need help asap! in the market 08 335xi

Hey guys,

Im in the market for an 08 335xi. I have found one, coupe, cold weather, premium, navigation, sport packages. It is listed at 31,415 and has 46,xxx miles.

My main concern is 46,xxx miles. This car is certified pre-owned, but what specifically does that mean for BMW? I'm really concerned with the reliability of the vehicle.

I means that if the car breaks down then they will fix it. It is a extended warranty from BMW. I think its 6yrs or 100,000 miles, it does not include any maintenance on it.

IMO its a little over priced but definitely a solid car. I bought my 09 xi for 26.5 in November at a dealers auction, so no warranty, with 51k and it is still running like a beauty.

Best money I have EVER spent.

Just in case I went out and got an extended warranty for about 2k.

6 years /100k from when? when the vehicle was built or when they put the stamp on it. so if its an 08, 2014 or 100k miles whichever comes first? 2014 is approaching quickly...

all in 28.5 then. I have those same options as you listed minus Nav, which I do not care for, but don't forget your paying 3k more for a car that is 1yr older even though you have 5k less miles.

Guess Ill try haggling with the price. Pretty difficult to find a nice fully loaded 335 with CPO from bmw. even the AWD helps big time. thanks everyone for the input!

How much is the CPO warranty additional? 2kish? how many miles did u have.

this one has a clean carfax! one owner for its whole lifespan!

what do you think? chase it?

Honestly I would but I would try to haggle the price down a lil bit...test drive it and inspect it to see if it was ever modded. Most likely it was a lease return since there was one owner as mine was, but since it was over 50k and out of factory warranty BMW financial decided to auction it off instead of CPO'ing the car.

Mine I purchased from an Auction out of state. 09 335xi N54 Auto, Comfort, Sport 49k on the odometer. $22500. It has been in an accident, I have all the records including police report of what happnened and what the body shop did. Rare case maybe, steal it was for me. I didnt want the Idrive for my own reasons. This is a rare case of pricing, but you should get an 08 for cheaper.
