It was bone stock and the it have only had 1 owner who was also one of the owners of the dealership who traveled every week fom tampa to jacksonville (which explained the high miles) he wanted 15.5k for it with 110k miles but I talked him down to 14k cash(took a lot of persistency) and purchased a warranty for 5yr or 100k for about $1300 and honestly to this day I haven't looked back. Sure its higher mileage but the car was mint..and they way the miles are put on the car and the maintainace has been done plays a big part when its higher mileage. I recently had it appraised at the automall where I work and they offered 13.5k which is pretty good for trading it in considering what i paid. In your case i would suggest you try and research all the background info you can before dismissing but if the car was heavily modified performance wise I would think it twice. personally to me getting my e92 was a huge upgrade and now with the mods I've put on it I def don't miss my e46 but I lucked out that even tho the mileage was high it was bone stock and driven long distances by a 65yr old

Do you mind sharing where you found that warranty for $1300 for 5years????
THANKS !!! I need a new warranty...

I got it from the dealership but its called reliable protection plus. It may be a little more because he said I only charged me what dealerships get it for but its great and it offers roadside assistance and free towing for up to like 150miles

Run away! I'm planning to get rid of mine when it gets to about 75k.

As a side note, the rate of depreciation on these cars is nuts!

2007 BMW 335i $14,900 Tampa, FL

I have the following car for $14,900. Yes it has 122K miles, but it has new turbos, new brakes, and new yokohamas. Plus it has a $3500 front subframe replace that others will need and not covered by BMW. I have it in Kansas now but moving to Tampa, FL in one week. This is actually a newer car than many with less miles and a better price too! keslergroup@gmail.com

Silver, 2007 BMW 335i with every conceiveable option except GPS. Twin turbos, six speed automatic, paddle shifter, nearly new yokohamas, new brakes, new turbos, sport package, sunroof, black leather, high end stereo, Bluetooth, XM Radio, and much more. 122,000 highway miles. BMW dealer cared for and all work up to date. This is a beautiful automobile in superb condition. Driven by a 65 year old man, it has never seen redline. Priced way below book for quick sale. If no pictures here, I can email them. Whatever, the car has one small seat tear in a place that is not highly visible, some wheel scrapes, and is otherwise nearly perfect. Call 512 650 6820

Why you getting rid of it at only 75k? And depreciation means good deals on used ones right
