Question 2010 335i M Sport - 70k miles!

So I'm looking at a 2010 335i M Sport coupe, fully loaded, as in every possible option, but with 70k miles and a previous accident. According to Carfax, the car, which is from a corporate fleet, had the accident at 20k miles, and from that mileage, it had 3 alignments at 32k, 42k, and 47k. I'm thinking there was some sort of frame damage though the dealer denies this.

What would be a fair price? Dealer wants $28k (also, car was sold to them at an auction). The rest of the car looks good for 70k miles, the rock chips on the front are evident as are all the exterior blemishes you'd expect at that mileage. What do you guys think?

I would stay away from that one. High mileage 335i with no warranty and been in accident at not even a great price. Are there options in it that you think are special? Fully loaded isn't too difficult to find its usually more difficult to find rare color combos or manuals (at least from my searching last year that was the case). I think you can do better

I was going to ask $24-25k max. It's black on black, literally every option except heated steering wheel. It even has the black wood interior and hifi sound system. M sports have been pretty rare in the northeast. I've been looking for the last 5 months and this is the only one I've found that has every feature/color I want in my price range (most have been in the $32-$35k range), which is the only reason I'm actually considering it.

accident? more likely the control arms are fucked up or out of whack.

ps, if its the car at DZ motors, walk.

bunch of shitty scum bags and they listed a few fucked up bmws in the past. im local to them at work, and they have a terrible reputation.

Yeah, that's the one...you're the second person to tell me that. I guess I should just let it go. In the months of searching, it's been the only car that has everything I want, in terms of options, colors, etc., that's in my price range. I would've gone there and done a PPI, but it's 3.5 hours away...

Thanks for the advice...

buddy of mine took one of their cars to the shop across the street, they told him the car was fine. he test drove it again, it felt off (it was an m3 btw), drove it to a shop i trust, they found the passenger side control arms were bent back.

it isnt the first time, it wont be the last time some one throws it back. ps that car had a clean carfax, but when he ran the vin, some other company red flagged it.

Nope

I would not touch it. You can get an 11 with everything on it that has only 11k miles for $38,000.

Try Auto trader.

Before I purchased a 328xi, I was looking at a white 335 coupe, xi, M-Sport, Nav, 23k miles at driveanything.com. The previous owner lived in westchester (better roads). It had a clean carfax.

The internet price was 36k but the dealer was willing to let it go for 34.5k. It is still listed if you are interested. They are located in PA. The only thing was no CPO since it's not a BMW dealer.

You can get a mint, low mileage 2010 135i for that price or even less.

Consider it. I had/have both - the 135i is a better car. Period.
