I am looking at purchasing a used BMW 330Ci. I am having it looked over by my mechanic but the questions is that the dealer wants to apply a premium price to the car.
It is a 2001 with 123000 miles on it, manual transmission. Doing some research based on Edmunds the price it gave me with the all the options was around 7000, the dealer is asking 10,700 for it. Now I have seen some BMW 325i - roughly in the same year range (2001 - 2004) manual transmission with less miles (75,000 - 90,000) for round 8,500 to 9700. I understand that these are not apples to apples here - just looking to get the best bet for my money
So the questions is - being a first time BMW owner - is really worth the extra money for the 330Ci vs a 325i. Part of my view is that the less mileage 325i will last longer - the mileage difference is almost 3 years based on normal use.
