Fair price for this car

Been looking for a new daily to compliment the GTR. Looking at 335 or new S4. Previously owned many Audis and a few M3s. I would swap the wheels and exhaust tips but everything else is spec'd just as I would like

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-3...fCarsQ5fTrucks


I'd like to make them an offer.

Let me know. Thanks

try 40, which is pretty low, usually people say mods bring down the price a dealer will give you for a car so maybe you can be like well i would have to change the wheels etc

Offer something slightly below a fair price for an unmodified version of the car. You can be sure this dealer did not pay fair market value for the car because it surely came to them as a trade in or they bought it at a dealers auction. You should not pay them for any of the mods on the car. As the other poster said, mods lower the value of the car, for obvious reasons related to risk and reliability, as well as the presumed driving habits of the owner who modified it.

Remember, driving the car off the lot drops its value $5K-7K.

I offered them 40,500 yesterday and they said no way. They think they will sell it close to their asking price. We'll see. I want the car if they will sell it reasonably. If anyone is near there let me know

You could buy a new one for less then they are asking for that. I think the low forties is a reasonable offer.
