Good deal on a demonstartor?

Hi guys. First post here. I currently have an 05 525 (old man's car) while it is very nice and smooth, I miss shifting and driving fun, which is a 330 6-man sport.

Is $39000 a good deal for a 330 with 6-man, sport, premium, heated seats? 4000 miles on it.

Car looks perfect.

IMHO - No Way. In those 4k miles, the car has been absolutely hammered. The savings you keep now, will not cover the problems down the road.

I would lease the demo, so being hammered will be someone elses problem long term perhaps. I have seen both ways. Baby a car or just drive the piss out of it, it comes down to build quality. I am on my 6th BMW with the 525, these things are built very well. The hammering part does not bother me, I just wanna know if 39K is fair for a demo. If I add up the invoice, I get right around 38K. Should a used car not sell for that number? I have a good relationship with the dealer and my salesman, I don't mind if he makes a commission on me as long as it is not rape. I think the dealer itself should take less for the car, not the difference coming out the sales guy and finance guys ass.

I am really trying to get to a monthly payment number that is the same as my 525.

I'm not sure why you want to pay $1k over invoice on a demo when you can probably get the same deal on a brand new car. I can understand if you can't wait and need the car now.

The most the dealer will knock off a new one is $1000-1500. They also use a higher money factor. They are the only BMW around without driving 200 miles away.
