2009 e90 335i

I'm looking at a 2009 335i, and am hoping for some input on a reasonable target price.
  • 35,000 miles
  • manual transmission
  • premium package
  • sport package
  • cold weather package
  • NO xDrive
  • NO iDrive
  • Private seller, seller is 2nd owner
  • has 2 years of CPO left
  • has 2 years left of maintenance service plan
  • clean Carfax and AutoCheck
  • has just a couple of very small & dings -- the kind that are fairly tough to see even after they've been pointed out to you, and not noticeable at all from more than a few feet away
  • Tires are a plus and minus: Will need new summer tires very soon, but includes a set of Blizzack ws60s mounted on a spare set of wheels (which should have at least a couple of winters left in them)
Seller is asking $31,000. Car has been on the market for about a week. Gave it a test drive and all seems well.

Any input is appreciated!

Seems a bit high, that's what I paid for my loaded E92 M-sport coupe about a year ago and it had half the mileage.

Thanks for the confirmation, I thought it was on the high side as well. The question is, how much too high? KBB prices are a bit tough to go by on this, b/c it is kinda a mix of CPO and private seller given that it has two years of CPO and maintenance that will transfer to the buyer. And has some other offsetting features, such as worn summer tires but includes winter tires and rims. So I'm having more difficulty judging price on this than some others that I've seen.

Would $28k or $29k be reasonable targets? I know I can always throw a low number out there and see if the seller bites, but I prefer to start my bidding with something close to reasonable. In my experience, coming in way too low to start with tends to be counterproductive. But, I obviously don't want to offer more than necessary either.

I bought roughly the same car three weeks ago from a dealer. Mine didn't have cold weather, but it has idrive/nav and automatic, and was $26,900.

NO nav, manual and private seller I would be looking at low 26's or 25's.

Thanks for the input. The seller won't budge below $29k, which is just too high for this car, so I continue my search...

Yeah, move on. That's basically full retail price.
