I'd estimate around $15-17k in a private sale. That's a very nice spec, great find!

I appreciate the response, thanks. I have been trying to look for similar cars to compare against, and havenít seen anything close at 15k on Autotrader, etc. I would say, based on what I have seen, 17-19k seems to be accurate. Iím still poking around for more info so please keep the comments coming. Going to see the car in person next week.

15k - 17k sounds pretty good, maybe low if you really want it. Alpine White and 6sd are highly desired options. If you love the car no one's gonna say 19k for what appears to be an excellent spec/condition is a bad deal. Tires are gonna cost you a grand.

The only caveat is if any 2 series manual will satisfy you all the same, $20k+ is getting into m235i territory. Here on 1addicts most of us would pay the same or more for a 135 over a 235 but that's not everyone

I would agree with Chris, right around 16-17k. I feel like the White on black with 6spd is hard to come by as well. Especially with the Mpack.

I'd say $17k is a fair price for both sides

Likely 19 if it were here in Seattle area and was what you were looking for specifically. Those don't come up here so much. Closest to here is Portland OR at a dealer for 18K. Agree with swunder if you love the car that's easily worth an extra couple grand. Never discount how YOU actually feel driving the car, especially when it's a "driving machine" you are after

I have been looking through Autotrader, Cars.com, Craigslist, etc - and I think with the mileage and a 6-speed, in stock condition, they are listing higher than most people here are saying.

The closest I could find was a car with basically identical mileage and options, except grey in color, and it was listed at a dealer for $23k. I found a 2011 with 65k on it, white, listed by a dealer at $22k.

The only lower mileage manual cars I could find were a 2009 with 33k miles, listed by a private seller at $22k, and a 2009 with 47k miles, listed by a dealer at $19k.

I have been saving the ads for comparison purposes, and will keep looking around. Definitely appreciate the comments from all of you!

15k is a pipe dream for that car. I got my 2011 dct 135i about 16 months ago for 18k with 49k miles. It was the cheapest in the country that was in very good condition, had it shipped from a BMW dealer in Atlanta to my house.

FWIW, I paid $19,999 (plus $400 to transfer in) for my 2012 135i from CarMax with 38K miles about a year ago. It is an M-Sport, 6-speed in Cashmere Silver over black leather. It doesn't have iDrive, which I prefer.

I'd think that $16k-$19k would be about right for your example.

Maybe prices are going up? Last year when I was looking I feel like there were a lot more 135's for sale, especially on the forums here for under 15k.

N54's, possibly. Have you seen what people are asking for here for 128's, lol? It's hilarious when people say a low mileage great condition 135i is worth 15k. Prices have been very consistent. When I purchased mine, the closest priced car with similar specs/condition/mileage was 21k.

I'd be shocked if low mileage 135i's with n55's drop much lower than 18k in the next couple of years. The secret is and has been out about these cars.

Good to hear. I bought mine back in Dec. of 2015 for $22k. Back then it had 38,000 miles. I'm at 65,000 now. Based on the prices your quoting it doesn't sound like it's dropped much in price in 3+ years.
