--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Long time BMW owner (Roadfly Mostly) but new to this forum as I am looking to buy an E90 or E92. If you've got something that is in Illinois or a state touching Illinois please E-mail me or post here(PM won't work untill I have done 5?) Located in Chicago, but will take a day trip for the right car.

Looking at 325I with 44,000 miles this week in WI, but is missing leather and a seller that states he is firm at $21,000 bone stock? :confused2:
seems a bit high with only sport and heated seats


Would prefer <50k miles.

Must be manual (all we own)

Rear wheel drive is prefered.

Not to picky on colors but condition is what is important.

Thanks for taking a look.

I'm looking for the same basically... That base 325 sounds about 2-3k over priced, IMO. The low mileage is allowing them to command a premium and I get that, but I think the lack of buyers will make them realize they aren't going to get that. It is the first model year of what's very soon to be the last generation...reality check. For 19 I bet it'd move

Good luck!

Lightbulb Thanks to all that responded, I was feeling a little invisible for a while there

tlow98- Thanks for your imput. I to believe he is shooting way to high. In fantastic condition with leather I believe it could be at $20,000. Looking at it Wed. Anything I should look for specific to the E90? Known Maladies/problems?


k3m0-330i- Thanks also for responding. I have seen your pics and the mods are exactly what I hope to be doing to an E90 when I find the right one. It's just the miles are over what I am comfortable with. Wish you good luck with the sale as yours is fantastic looking!!

As a side note, If you do part out the wheels I want to be first in line especialy if I strike the right price for the white one.


Nesta028- appreciate the heads up on your 335I. Have to stick with my rule of no autos and no turbos. Time will tell but, I ran my 97 E36 M3 for 10 years and to 155,000 miles before I sold it off to it's new owner last month. Never had any major work to the drive, vanos or engine besides the clutch pad and preventative maintance on the cooling system. (wife did kill a wheel and a strut running her up on a curb at 45 Mph but that doesn't count)


BtW Thanks to all that responded, I was feeling a little invisible for a while there.

I think my buddy would sell his 325i for 19,000 if you'd come down to SF. He has under 50k miles on his car. Modded with a kersher front bumper + GTR style hood, and everything else is stock.

Silver on black,
Navi, heated seats, its loaded, but matic

Arrow Still looking for the one-

k3m0-330i- Even though I am sure it runs great can't break my rule of over 50K

Seeing the stick in WI Tommorrow hopefully it is clean. Anyone else got something that fits the bill?

WI 325I had no paint work but had bad wear on the drivers side bottom bolster (cracking) in the black leatherette. Clutch chater on engagement which is telling me new clutch pad will be needed soon at the very least. He was also standing firm with his price. 44,000 miles no premium. Has only Xenons, sport, winter, and MT.

Also took a stab in the dark with Perilo BMW (chicago) on an 08 Blue on Red 328 sport 33,000 miles which they have on E-bay. Drove very well but hood, right fender and front bumper had fair to poor paint work (confirmed with my paint gauge... Like AMEX, never leave home without it). Front tires had excessive wear to the outside and would need replacement along with a disturbing musty smell inside. Asking $27999.00 LOL:. Want to buy, but not that badly.

So it looks like the search continues. Anyone?

I've been by that Perillo dealership as well. Highway robbery for the most part and I hate that they don't price the used cars in their respective windows. You have to ask. Lame.

325 needs a clutch ..lololol. That guy is crazy. Trade in at a dealer is prolly like 14 on that car. Bolster wear on Leatherette? fat ass, huh?

good luck!

eaglesfan83-

Thanks for the heads up. Great looking car and exactly what I am looking for, but out of my modest price range. Looking to stay under the $24,000 mark. It kills me but the search continues. Good luck with sale, you are sure to make some new owner very happy !

Red face Looking > yes really

Just missed the following car at a porsche dealer in Ohio 6 hours away from Chicago-

2006 Black on Black 330I 9,600 miles, 1 owner 6 speed, with premium (leather), Sport, Winter packages, and Xenon lights. Car sold for $23,700 as confirmed by the sales manager after being listed for 2 weeks (14 days).

While I am sure your car is very clean, in my humble opinion you are asking dealer price or higher as substantiated by the above example. You may very well find the right buyer that is looking for that exact color combo and hope you do. But as for me (partly due to personal opinion) the color, and limited options would have me offering quite a bit less than your asking price.

Since I have sold cars myself, I try not to waste my time or a sellers time. As your post originated a little over a week ago with an asking price of $28,000 and as I am not a 20 minute drive away, I decided not to engage you and be branded a "low baller" or "tire kicker" which I would hope you can appreciate.

If you are willing to come down some on the price than please PM me. Otherwise, I wish you all the best in finding a buyer that will appreciate your very clean example at the price you are asking

Prefer 07 08 E92 Manual Trans only, Sport a must, less than 35K miles. In Chicago, but will look in states touching Illinios.
