Very very rare? Really? Search for comparible cars....as to price, it is worth whatever someone wants to pay. A dealer will want 150% more than it is worth.

I once knew a Marine named Paul Shodean who lived out that way - nice guy.

Not really in the 135 market but if the right deal came along...

Would it be reasonable to offer $30K?

Yes, and to be fair, 1ers in general (much less a 135 AND a ragtop) are rare out here. I've seen 2 other 1 series since I got mine in February and I have put 13K on it since then.

A pristine (which i'd hope it would be after 6k) CPO/extended E88 135 is probably worth something in the low 30s, if you could walk away with keys in hand for 30 on the nose i'd call that a good deal, likewise I don't think it would be at all unreasonable for the dealership to ask 32-34 for it. It depends on market too, in my general area you're not stepping in a car like that for a penny under 34 (sadly). Sounds like a nice car, I know you're not looking for a 135...but hopefully this nudges you in that direction

I'll have to stop over tomorrow and take it for a drive - driven a 335 dogsled with no paddles ( loaner) but I suspect the 135 is a different beast altogether.

Bought mine a couple of weeks ago. Here's the details for reference.

2008 135i Convertible

6 Speed
M package
Navigation
Heated seats and lots of adjustability (premium package?)
Comfort Access
Monaco Blue/Coral Red
Certified Pre-owned

$29200 + taxes & fees; asking price was 32000

From my research, I'm satisfied with the price. I got a fair deal.

With that low mileage on a 2010, CPO and maintenance, I'd expect you to pay closer to 40 than 30. I did a good amount of research by looking at cars.com, autotrader, and BMW.com's inventory.

When you drive it, pay special attention to the steering. It says "active steering", which ruined the 335i that I had. I went to the 135i withOUT active steering and am MUCH happier.

I actually searched for a 1er with active steering. I found the standard steering very heavy...to the point of feeling like it had no power steering. The active steer gives you a power assist in parking lots, but tightens up a lot with a heavy feel when driving. I absolutely love the feature. Try it out...you may like it.

Looks like asking price is $39,995 (Apple BMW of York, PA right?)

I was going to say high 36-37 before I realized you said it's a convertible.

I assume it's this one:

Yep, that's the one. No idea if it has paddles or what-not (I'd get one with paddles or a manual but never just the 'automatic';...

I'm fine with the steering in my 128 so active steering = more crap to fail.

if it helps i just picked what i feel was a great deal. 2 days ago i got a 135i 2011 with 18k miles for 32K after taxes out the door (30,800 before taxes).

Soo that said with that low miles youll prob expect to pay about what i did, maybe more unless you find a really sweet deal. did anyone say carmax?? hehe

I doubt they would come down 10k from the asking price, this isnt a ford mustang

but, with all those options and convertible, i would say 33k is about fair + taxes

33 sounds quite reasonable, my e88 cpo with about 26k on it cost 33ish after taxes, and this example is very low mileage. Anything under 35 would be good value imo.

Dealer told me they are probably going to sell my car for mid-30s. It's a 2010 135i 6MT with iDrive, premium, HK, heated seats, etc with 32k miles. $46,600 new. Just a reference point...
