56k to 59k. That is what list price. I think you can bargain 3k off; even more. Everyone is dying for a piece of business. I would bargain down to 54k.

OP is talking about a used car I believe. I think he can do much better than that, can't he?

I am talking about used. However, I did find new one with about 120 miles that was punched a few months ago for the trunk money, how much should I offer for that?
A few months ago people said high 40's to $50k for a used 08 coupe but I'm having trouble finding one now for that price with the options I want and less than 10k miles. It seems like I have to pay around $53k for one with about 6k miles.

Low 50's seems like the going rate for an 08 coupe with the options and low miles. All those low 40's prices people were throwing out in these forums were for:

- mostly sedans
- cars with suspicious natures (ie buybacks, accidents)
- strippers (got nothing inside but the good ole V8 engine)
- auction prices (which for the majority of people on forums doesn't mean jack since only dealers or people with dealer licenses can purchase)

There was that occasional 1 or 2 cars that were decent and available for under 50k due to specific circumstance of the seller to sell the car asap. But those were not the norm.

I brought my 08 a month ago. Best thing to do is find a good car you like, check it out, inspect it via PPI and then negotiate with the dealer. But keep in mind two things that changed since april: all or most new 08's were sold off the lots with big dealer incentives; and many used 08's were brought in the summer months. And with BMW producing less M3's moving forward (BMW is not stupid, they know they produced too many 08 M3's and took a bath on some of them), the market has firmed up some.

So just word of advice, don't believe all this talk of super killer deals in the 40's on 08 M3s, especially coupes. Just go find the right car for you and get the best deal you can.

Good luck with the hunt.

Go for the new '08 that you found. Aim for $48k - very low $50's for sure.

I don't think that will work for a untitled car with such low miles. I can't find a used one with low miles for that price. Although this has been sitting on their lot for almost 2 years they are still asking $62k for it,which is probably why they still have it. I was hoping for $52k. It has very single option except for the m-dct tranny.

here you go. here is couple of examples. You have to remember that you are purchasing a used car; thus options might not suit you well. What's out there is what's available.

Throw an offer at $55k 'max' OUT THE DOOR, and let them decide. If they don't bite......Just leave the deal man.

+1

That sounds like a good offer to me. Also bring up the 'punched' car item, cause you are losing some months on the 4 year warranty. GL.

What is the dealer asking?

Also:
Is there any extended warranty on it or the original warranty only? if original, how many years/months left?

Its private party and he was asking $59k. he realizes it's listed too high so I offered $53k. It has the original warranty that started in June 2008.

Tangentially, since the OP is looking at used cars, can the original owner purchase an extended warranty just prior to sale, and transfer it to the new owner?

Hi MTurhee. That sounds like a good deal. Someone on the forum sold an coupe for 52k with over double the mileage, so I think if you get that car for 53k, it would be solid.

Alright, the seller just accepted $53k for an aw coupe that was originally purchased in 6/08 with:

2400 miles
m-dct
black novillo leather
Premium
tech
ipod
enhanced premium sound
HD radio
Sat radio
19"
but no heated seats

This time, I actually get to see the car in person and I'll do a ppi

To answer your question, yes. The extended warranty can stay with the car; same with the extended service warranty-but the latter must stay with the car; can't be transferred.

GL with the buy. So far the car/option list sounds great. If you getting the PPI at a BMW dealer, check if the DCT software was updated (and ask if they can upgrade if its not).
