Somewhere in between what KBB and Galves say in Clean/Very Good condition.

Without knowing what kind of options or packages it has ... I'd say ~ $9.5 to just under $11k for a standard spec'd model.
Older BMW's have taken a huge hit on the used market this year (except for M's)

The best thing to do is lots of research ... and average it all out. Definitely check out KBB and NADA (sometimes one is closer to your local market than the other) ... I'd also check all the used car sites - CarGurus, TrueCar (which uses Galves), AutoTrader, Cars.com and even eBay.

Edit ADDED ... Even though it has super low miles ... still expect to put money into repairs sometime in the next year ... cars don't like to sit and with that few of miles, it's been sitting. So I'd keep that in mind. For example ... I got my '07 e90 with 29k and had to replace the starter, VGC and a rear window regulator within the first 8k miles.

Ok looks like full retail value in excellent condition is 14k-14400.. not sure I've seen one with such low miles for 9k-11k. Seems like most people with low mile cars are asking almost 20k.

... sorry that price range was for a e92 328i ... didn't notice it's a 335i e92 ... so add another $2-3k ... maybe a tish more depending on package and especially if it's a 6spd.


... Yes full retail will be about $2-3k higher than a person to person sale price.

If you're willing to pay a bit more by buying from a dealership ... then its best to take both evaluations in consideration. Also check out what the trade-in price is, so you can get an idea of what they're might have into the car and what kind of room they have to work with. Obviously they'll want to make more than 50% profit on the car ... many dealerships start with 100% profit in their ask and work down from there.

Regardless of what they are asking ... definitely try to keep your final offer on the lowest end or below just retail; if you want to get a good deal. All of these prices will help you negotiate a better price and not get taken. Also take into consideration you will be paying "dealer fees" on top of the asking price, as that price is really directly part of what you are paying for the car. Tax, title and license fees are paid regardless, so they don't factor into the final evaluation.

Also ... don't be afraid to walk away if you're not getting the price you're looking for. Chances are they'll sweeten the deal if you're about to head out the door as they know that it's best to close the deal while they have you there ... since if you walk away ... they know that's it's most likely you won't return.

I bought my 07 from a dealership ... used exactly what I mentioned ... got them down about $3,500.


... And as I mentioned earlier just because you're getting a low milage car, doesn't necessarily mean it will be more reliable. Cars do not like to sit for extended periods of time ... and that car was obviously a garage queen. So if you can ... I'd figure about $500 less into your offer price.

Good luck with your purchase!


Edit: noticed you added that some are asking up to $20k. Not sure if that's for an '07 model ... as a 10 yr old 335 is going to be considerably less regardless of its low miles. People can ask what they want ... that doesn't mean they sell for that amount. It really depends on your local market and how much you're are willing to pay for super low miles. I know my the local market for my F350 is about $2k above online evaluations. So it all depends.

FWIW, I just paid $20K for mine with 21k on the clock. Original owner, 6mt, flawless car (with unused snow wheel and tires). I wanted a very low mile car that I knew the history. I was willing to pay a but of a premium for it.

Look right above my sig pic...

She is an 09' so I would expect to pay less for an 07'. My car was untouched as far as mods go, the guy was not a power hungry person. just a wall street guy that wanted a weekend car to go to the golf club with.

I have since done full boltons, wheels and minor suspension tweak's. Finding the "right" car is everything!
