GD it! I'm so confused. Need help and guidance from the Force here!

OK... day 4 of my dilemma. Spoke to the non-Bimmer dealer today and they gave me better financing than I expected. I told the guy I needed him to do better on his car or on my trade. He says, "I've done enough already and you are getting a good deal. If you want the car, let me know". I say... OK.

The deal as it sits: 2006 330i without Sports Package (don't care... I know I know... wimp!) Completely loaded with everything else. 25K on it. 8 months left on 4/50 warranty. In slight fender bender a year and half ago, no airbag depl., no frame damage. Fixed by BMW. Looks flawless. Negotiated brand new set of Ultra HP all-seasons in the deal. $22,700

My biggest concern: What to do come 9 months from now when I have no warranty. Aftermarket? Roll the dice with no warranty and baby the car? Oye! What to do!?

Thoughts and opinions are SO VERY MUCH appreciated.

Not that good of a deal considering prior damage ,mileage and comparatively limited tuning options

Prior damage? Negatory.

I'd pass. He should be begging you to buy his used car when dealers can't even sell new cars.

Pass, too much baggage and only 8 months left on the warranty. You can find better deals. Be patient and you'll be happier in the end.

Wait 2 weeks and BMW will improve incentives on CPO'ed cars, or bring cheap money to the '07s... My $0.02
