Hello Everyone, im new to these forums
. Like many of you I have admired BMW's from afar for a LONG time. But now, as fate would have it, I have an opportunity to be able to afford an "Ultimate Driving Maching".
about 5-10mins from where I live, there is a 1997 BMW 540i, fully loaded for $14000, but the price is negotiable. Im thinking of offering between $12k or maybe $12,500 (im paying cash).
It's silver (I dont know what the proper BMW name is for the silver color, im a bit of a Bimmer Noob), has 96k miles on it, its missing the BMW emblems on 2 of the 4 factory std rims (are these easy to replace), interior is very tidy, has some slight scratches on the exterior paint (2-3).
I'm going to take it for a test drive tomorrow morning to see how it drives, its an auto trannie, im really looking forward to taking it for a spin, it will only be the 2nd Bimmer that ive ever driven, I drove a friends '05 330ci earlier this year (very nice coupe) btw.
anywho, is the asking price of $14k overpriced for what the seller is asking for?
and am I being reasonable if I offer $12k or $12,500?
well, I love the forums so far, glad to be apart of this BMW community
