess Dec. 2006 thus give you warranty till Dec. 2012?

Jan 02, 2010 (1:35 pm)
This car has not hit the lot is having four new tires and the BMW safety checks. They will be putting it for sale at $31900.0. What would be a sensible offer with the current 0.9% and two months paid. The car is in the Olivin Green with beige Dakota leather and Premium Pack. Thanks for the help.

I am told that BMW have stopped production of the 2010 and that cars will not be available at such god deals as with the Mercedes E Class.
Anyone heard any news on offers??

I'm not sure how much bmw will discount cpo's, especially ones just going on the lot with new tires. Most shoppers have to work hard for a deal but who knows? My guess is that the 2 payments are all they are going to offer unless there is no interest for several months.
