2.Just because carfax says “registered as Corporate Fleet” does not mean the car was driven by BMW. When I sold my wife’s Lexus RX350 (we bought it new) I ordered up a carfax for my autotrader car ad. The carfax showed the same exact thing “registered as Corporate Fleet”. Last time I check, my wife and I are not a corporate entity…lol
3.I would say, do not pay asking price. Start with a low offer and see where things go from there. You should be able to get a minimum of $2500 to $3,000 off the asking price. That car has been sitting on their lot for over 3 months now so I'm sure they would like to get it sold.
Thanks for the feedback, I was hoping to find somebody on this forum that has dealt with the dealer before. I'm really looking forward to a test-drive now. I've never even driven a BMW before, let alone a 335i. I'm coming from a beat up 96 Mustang GT (with a very good and reliable V8 engine).
