Reality Check - 2006 330i

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds

Item Interest
Hi BMW owners,

Glad to find this group
A Very Happy New Year to all on the list.

I recently started my search for my long due BMW. I ran into a deal at a dealer(deals with European cars) on craigs who is selling BMW 2006 330i driven ~33100k .
Its a lease return and he is selling it for 25995 tag price, which I think can very well be bargained. According to dealer car has been inspected for 150pts

This is my first BMW and knowing how little I know abt bimmers , I was wondering if someone can help me out with some of the basic questions
1. From your experience, what all things (records, mechanical checks) would you suggest I should make sure before even thinking of negotiating on that deal ??
2. Its a lease return car , any suggestion on stuff I should make sure of ?
3. Since ya all own one , what do you think of price from valuation perspective ?? considering price depreciates every year
4. Last but not least, if anyone owns 2006 330i, are there any mechanical problems I should be aware of or do they tend to have history of problem and would need more maintenance after remaing 17k of warranty (it already has 33k on it) is over on this car?

5. Last but not least , any traps I should be aware of ? I am new to Bimmer buying world so any pointer will be appreciated.


PS: I am looking to get a Bimmer under 25k(preferably out the door) , less milage ,clean and great condition. Please do let me know if you know someone who is selling it or a dealer you trust and can give me good deal on it. I am in Mountain view , CA
