Give them a price you're willing to pay. The worst they can do is say no.

Price is on the high side. I bought my wife's 2011 135i with around 6K miles for that price.

Pics plus spec here:

Thanks for the tip. The other one has more options; plus it'd be CPO, which is REALLY important, I think, on one of these!

Plus, its LeMans Blue!

Right. I am just worried about the coupe (I have a 4-door now) and that there's not AWD (living in Boston). I just would need to be careful and have some snow tires.

2010 135i Coupe  [2.63]
I went to school in rural New Hampshire and even there, there were only a few days (maybe 5?) when the roads were actually covered in snow. Back in CT, I put snows on the 1er and it performed extremely well so I would not let that deter you. Can't do anything about the doors...

Well when I bought it, I did a good amount of searching and had a hard time finding better deals. It seems when you're looking CPO convertible 1 series, they're few and far between, so there's quite a premium.

Before this 135, I tried to buy another one with 70k for $24000, 2009 non CPO, don't think it had nav, and the cosmetic condition about eqivalent.

That didn't work out. the "dealer's wife" wanted the car.

Then I tried to buy a 2009 red 135, non CPO, no nav. Guy wanted 29k, offered him 27.5, but it sold to someone else.

Then I found this one, made an offer for what I felt was a "fair" price after being fed up with car shopping, and got it for 29k instead of 32k. From looking on BMW's CPO website, it seems like it was a fair deal to me, but it's possible I paid on the high side, not sure. Also, I kind of ignored the cosmetic defects and carfax, since most of the scratches polished out and the CPO warranty makes me not worry about the accident.

Also, with 28k residual, the dealer CPO selling price could be mid 30s I'd guess?
