WTB: 1M - Located in Toronto, Canada

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to buy a 1 Series M. Show me what you've got and maybe we can do some business.

Options should include (greater than or equal to): Convenience pkg., Premium pkg. and preferably apps pkg.

I currently reside in Toronto, ON, Canada.

If it is of any consolation, the car must be stock. Nothing modified!

Thanks.

Mine also, however it was sold to me on ebay by a 2nd hand dealer in Quebec. It was owned until approximately February of 2015 by a gentleman in Toronto and was sold and serviced by Ajax BMW (although, with European delivery).

Might be a good motivator to say what you are willing to pay? Curious if you find something, nothing comes up when I look.

I don't think this means what you think it does

If you don't mind me asking, how long ago did you pick yours up?

I will keep an eye out as Budd's BMW gets one every once in a while but is usually sold quickly.

Saw a black one there about 2 months ago.

There were several 1Ms for sale in Canada last year that found US buyers due largely to the exchange rate. My sense is that this was motivated in part by warranty expiration. Now that the original warranties on these cars are all expired, it's unlikely that there will be a surge of 1M sales again other than if people suddenly become impressed with the M2 and decide to trade their 1Ms in for this vehicle.

Well said! Yes all of a sudden some Canadian owners started to post in US dollars for prices that were basically close to US prices. In order for it to be worthwhile the savings have to significant and there are some complexities that only make sense if there is a savings to begin with. I feel a little bad now that you're looking for one and I poached one from your country! Sorry mate! I don't plan to sell it but if I ever did I would first offer it back to the Canadian gentleman that sold it to me. He was most gracious in helping me and my family make this difficult transaction happen and I owe that to him first. I have a new fondness for Canada after buying this car and I have a little bit of Canada in my garage.

Good luck.

I checked autotrader and kijiji recently. There was only 1 for sale in all of Canada, found on kijiji. So you better be prepared to buy whatever is out there.

Fun M fact! Canadians buy more M cars per capita than any country in the world.

Edit: This is the one. Asking $56k. Located in Calgary.

Don't know what the rules are for Canadians importing cars from the USA, but that is another option as there are more here for sale at any given time than are for sale in Canada.

And with the Canadian $$ right now, would probably be near $90k landed here.
