Thoughts on this 2011 335i

About a year and a half ago I picked up a 2013 528i xdrive CPO because I was looking for something a bit more comfortable for my 45 mile each-way drive to work. Then I changed jobs and now drive about 1 mile to work and back. I am looking to downgrade due to mileage and lower my monthly cost as I am barely driving now. I have been looking at 2011 and newer 3 series in my area. I wanted to see what anyone thought of this 2011 335i that looks like it was recently traded in at a dealer that is relatively close to me. My goal for this new car is to stay under $20K, under 75K miles. I have 3 kids, so I prefer something with 3 rear seats, but it is not a deal breaker as we usually take my wife's Enclave when we travel as a family.

Do you all think it is worth the asking cost? Is it a smarter decision to go for something in the 2013-14 320/328 models for the same price? I am just looking for some advise here. Thanks!

The E92 does not have three rear seats.

I think this one's a stick, m-sport, HK (Non-Nav) car. It would have been a great deal back when I was looking. I'm not sure if the exhaust is stock from the pictures.

You'll need to test drive to see what you would like. This N55 is significantly faster than a 320/328. Do you want a coupe or sedan?

I am aware about the rear seats and it really isn't a big deal. I have always had sedans as my kids were younger, but now that my oldest can ride up front, I really don't need a sedan anymore, so either coupe or sedan works really. I just don't know how I feel about spending around 20K on a car that is 7 years old (ant 2 years older than my current car) when I can get a 2014 320i for around the same money. I know it wont have the fun factor this one does, but it will have newer technology (iDrive, rear camera, pdc) and improvements, etc.

The F30 and E92 are significantly different platforms and different driving experiences. You can get iDrive, Rear Camera and PDC in the E92 LCI. The F30 is significantly larger and drives differently.

I would definitely recommend test driving the one you linked. There is something very special about driving a stick shift E92 335.

Sedan's will tend to run cheaper than the coupe, but are harder to find in stick. You may be able to get close to 20 with a 2012 F30 335.

And I am sure it is much different than my current F10. Hopefully I can make some time to go and give this one a test drive. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Is a service history available? I'm always willing to pay a premium for proof the miles were cared for instead of abused.
