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 $$.

Thanks for the advice.
the 2010 528xi we bought was a demo with 6k on it. we drove for a week and found a lot problems with that car. fortunately the dealer is willing to exchange the car for us. Currently it's hard to find a brand new 2010 model and the dealer offer us $53,160 (MSRP is $56,176) for a brand new 2011 535i. Should I go for it or should I look for another 2010 model?

Hi all. I am in the market for a new/low mile 2010 535xi and I am hoping all of the buzz of the new model 5 series will create a "buying opportunity". Any recent purchase info would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

You can get great deals on 2010. They have $4500 dealer incentive, plus over $4k margin. I got a exec demo for $12k off list, plus 2.9 financing for 72 mo

Coolmaru, my car is alpine white.
As shown in my sales documents, my car was around 39.7K. So taxes and ttl etx cost about 2.8K in TX.

hey jazzy, did you pay 33k out the door?
I am currently in the market for an 08 535i but the dealers are pretty reluctant to lower their asking prices. they keep giving me the cost it cost them to repair/maintain the car to justify the none negotiable prices. did you get that when you were buying your car if so, how did you over come it.

buyers beware,,,I am about to be bought out of my lease on my 2009 535xi because of the "HFP stall/engine defective." I have been told that approximately 25% of the 2008- 2010 335 and 535 BMW's have this defect. It is real and dangerous.
check the various web sites regarding this issue. BMW is dealing with each customer on a case by case basis. I believe they are trying to avoid a recall.( They don't want a "Toyota like recall".)
It might make sense to go into a 2011 with the new single turbo engine that apparently doesn't have this problem.

So we turned in our X3 on Saturday & the BMW CPO salesman sees our 2010 TSX and asks: "So you're leaving us?"
I told him yes, unless you have something with a sports package & 6 speed stick that's a fantastic deal.
He points me to an '08 CPO 550i with SP & 6spd w/ 30K. Asking price is $46K!
Thanks, but no thanks. Beautiful car though.
