Yeah I am planning to buy a 2009 E90 with all the options (nav, heated seats, harmon kardon, comfort access) and also m-sport package for $26,500. It has 49,000 miles and no mods, but like a previous poster said I consider that a good thing.

I might look around a bit more..

Seems like an 'OK' deal... but maybe on the high side.

My brother just picked up a 2010 CPO 335i Sedan Alpine White M-Sport with Saddle Brown leather, NAV, Backup sensors with 28k miles on the clock for $33k.

I picked up a 2010 335i Sedan CPO Alpine White Sport w/ NAV and comfort Access, 35k miles on the clock for $31.5.

Both from the dealer. $28k seems a little high for a 2008 even with the low mileage.

I'd see if you could get them down to at least 26 and if not, pass.

I have seen many priced between 13k to 21k, most expensive had 30k miles on the odometer.

Cars/boats are worth want someone is willing to pay for it, so if 27k is acceptable and options/color what you want, then go for it.. I am suprised that it is CPO'ed with aftermarket parts, sounds like you may be third owner.

This may be an overkill, but have your friend at BMW do compression/leakdown test just to be sure. It may cost you $500 but will give some insight if tuning has had any impact on engine longevity.. Just an idea..

Wow thanks for all the replys guys. Ppi revealed a slight misfire in the first cylinder so hes taking it in monday to get fixed. They said it was a sensor supposedly so when its done im going to go there and talk to the service manager and make sure the mods are all covered before i buy.

Its a coupe, btw. And i believe the 08 m tech package was a dealer installed option, i could be wrong. Alot of the prices you guys are throwing out are for non msports. How much do u think the msport affects the value?

i found, while recently searching for months for my car, that coupes are going for more than sedans and manuals are higher than autos. 2009 & 2010 335 E92 ZMP MT car owners are demanding the most money.

the 2008 car you're looking at is not an M-sport car (ZMP). the dealer installed m-tech pieces should not add any value. look at similar equipped cars (condition, options & packages, mileage, CPO, etc.) to get a feel for the market. i found that autotrader and cars dot com are the best (especially cars.com - they have a great advanced search that allows you to really drill down to what you're looking for!).

here is an example of a 2009 ZMP 6M car with similar miles compared to the 2008 car you're looking at:

http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...&&aff=national

Great stance! I looked at this car earlier in the year. I can't find anything wrong with it (NICB, carfax, etc.). I think it is the lowest mileage to price ZMP car out there right now.

The ZMP package was not available until 2009. i do think that this package adds some value - if only because of the limited availability to choose from:

Option 'ZMP' M-Sport Package (E92 MY 2009-2010)

2MF 18" M Light Alloy Star-spoke wheels (Style 193M) with mixed performance tires
(18x8.0, 225/40 R18 front and 18x8.5, 255/35 R18 rear)
or 2MP 19" M Light Alloy Double-Spoke wheels (Style 225M) with mixed performance tires
(19x8.0, 225/35 R19 front and 19x9.0, 255/30 R19 rear)
481 Sport seats
710 M steering wheel
or 7XA M Sports leather steering wheel with paddle shifters
715 Aerodynamic kit
760 Shadowline exterior trim
775 Anthracite headliner
840 Increased top speed limiter

Option 'ZSP' Sport Package (E92 MY 2009-2010):

2K6 Light alloy wheels V-spoke style 342 with mixed tyres
(18x8.0, 225/40 18 front and 18x8.5, 255/35 18 rear)
or 2R4 19" wheels w/performance tires (style 230)
(19x8.0, 225/35 R19 front and 19x9.0, 255/30 R19 rear)
481 Sport seats
760 Shadowline exterior trim
840 Increased top speed limiter

Yeah ask the buyer if you can take it to a bmw certified shop just to check it out and make sure everything is good.

I guess that's why some people finance because they don't have that luxury. I wouldn't particularly want to finance a car either but I can understand why some do.

Technically, rates as low as they are make financing a great option. You can get used car loans at 1.99%, chances are you will earn more than that with a balanced asset allocation.

buyers are there..

I have a 08 m tech coupe 335 and have been offered cash $30, 000 several times because it has 22K miles on it. It has saddle interior with white exterior.

So it all depends, some people are obsessed with the n54 engine.

I personally would pay 10-15% percent more to get the exact car I want...
