Not sure if this is correct but will a BMW dealer buy a car off you, I dont mean part exchange I mean literally buy the car off you?

Yes, but expect to get at least 10% less than by selling it yourself. And put it back to stock first.

Well thats what I would like to know, lets say I want to sell my car, ofcourse I can sell it privately but will BMW dealers offer a price to buy it off me and then sell on? Like part exchange but no exchange just money

yes ofcourse they will buy it from you but at a knock down price.

I'm no dealership buyer but my guess would be as follows

Take a used car selling for 30K at dealer.
You may sell this privately for 27-28k
Part ex from dealer you only get 25-26K
Straight buy with no pex they may only give you 24-25K

Don't see why you wouldn't get Part Ex money. Those figures are based on the dealer having profit in the car anyway.

The main problem would be if your car is slower moving stock. i.e. something slightly out of the ordinary.

Yep probably about 4k less than they would retail it for, not a great deal of good used stock around so try a few buyers from different groups see how you get on nothing to loose.

As stated to the left just got another 335i. There was too long a wait to get a new S5. It was something like six months. Took me 2-3 months to get the 335i as BMW had cut back on producing six cylinder engines.

He had to go with a 335. Othewise he'd have to change his username. Welcome back, Dougie. It's good to hear you're still around.

I suspect they'll give you about 20% less than if you sold it yourself - at least.

Look at what similar cars are retailing for and take 4k of that.

if you dont cant sell it privately (best option) then ring a few dealers for prices , sometimes the difference between what different dealers offer can be significant.

Of the 3 BMW's I've sold, only one was part exchanged - the M3.

The 335i was sold to Sytner who gave a very good price (who eventually had it for sale for just 700 more than they gave me for it) and the M6 was sold to Inchcape who still have it for sale for 1k LESS than they paid me for it (so I got a good price on that one too!)

PM Darren Edwards, Sytner will have buyers who you will be able to speak to.

Sometimes you can be lucky if a dealer knows someone who is looking for the car you are selling. You'll get a better price as they know they won't be holding onto the car for 'x' months. As I say, you have to be lucky!!!

I tried a load of dealers when trying to shift the 350Z but no one was buying. A couple of dealers said that they were crying out for 350Z R'sters but 'the management' had made a blanket decision to not buy any stock - frustrating to say the least.

I'd only use this option as a last resort but make a few calls as you never know...
