-Black on Black
-Bumper to Bumper Warranty is good until 13 September, 2012 or 80,000 km. Extended Warranty is also available. (which mean expires in 5k km)

That's a good price for Canada. Cars are more expensive here than in the US.

Yes, maybe a little. The base price for a new base 128i coupe is $36,000 in CA whereas the USA version is $33,375.
This still does not make it a good deal. Especially as it is almost out of warranty...

i bought my 128i for $22k with 35k miles on it and I thought I got it for cheap. You will honestly probably not find a 128i for cheaper than what you posted. I don't know why they are listed well above KBB value...

On the other hand I got a 2011 128i with 6,000 miles for 29,750. Automatic, space gray metallic with premium package and alarm. I bought the car from a BMW dealer.

I think the local market has a lot to do with it also. In NJ/NY the cars were going for a lot more, so I went to PA and got a 2009 128i convertible with 6,000 mi, cold weather package, upgraded sound package for $26,000. Its immaculate.

I also searched and looked what was around for about 6 months.

That's a good deal, but I didn't want to spend above $24k

Milage is a bit high for that price IMO. I'd get them to either cpo it or drop the price by 2k.

Any CPO? I'll believe this when I see it.

BTW: Search Results

We found 0 listings within 50 miles of Hialeah, FL .
