WTB - Higher Mileage 1M

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None

Item Interest
Hi Everyone,

I just thought Iíd throw this out there, even though itís a bit of a long shot. Iím currently in the market for a higher mileage 1M (read: in my price range!). I guess ďhigherĒ is kind of arbitrary, but judging from Iíve seen the past couple of years, it would probably have to be 60,000 miles and up.

Again, I know itís a long shot. But, this is such a great community, I figured there was no harm in putting this out there.

Thanks!

Realistically, I think the only 1M I could afford would be an example with 100K miles or more. There was an example on Bring A Trailer last year that had around 114K miles that went for about 25K. Granted, it was a Canadian car, so add a few more thousand on if it was brought over to the US.

So, my range would be 25-30K. Believe me, I KNOW this is a long shot here! But I figured there was no harm in asking!

Thanks All!

i think it's a GREAT idea to buy a higher mileage 1M. Often the driven cars are better taken care of where it counts, meaning maintenance and active use. Cars that sit.....break.

sending you a PM with some inside info about a car i know of....

I've been trying to contact oz oz on FB since December when he announced he might be selling. No response so far. And I can't join the 1m group without being an owner. Any other way to contact him?

There's one on in FL (check cargurus) that was crashed and repaired at a BMW dealership; sounds pretty decent. $40k. Been FS a while, I'm sure theres some wiggle room.

No affiliation, no idea of legitimacy, Quebec cars are notorious for rust and no idea of the import process to the US (if it's even possible), BUT.... its about $1.49 US....

Nacho, if you're referencing me, that's not mine, that one's got navigation.

As far as "rust" from a Quebec car, mine has extremely minor surface rust on some of the undercarriage bolt on parts, the OG owner took fantastic care.

To any potential buyers of northern cars, be sure you get an inspection or at the very least excellent photos all around.

The importing process is VERY simple (except for the being that the borders are now closed).

Good luck

Yes, the pictures of the front look the same so threw me off. Yes, my car was driven in summers and very little corrosion also.

Thank you.

Sounds like someone might be trying to sell my old 1M from the sounds of the FB post.

10" knows all about mine, so if that's really my old one, trust what information 10" passes along.

Good luck in the search!

Ah! Thanks for reaching out, everyone! Unfortunately, with the times being as they are, I need to sit tight and shelve the search for now. Love seeing all the driven 1Ms, though!

Stay healthy and safe, everyone.
