Are you saying the 2011 528xi will now have RFT? I own a 2008 and the RFT were not standard. I live in NJ and with the roads not being the best with potholes from the winter especially, this is a negative for me. I have a friend who has the 18" RFT on this 2008 335 and he is on tire #8. He's more than happy he got the tire insurance, but there is no give in the RFT's and when hitting a pothole, well........
I wonder if previously the non AWD 528's had the run flats. Does anyone know for sure? I haven't seen the specs on the 528 x-drive online. I heard you can order them from the dealer for Sept. delivery. My lease is up in Feb. 2011.
#3718 of 4028 2007 530i CPO purchase
Jul 05, 2010 (12:32 pm)
hi, i am getting a 2007 530i CPO this week for 29k even. it is loaded with the premium package, nav. the only thing it does not have is the logic7 sound system. has 45k miles and 2/2011 is when the factory warranty expires and the CPO 2-year warranty begins. i think i got a really good deal. the other 530i on the lot has 30k miles and the price on that is 35k. less miles, but either way they both end their factory warranty in 7 months, and i will only drive probably 5k miles in that time anyway...
considered with the run flat tire issue. but i don't know if it was common on this year/model?

I'm negotiating on a 2010 528xi exec demo with 10K miles, MSRP is $50K and I'm at a price of $37,750. Seems like a good deal but would appreciate opinions.
#3720 of 4028 Is this a good deal
Jul 06, 2010 (8:34 am)
I have been looking for a 2011 528xi and have seen a few 2010 528xi's. They are selling in the 40K range , well equipped. 37,750 seems good, but you must know what the options are on the car. For example leather package ( $1800) and premium package 2 ( $4900) MSRP amount to $6.700 putting the 528xi price over $55,600.
Go to Edmunds new cars and spec the car out you will know exactly MSRP and Invoice. You can judge from there. If you do buy and are on the east coast would you let me know the dealer. I have been trying to get a quote on a 2011 528 xi and am told the "official" prices are not released yet. Good luck

I already knew the options - the MSRP was $49,875. I actually got a slightly lower price on another 528xi, but it was a service loaner rather than a one owner, plus my wife didn't like the color.
#3722 of 4028 2008 535i price
Jul 07, 2010 (4:49 pm)

#3723 of 4028 how much should I pay for 2011 535 i ?

Hi guys, I'm changing the 2010 528 xi to 2011 535i, the MSRP is $56,000, with premium pkg, cold weather, etc. what should I really pay for it? the invoice is something around $51,100. I have to make decision soon, so any quick advice will be highly appreciated!!

Great price Jazzy. We picked up a 2007 550i with 40k miles a year ago for $35k (CPO).

subenrie: what is 528xi price? Do you need the awd?
I prefer the 2010 styling myself. You have to drive both to decide if you really need the extra power. We leased a 528i over a 535i a few years ago and didnt feel the extra $$$ / month was worth it.
If you are buying, better get a good price on the 528 as its value is already down.

Before you jump at the 2011 535i check out this months cover story comparison in Car & Driver with the 2011 535, Audi A6, and Infiniti M45....the 2011 came in LAST!
(When was the last time you saw a BMW come in last in any C&D comparison???)
From what I can tell the 2011 is a step back from the 2008-2010 535is in terms of performance and handling. If you're looking for a mini-7 series though it may be worth the extra $$.
