Is this a good deal?

6 posts in this topic

Friend just bought a car...

I found a 2000 titanium silver 328ci for 15000 before tax.

It’s an auto, and it has some issues.

I test drove it, and it drives fine, but the side marker light on one side is broken, the BMW badge is a little worn, and there’s a full size spare on the back right side.

The ABS warning light is on, as well as the traction control light, and the speedometer doesn’t work.

I included in writing in the purchase agreement that the dealer would fix the light, the tire, and all the warning lights.

I forgot to include the speedometer, and I’ll call him today and get him to fax over an agreement to fix this too.

I put a 1000 deposit through my credit card, but I guess I can always chargeback, hopefully.

It’s a nice car…I’d prefer standard, but I couldn’t find one.

Good deal IF all the issues are fixed permanently.

No! I found many 02s and 03s for about 18k-22k with low miles, but they were 330ci's. The newer ones are alot cheaper for insurance too. They were in very good condition.

For what it's worth an auto HURTS a BMW's resale.

It's an oxymoron to have a 3-series slushbox.

Remember - not that it makes as big a difference now, but those are Canadian dollars.
