Please help me price a pristine xiT

Hello All,
Noob alert here. I am new to the forum not new to bimmers and beemers. I have a friend selling his 2005 gray over black xiT and I don't know what it's worth. Here are the details: 2005 xiT, 5 spd, 57k miles, 1 owner, garaged, no winters. Everything is original including suspension, cooling system, serp belt, etc.

I guess the price is whatever anyone wants to pay. I would prefer a RWD but can't pass this pristine low mile AWD example up. I don't want to pay over $8k and would do so if the full Inspection II is completed.

What's a fair price?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
A. W.

the AWD might be good for Montana... it depends on condition and maintenance records, but with the 5 speed and low miles (and assuming very good condition), seems $8K is a low price. if it is truly all original, expect about $3000 in preventative maintenance, maybe more due to the AWD. Too bad it is AWD, sounds like a car i would want to buy...

Thanks for the reply challenger! I agree AWD and a little extra clearance will be useful in MT. Unfortunately it appears suspension upgrades to the x don't have a great cost/benefit ratio, certainly compared to RWD. I appreciate the info!

He low miles he'll p the price, to me AWD and being in a snowy area would tend to indicate this was a winter car. And that doesn't.

6k will buy a nice touring all day, 8k will buy a really nice manual 2wd.
If I were to give my Touring Build a first name, I'd probably name it "Alan".
Mostly because I like puns.
