What would you ask? Valuation guidance.

I've had a look at both the BMW AUC site,and Autotrader,and there's not a lot to compare against,so what sort of money would you be asking for this:

33,100 mls
1 yrs MOT from Nov 2012
5mths road tax
Full BMW service history,
Azurite Black Metallic paint
Cream Beige Dakota leather

Sun protection glass
M light-alloy wheels double spoke 225M

Extended warranty?

My gut feel is about £17k-18k.

No extended warranty,although that's easily organised.
It's not something I previously considered,as the car was extensively modified,and the extended warranty would be a waste of money.

I was hoping,perhaps naively, for a bit more than 18K

I think more like 20-22. Had the ideal spec without anything 'over and above', it's a D which adds way more onto an I than most of us I owners want to admit and it is one of very few with reasonable mileage.

If it has the newer nav (which I don't suppose it will) then mores the better, but just having it will be enough for most buyers.

Parker's guide says £18,700 before you add options.

I would reckon 17-18k is not a bad shout, perhaps even a bit optimistic. As we know options count for very little in real money terms but perhaps attract a buyer. Nav is one of the few exceptions which of course does add a bit of money. Wouldn't bother listing the items in your list above which are standard equipment, people get bored reading a list and can miss out on the things that are genuine extras that distinguish your car.

The market will decide its worth anyway once you post it up.

BMW approved cars of similar age/mileage going for £21k - with discounts, warranty and Part Exchange yours will be worth £2k less in my opinion.

But yours is a very high spec in a desirable colour combo, £20k might be about right.

It was ex-BMW,so has a nice spec,and as you say,has what are the most desirable options.
It does have the newer sat nav,fortunately the car was at the very beginning of the manufacturing line that benefitted from this newer system.

I was looking at around 20-21K in honesty,based on what I had managed to find to compare against.

I'd agree in part about the list,however not everyone is fully up to speed on what's an option or standard equipment on a 335D M Sport,the ad,when I've arrived at a reasonable price will go on Autotrader,where the peeps are not always as knowledgeable as the members on here.

Thanks for the input so far Guys,perhaps I could ask this question:

What amount of mark up would you expect a BMW dealer to put on a car that he had bought outright,no p/ex?

I won't mention a figure I've been offered,as I don't want to influence any answers.

Thanks

Would Expect a Main Dealer to Steal it of you and have about £4K-£5K Profit in it

£21k would be pushing it for a private sale. £19k - £20k would be more like it - with that spec and mileage.

I would expect a dealer to put and asking price of £3k - £4k on top of what he paid you for it.

Dealer will firstly factor in fictional average refurb costs of £1500, if your car doesn't need refurb then thats extra profit. Then they would seek about 20% on top of that.

Therefore say they give you 16k for your car, that turns into a 21k asking price, they drop a bit off this but if they have saved on refurb its smiles all the way. If it sits around a while this again eats into their profit in extra depreciation but again there is plenty of room to move.

To be fair though, a car retaining 45% of its value after over 4 years isn't bad.

Ian,

There have been some real good feedback above, so i cant really add to that. But I will say is, If your selling privately, many people go to view the car and then are sold on both the car and the buyer. Your a nice guy and therefore coupling your nature and that the fact your not in a rush you might aswell start high in your pricing.

Why not? Good quality well looked after cars deserve a premium.

All the best mate.
