Back again - 2nd 35is - paid a lot - BAH!

Post by matsmith749 » Sun Jan 15, 2023 2:57 pm

After having a 2010 35is back around 2013, I traded it in for a porsche 911 - turns out a mistake. Thought I would love the porsche, but maybe my budget was too low & I settled for a below average car. Soon sold.

After 10 years, looking back the BMW z4 was the car I missed the most.... so have just done the deal on another! Woohoo!

My list of wants was extensive, little newer, under 50k miles, must have heated seats & steering wheel, PDC, sat nav, folding mirrors, cruise, the made of chocolate 19" 326m wheels with non runflats - other options would be nice.

Checking out the auto trader for a couple of weeks, most were £20k ish for 2010 - 2011 cars, specs were below what I really wanted.

Then up popped a BMW Approved sale, including 12 months BMW warranty. Car is mint inside & out. 2016 35is, mineral white, red interior, all the options I wanted plus most of thes rest that are available - only exception being an upgraded speaker set (I can add that later). 33k miles.

So I bought it.

But £24k feels a lot.... hope to forget that price quickly & just enjoy the car!

I was cross shopping against a new z4 m40i - but at the spec I wanted it was looking like around £60k. As a cash buyer, £24k was a whole lot more acceptable & looking at other prestige small quickish cars, can't see much better for this price.

I think £24k from a main dealer seems about right?
Come springtime / summertime you will probably see that price holding.

Surprised a BMW dealer would sell a warranted car with non runflats.

Welcome back BTW, and yes I do think £24k is a lot for any E89 but I am a tight arse! :D
All good things come to those who wait. But I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

Welcome back, you obviously know all about the 35is with this being your second, so make sure you get out and drive it like it should be driven. :driving:
Looking forward to the photos when you pick it up

AT have three on at this time - if it’s a 35is you want with a decent low miles you’ll have to pay for it!

There are plenty 2.0l cars about but relatively few 35is

Welcome back, sounds nice.

I was actually expecting the price to be higher tbh. A 2016 loaded car with low miles. I think you’ve done ok at £24k :thumbsup:

Enjoy it and get out and drive it :driving:

    Welcome back to Z4 ownership. :thumbsup:

    £24K is quite a chunk of money, but a 2016 model is a late one and yours has a low mileage with the bonus of the AUC warranty.

    Enjoy the drive home on collection day, and don't forget the photos!

    The Warranty is quite important when spending a wedge of cash on a used car - my late 2016 car only has 16.5k but I bought the BMW insured warranty when the manufacturer warranty ended

    It’s been a complete waste of cash - but hindsight is a wonderful gift!

    24 35is FS Ron on AT…not sure prices are going to rise much this year…

    I don’t look at AT very often but 44 35i/ 35is are a lot AFAIK FS?

    To be fair I wouldn't expect to be having warranty issues after only 16.5K miles!

    I only looked at the 2016 cars available to buy.
    Didn’t want to muddy the water with older cars available
