Drove a M235i 6MT this weekend

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finally found a 6MT car to drive in the SEA WA area.

This was a trade in 2015 car with most of the M performance goodies on it (exhaust, defuser, shifter, carbon interior, etc).

Premium pkg, everything but nav.

10K miles

CPO Elite to 75K miles.

Esotrial blue, black int.

Very impressed with the car. I could see this being a nice update to my E46 M3.

Downside is the asking price is quite high ($49K). At this point they are only willing to come down to $47K. MSRP was $54K.

At any rate I could see pulling the trigger if the right optioned car became available at the right price---for me.

Most people are able to negotiate close to 7% off the MSRP when new. Not sure what "everything" but nav includes. I would much rather have the Tech package + extended cluster and bigger display over the extra safety packages.

If you have $47k to spend and are planning to buy, I would just get the car new in the exact color combo you want, packages you want, and know it was broken in properly and didn't have any issues that required it to be returned so early. I am always weary of dealer cars with low mileage...maybe the guy turned it in on an M3. Or maybe it was in the shop for 3 months and they traded it in on a different car to keep the owner happy.

The story is he really wanted the M4 and pulled the trigger on a trade. I took that at face value. I'll take a look at the build sheet again as I might have overstated "loaded" since it doesn't have the Tech Pkg. It does have the Winter Pkg however.

On pricing that is the stickler so to speak. I don't have the $47K regardless so a 2014 is more realistic.
