Trying to find a 07-09 335i 6 speed

Hey all,

I've been trying to find a 07-09 335i or 335xi 6 speed but seem to find them all extremely high priced here in Seattle/Washington.

Is it just this area or should I be expecting to find these cars for around mid to high 20's with decent mileage? (20-30k)

For example, if you follow this cars.com link, you'll see that most of the cars there are pre-owned, some CPO, most dealerships, and the cars range from low 30's to high 30's, with most cars having 30-40k miles on them.

I see lots of posts on here with people snagging CPO's for around high 20's with tax, is it unreasonable to expect getting slightly higher prices or is the manual config really costing me that much more?

I really want to get an 07-09 335i in 6MT, but man, been looking for a few months and the price seems to stay around that mark.

Thoughts?

Thanks all

Keep looking, eventually you will come across something you like. Be willing to make sacrifices though, in that I mean color, options, etc. Its not easy to find a 335i in manual let alone a car with the exact options you desire. Sometimes a compromise has to be reached. Don't give up though. You will really cherish the car once you get in and drive.

Thanks.

Yeah, at this point, I'm not being too particular about the packages, options and color with the car.

I seem to see a lot of space gray and blacks right now, but the only thing is that most of them are high mileage and asking for 30k~ for an 6 spd manual.

Argh, if only I wanted an auto 335i There'd be a lot to choose from and I could even have my #1 color choice, alpine white.

Guess the waiting game continues..!

A sedan with a manual is just a rare proposition...

Got an offer for $30k, E90 335xi, 21k miles. (Out the door: 33.6K)

Clean carfax, 1 owner.

Sport, Premium, Cold Weather.

Color isn't my first choice, but I'm like Monaco Blue.

CPO as well from an authorized dealer.

I'm definitely hopping on it since it seems like a pretty damn good deal.

silver with terra? Haven't seen that one yet, sounds nice though! When I traded in my 6MT E90 I had a dealer tell me that it would sit on the lot forever because no one wants a 335i with a manual transmission. I LOL'd.
