I am also looking for a CPO 2007 530i, and I can tell you two cars I looked at:
1. 28K miles, sports, premium, cold, nav asking $34,900, dropped it to $32,900 and the car sold before I could get there with the deposit. Black/Black. Car was impeccable.Warranty to Oct2012.
2. White/Beige, premium, sports, no cold, 18K miles, went into service Apr08, which means warranty expires Apr 2014. Very unusual. They started $39,900, dropped it to $36,900, wouldn't negotiate, and the car sold. I'm kicking myself.
Your price sounds very high to me. Tell them what you're willing to pay and be prepared to walk -- AND lose the vehicle. You can look on BMW USA website, search preowned, and get an idea of pricing.

#237 of 400 Buying a CPO BMW out of State
Feb 07, 2009 (5:40 am)
I'm being offered a nice 2007 5 series out of state (60 miles from my house).
Does anyone have any experiences buying out of state? What are the advantages, disadvantages. I would have to service the car at one of my local BMW dealers, no question. But if there's a problem with the vehicle, are they going to approach it the same way as a dealer who sold the car?
Please advise, I hate to pass up this opportunity. Also, do sales taxes apply if the car is bought out of state? Years ago, we use to go shopping in NYC because we didnt' have to pay sales tax. I doubt that's the case any longer.

As i've been reading most posts it seems not very many have bought a 535i. I've been looking to get an 08. Is there problems with them or is it just a model not everyone buys?

That's true. I was looking at a beautiful 535i at Bridgeport CT dealer, 2008, had 28K miles on it, they started asking $42,995, then dropped now down to $38,995. Car looks impeccable, but as the salesman said to me, with two extra moving parts (the turbos) naturally there are more parts to have a problem with, as compared to the straight in line 6 cyl. engine. For me, that's just too high powered for me. I really don't know why BMW did that, given they have the 550 model also. That's why I'm going for a 2007 530i, I really don't want that huge engine.
Another reason you haven't seen too many CPO 535i, is because they just came out with that style in 2008, so the leases aren't coming back in yet.

I recently pruchased a 07 530 with 16K miles for around 30K
It has prem pkg , steptronic , Sirius , no nav or sports .The car was very clean
I guess you should shoot for less than 35 K
#242 of 400 BMW sales on used inventory.
Feb 16, 2009 (9:53 am)
Does anyone have an idea if the used inventory dealers are hurting given the economy?
I can't find any info on BMW used sale figures.
Also I'm seeing that the inventory around the counrty is drying up for the 5series. autotrader.com
Maybe the Presidents sales are working.
I need to wait till spring before I pull the trigger. hope more inventory shows up 06' 07 530xi or 530ixt

You're right, quit a few out there. My mistake, I was looking for a specific package 2006, 2007 530xi premium,cold,sport.
More difficult to find hope to see more comming off lease. I see in the lease section people are talking about March, April lease cars finishing up.
I have time to wait till spring anyway.
Thanks for the info.
