FBO 08 135i good price?

Hey all, I am considering purchasing a FBO 2008 135i from a local dealer and wanted some opinions. They are asking 29.9k for the following:

2008 135i with 44k miles and out of warranty. Has navigation, hi-fi sound system, premium package and is a auto with steptronic.

Add-ons include:
JB4
Injen DCI
Chargepipe w/ BOV
Catless DP's
custom dual 2.5" exhaust
OCC
FMIC

Also has a carbon fiber hood, carbon diffuser and a carbon fiber trunk. I feel 29,900 is a bit high even though its a FBO with a bunch of mods considering the mileage and missing some packages.

Mods never add a substantial amount unless it is something big like a single turbo kit or supercharger.


You can instead pickup an 08-09 on the forums here from someone who doesn't have mods on it and might be a CPO. But I would really recommend spending 25-28 and getting a CPO car.

I agree with cooler grab a CPO'd car and mod it to your liking. It's weird a dealer would sell a car with all those mods on it like that? you think the previous owner would have parted out, as cooler mentioned they dont really add value to the car.

Thanks for the inputs. I agree as well, though there are not a lot of shops around here that can do some of those mods, most likely a 2hour drive. The dealer seems to trade a lot in modded cars and can have some really high HP cars on their lot from time to time. I'm told the 135i has about 400whp which seems about right without meth.

did you take any pictures of the car? I'd like to see some of the mods. Maybe it was a forum members previous car?

I believe the previous owner was the user 135iiiiii

I think he still has some pics of the car under his profile.

That price is super high. Mods never add value, in my mind they even detract value.

I got my 09 with 29k on it 5 months ago for about that price.
