How many miles did your new bmw have when picked up

I picked up my 02 330i with 15 miles on the odometer. I was suspicious that they made had left someone test drive it, which would not have made me very happy consider I had it on order for 2 months.

The sales manager told me it was because they had to have a tech "test drive" it to make sure everything was right. I don't know about that though because all the cars I bought have like 5 mile or less on them.

What was your mileage on your new bmw when picked up?

When my mom bought the 4.4 X5 it had 26 miles on it, but they drove it to a tinting place, so minus the 10 miles round trip for that it was about 15. I dont think you have anything to worry about, i cant imagine them letting a random person test driving a new car, did it have the plastic on it??

I had 14. Anything under 25 miles is normal. Don't get too worked over it.

3mi, and i bought the car off the lot too, i actually got very lucky, the car was ONE day off the boat, because the dude that ordered it backed out and it was the only car in the whole dealer that doesn't have a front plate drilled on. car wasn't even prepped yet. so drove it home the next day
