What?s my 335i worth?

Hey everyone, coming to you to get an idea of what my car is worth. It?s a 2007 335i coupe with white exterior and black interior. It has the sport package with the manual transmission which I know is pretty rare. It has the brushed aluminum trim also. 130k miles on it but it literally runs like brand new and shifts like butter. With your eyes closed you would feel that it?s a brand new car. I bought the car a few months ago for my 100 miles round trip daily commute but I will soon be buying a new m2 because I no longer need to travel that kind of distance. It?s a beautiful car all in all. If anyone could give me an idea of what my specific spec?d car is going for I would really appreciate it. Thank you! Here are the few mods it has and some of the maintenance done in the past 3k miles as well as some pictures.

Maintenance
-walnut shell blasting
-oil filter housing gasket
-oil cooler housing gasket
-brand new BMW OEM 335is clutch kit
-oil change, transmission fluid flush, and all new plugs and coils

Modification
-black kidney grilles
-bmw performance shift know with alcantara shift boot
-jb4 tuner
-catless downpipes
-hks blowoff valve

It seems as though these cars sell for much more than what the book says so it?s pretty much irrelevant

You will never get an exact value only a range by researching various sites like KBB, NADA, Carmax, Autotrader, etc, etc. Never go to the dealer to see how much they will low ball you if you trade, unless you want to get a good laugh.

I would say that you're at the bottom end because of the lack of options (Nav, PDC, ect..), high miles, and that the car has been modified. 7K would be a fair guess considering what's on the market.

It's a shame how much these cars have devalued given the performance they are capable of. But yeah, i'd say around 7k give or take. Given it is modified, unless you are willing to go back to stock, it will take longer(usually) to find the right buyer. Especially if you are asking a premium for the modifications over the stock value of the car.

Given you just put a clutch in it I would keep it. It's going to be faster than your M2 with the N55 if that matters at all. Also, you are moving on to a slower, heavier, and considerably more expensive car.

Beautiful car, and obviously well maintained. However, it's been my own experience that you only get a fraction of the original cost of the mods back, if anything.

The exception to this would be finding a fellow enthusiast who can appreciate what you have done to the car. It's hard to say what the exact value is since I don't know all the options on the car, but my estimates would be:

Dealer trade in: $5-6K
Private party: $7-8K

The above estimates are based on KBB (I know, not always accurate; for example you see well maintained low mileage E39 M5s often sell for significantly more than their KBB value.) If you can find someone who is looking for your specific car or something close to it, and can appreciate the modifications and maintenance you have put into the car, I think you could do better than $8K.

I'm a bit confused. You are asking the cars value, yet you purchased the car "a few months ago"? How much did you pay for it? Well, since you were a recent comparable sale, I would say that whatever you paid for it, would be market price.

I would ask 10K for it. white/black 6 spd coupe w/ sports package is harder to find than the average IMO.

Mods aren?t a big deal I can just take them off. Manual transmission are worth a lot more in my area because there are so few. It was the only one on Craigslist at the time and I was lucky enough to snatch it up

335is around here are between 5-8k. Id never pay more than 8500 for an old e90. You are going to be disappointed in what you get for it after putting a new clutch in it.

Guys all over ask $10k or better for 07 or 08 cars with well over 100k miles. They never actually sell for that. Based on your year, mileage, and condition, you're in the $7k-$8k range. I sold a clean 2007 335i sedan with 107 on it for $7k.
The concern over mods is that the car was pounded. Obviously the buyer could swap back to stock, but that's not the point. Modded cars tend to get thrashed, that reduces the value.

If you know how to check a car , you feel confident to troubleshoot and repair a possible future issue and if you know the car well enough there absolutely nothing wrong with buying a modded car. You'll be savings 1000s in parts / labour

Also the guys that usually mods their cars are the ones that take care of their cars the most and the ones that keep on top of the maintenance schedule and repairs . On the contrary a lot of the stock cars out there are driven hard , maintenance schedule is ignored because people just do not care, its just a car that will get replace in 3-5 years

This rule does not apply to all , but to most

If anything guys that are afraid to buy modded cars are the ones that have little idea about mods or about the car itself or about doing the work themselves if something breaks

To me there is nothing wrong with a lightly or even medium modded car, maybe a heavily modded car may be a bit scary , but not because there is something wrong with them , just because I ll be the first one to admit , I do not know enough about these cars to fix them myself.

Op in the general market your car is probably worth 7-8 k

but you may get that right buyer that would appreciate the mods you have and you may get the 9-10k you are looking for , however this may take a lot longer to sell. It all depends on how fast you want to get rid of it and if you want to wait for the right buyer
