Buying a E92 Need Help

I am buying a very good condition 2011 white E92 from a local. The car has all packages and it has 60k miles on it. The car has rod bearing fix, mp exhaust, accuator fix.

Can someone let me know what would be a good price to offer for this car?

What's are they asking for it, and any reason not to simply accept that price?

I am more concerned about the actual condition of the car because once you get it you will want to keep it a long time. Be sure to get the shop receipt for r/b and t/a replacements. Other forum members have been burned with previous claimed r/b replacement. Study the carfax for oil changes, especially the one at 1,000 miles (break in). Are tires a premium brand. Red flag for me if an owner puts on junk tires. Pricing has a wide range- beyond my educated guess.

Thanks. It seems that e92 retains value better than f82. My moded 2015 f82 only worth 40k.

I think $35k is high given mileage and DCT, but comp and I love mineral white!

End of the day if you love it, it's $1k...

Sorry to hijack your thread OP. I am in a similar boat and found a 09 E92 coupe for about $21K. No RB or TA done to it and it has about 75K miles. The rear was in a minor accident but just bumper damage.

You think offering $21K is reasonable, before negotiating? It has some mods on it as well.

I paid $36k two years ago for mine with lower miles but no RBs done. I'd pay that again (and probably more) in a heartbeat. Go for it!

I paid $31k for mine with 42,700 mi back in September. Did not have RB, TA, or MP exhaust. Everything else the same (full option, very clean, ZCP, DCT, carbon roof). I suppose if you add on the costs to do RB and TAs you get close to $35k. Still seems high to me. I would try and get them down to $32,500.

Yap, I second that. I definitely look at tires when I bought a car period. Especially on luxury or sports car. The standard tire is OEM Conti, then Michelin PS/PS4S, Goodyear eagle or Brigestone.

I also second that. To be devil advocate compare it to when I bought my car just so you can gage it.

2013 E92 ZCP DCT CF Nav. w/10K miles for $35k just for the car w.out tax etc.
hence no bearing done or TA done but I bought an extended warranty that cover bumper to bumper.
Maintenance check, clean Carfax basically a unicorn.

At the end of the day milage count and you car is $12k overprice. If it includes warranty like mine which is equal to +60K miles bumper to bumper than Its a good deal. Other than that, it is overpriced.

This right here. Plus, My car is in California so there's no flood or snow. Which is make a huge different. You also have to calculate where the car is located. Any other mods? I like to have a stock original car hence I waited for 4+ years to get mine.
