335i DCT prices

I'm in the market for a nice 335i convertible, would really like DCT as had that in my last couple of M3's (albeit the M version).

They seem quite rare, I'm not sure of values but they don't seem that far off the M3 values.

What's peoples views on the price of this:

Yes, it's a very nice car with everything I would like bar Logic 7, but I'm not up to speed on prices, seems like M3 money or as that where they are?

I thought it was just a tad pricey but not many DCT verts out there to compare against, plus it's an individual so probably adds a little to the price. If I didn't want a vert I'd have another M3 in a heartbeat...

The leather in that is amazing it is a well specced example except for the L7. I have been considering buying that car, but with my current mileage and parking situation I'd just spend my time worrying over it. It's a bit too special for a daily driver and I'd end up murdering someone in a car park!

As stated, being an individual car does pump the price up! Personally I would want an LCI one for that money

Being a 2010, it will be an LCi car.

Looks stunning. The guy selling it gets most of his stock from local BMW dealers to him and is either an ex-BMW salesman or as near as dammit. He often has some high end stock in. I know because I was looking at an E90 M3 he had in a couple of years back.

Price wise it's a little high, but not excessively. At a dealer it would be 3-4k more. You can warrant that with Mondial if needed. My 335i costs 35 a month for the comprehensive warranty.

The seller could also learn how to spell Aegean.

Old style bumpers and lights, not a LCI IMO

My E93 is a 2010 but build date is Sept 2009 and is a N54, pre-LCI.

It's a bit funny when it's on the cusp like that as certain features or bits of trim seem to creep in.

Looks like a decent price but isn't a bargain. I got mine with a similar spec, 335i DCT m-sport highline for a fair bit cheaper than that albeit with 50k miles on the clock.

For me, it was acceptable to get a car with the spec and options I wanted.

Just looked at the pics again, one glance at the engine bay and that's 100%, without question, N54 pre-LCI.

It's Pre-LCI. But some late production Pre-LCI got the elephant ears (Wing mirrors). I've yet to see Pre-LCI have the updated clusters or bumpers though.

It's a great example and whoever gets it will be very happy with it, especially that interior.

Cheers Matt, you keeping well?

I think I would prefer the N54 engine anyway but I do think it's a little step but a very nice vert..

I think I may go for a coupe instead as there is more choice out there, still fancy DCT over Auto.

DCT is nice, but no where near worth that much. Not when early 335i coupes can be had for <10K easily. Main benefit of LCI I can see is CIC sat nav, even than retrofit prices of CIC units have come tumbling down to well under 1K, and you could go the whole way and get NDT.

Cheers, I really like the later iDrive so wouldn't consider an older version, hear what your saying about DCT, I do like the ability to change via paddle shifts and hold the revs, perhaps not a deal breaker though.

You can retrofit the newer sat Nav system into a pre-LCI car....Infact you can fit the sat Nav from the F30 into a pre-LCI E90....It will workout cheaper.

Didn't realise that the E93 LCi lagged so far behind the E90 and E91. Still, every day is a school day.

All good here thanks mate. Enjoying the delights of an N54 myself, but in baby wagon spec! It's a cracking engine in all seriousness, and I think that E93 might be a great buy at the right price.

Cool... I'm not sure on the E93, just too expensive, plus I would want to part ex my A6 le mans so might not get the best deal... will see what the guy says.
