2001 330i in Tacoma/Seattle. Either I sell or I trade in!

Like the title says, we am either going to sell this car privately or its going to be traded in.

My family no longer needs this car. Sometime soon I am going to be buying a motorcycle, and my mom is going to buy a small, cheap, good-on-gas car for herself, leaving us with an extra car which we want to sell, or else it gets traded towards the new car.

So if somebody wants to check out the car, please let me know. I figure that it wouldn't hurt to post it here one more time.

Here are a few details:

2001 330i
60,400 miles
Titanium Silver exterior, black leather interior
Sports and Premium packages, no cold weather package
Tires have lots of tread left (only about 15-20k miles on them)

Bonuses:
Swaybars, front and rear (still have originals)
Clear turn signals (still have originals)
Just had the 60k service performed (Inspection II)

As far as condition, there are two TINY dings in the front bumper which measure an inch or less. If you look in the pictures you may not even be able to see them because they are so small. The rest of the car is absolutely beautiful.

About 6-8 months ago, I traded my aftermarket wheels/tires for a brand NEW set of stock M68 wheels/tires which came off a new 2003 330i. So in essence, the tires and rims are less than a year old .

My asking price is $25,000, which is the private party value given by Edmunds.com. However, because I know I'm going to get raped by trading in, I'm willing to negotiate on the price and consider whatever you are willing to offer. (I really don't have a choice...I lose money either way and even more if I trade in. )

For pictures of the car, please visit www.freewebs.com/funkeycold

Please PM me or contact me at funkeycold@hotmail.com for more information.

I don't mind, but I can't give you a solid figure.

As you probably know, each individual dealer will end up giving you a different price and who knows what it could be. Sometimes dealers will inflate your trade in, but then tack on more to the other car's price.

If I had to guess, I would expect about $22k-23k. If the dealer REALLY wants the car, they might give a little more. If they don't really want it, they will probably value it less. The problem around here is that the local BMW dealer has about 15 3-series' in its used car lot and they don't really want another one. Most non-BMW dealers will simply take the car to BMW and ask them to take the car. Some dealers will put out bids to get a better trade-in price, but its hard to say what they will offer.

Suffice to say, trading in will always be a few thousand less than selling private party.

Hope that helps!

Here is the Edmunds.com report. Looks like the value went up a little from the last time I checked.
