#385 of 400 Looking at a used (non CPO) 5 series wagon - need advice
Dec 29, 2010 (8:36 pm)
We are former 3 series sportwagon owners - had an amazing experience, bought the car new.
I'm in the market for a new car - and I'd love to get a 5 series wagon. My price range limits me to 2006/7 used 5 series (530xi).
A lot of them have been detailed - and look great - but I'm looking for advice on what I should be really looking for. Timing belts, water pumps, brakes ... etc.
If I found something that I was serious about, I would have it inspected by a BMW dealer before making a purchase, but I'd like some basic knowledge about the car and things I should be avoiding.
Most cars in my price range are 75k miles and up ... highest I've seen is 120k miles.
Would appreciate any advice the group has around shopping in this mileage/age bracket.

#387 of 400 OTD pricing on a 08 528 in the Bay Area
Jan 29, 2011 (9:49 pm)
In the market for a 08 528i. I have found several CPOs with <30k miles for about $29-30k. Just wondering what kind of OTD offers I should be giving for these vehicles? I was expecting to offer in the range of $29-30k OTD. Anyone else recently purchased a 08?

Good evening. I am looking for some advice on a possible car purchase. First off i currently drive a 99 Acura TL with 205k miles. It is time to be replaced. I have found a 2001 BMW 525. It is very nice, test drove it today. White with M5 bumper and spoiler, so has a more aggressive look. However it has more miles that i normally purchase a car with. It has 171k miles. The car is priced at 5800. The engine is very clean. And it drove absolutely a like a dream. I was wondering if it is a vechicle that would be a good deal, or one i should avoid, and look at something with less miles.
Thank you so much for your time. Any advice is much apperciated.

#390 of 400 Price Validation: '08 535xi CP with Nav/Premium/Cold Weather Pkd/Park Assis
Mar 29, 2011 (3:32 am)
I am looking to buy a '08 535xi for under the .9% BMW finance promotion for 33900 with about 31700 miles. Black with Beige interior. This has the premium package with nav, premium, cold weather package, rear heated seat and park assisst.
New tires as part of CPO, brakes are still 10 mm left...What do the gurus say about this pricing. It is in the twincities area. Also is it recommended to buy the maintenance plan for 2k or so..
All help is appreciated...i saw 528 on this forum for 28k which seems awesome deal...

I'm in the same boat as rajeev raj. I'm eyeing a CPO 2009 535xi with 28k miles. Blue on beige with auto, navigation, premium package, cold weather package, xenox highlights, sunroof, ipod integration. I'm not sure what I should offer or what is a good deal on this vehicle. List is about 37k, any advice? I'm in the NJ area, car is actually located about 125 miles away in MA.
#392 of 400 2007 525xi for $28,250 OTD
Jul 08, 2011 (9:18 am)
I just bought a 2007 525xi for $28,250, OTD in New Jersey. It has the navigation, sports and cold weather package. The car has 47,000 miles. There were two previous owners, first was a lease and the second a CPO purchase. There's still 19 months of CPO warranty left on the car, 6 years or 100k miles. . The car drives very well. We will see how it works out. This is my first BMW and pre-owned/CPO car

I am looking at two 2010 528ix's - both were dealer service loaners. Both about 24K miles, in service dates of Aug 09 and Dec 09 respectively. One is paltinum gray / gray interior, the other jet black/black. Both very clean. Both offered at 38,900, neither is certified. I am thinking of having the one I choose certified to get the extra warranty and inspection. Likely I will get that included in the price. Is this a good price? Any comments on reliability / service? I have an older A6 now (99) that has been pretty good, but man when something does break it is expensive!

I have a 2008 528i and my warranty is about to expire in 2 months. I bought the car used it's not CPO.
Curious to know if you purchased an extended warranty or maintenance plan on your BMW?
Have you had any issues at all? I ran into a dead battery issues a month ago, but that's about it.
I'm on the fence.
