I got a loaded 08 E90 with 8K miles for 46k cash in June. Tell him he better have put at least $4k of cash in the trunk too. A good used car profit for a dealer should be about $500.

Keep offering the low $40s price +$500, offer it once a week or so, I bet you someone will bite after 2 weeks. But you have to be persistent and say the same offer every time, "that you're the same guy from last week and you have cash on hand to do the deal".
