Pricing Advice for a 2009 E90 w/ 27k miles...

I went to look at this M this week and wanted some advice on pricing. Overall, the car is in good shape. The car does not have an OEM exhaust on it and some other non-OEM mods (aftermarket CF trim on the dash only, etc.) on it with a clear bra thats in pretty bad shape.

The dealer is asking 54K for it but is that a fair price? Seems on the very high end of what 09s are going for... I was thinking its worth more in the high 40s...

Any advice would be appreciated...

I would think for that price it should be CPO, it still seems a bit high.

it is decent. i mean it is not bad. just that exhaust looks weird.
I would hit them up with 49k, and see how much they settle.. or better yet, try 48.
Good luck

Cool. I'll ask n see if I can get the oem exhaust, an ext warranty and high 40s. Seems like a good starting point.

Is there a reason why a dealer doesnt CPO a car before putting it up for sale? Are 09s just too new at this point to CPO or can it be other reasons?

probably. If they feel that they can cut corners, or if the car has half the life of the warranty, then, they won't bother with CPOing the car.
It all comes down to how much they invested in the car: from trade-in, to fixing little nig nags. If the used car manager feels they invested goula amount of money, then they won't CPO the car; it is all about competition and maintaining the price of the vehicle based on KBB.
I hope that helps

OP, looks like they dropped the price to 52k. You should be able to get in the high 40's now.

Thanks guys... High 40s and CPO might be a decent deal...

Here is what it has:
Tech Pkg
DCT
19s
Moonroof
Split fold down rear seats
Park Distance
Alarm
Shadowline Trim
Hi Fi sound system (just the regular system?)
Auto Headlights
Comfort Access

Now the negatives:
Has a Megan exhaust
Non OEM carbon trim on the dash
Horrible Clear Bra installation
No Cold Weather or Premium

Does that mean that there is no Bluetooth or the 10-way seats or is the "Adjustable seat width/lumbar" the ones that come with the Prem pkg?

MSRP was 66.8k so its not too loaded it seems...

O damn. That is the same car. I think I'll pass and keep looking. Seems prett bare bones even for high 40s and those miles.

With an MSRP of 66.8k, it appears to have everything significant except cold weather package(fold down seat was included on its own), premium sound and extended leather.
