    Hi all BMW experts
    I have a chance to buy a 07 325i SE Couple with Leather, Navigation and a few other extras, 20k miles. Does £16k sound about right, or should I be put off a) by the price or b) as it is the 2.5 engine not the 3.0?
    All advice greatfully received

    Hey Marshian70

    I've just looked quickly on pistonheads and autotrader to gauge the price and that seems in the ball park for the car, as always if you're willing to have higher miles then the price drops.

    I owned a 55 325 salon and loved it. The 2.5 engine was powerful enough IMO and I was very happy with it - that said my heart did flicker when I saw a 330, but if you bought the 330 you'd feel the same when you see an M3! - and so it goes on.

    I would advise taking both on a test drive and see what's good for you.

    Hope that helps.

    bmw price will be good but many car supermarkets are around 13k, my mate just picked up a 07 320i m sport coupe black red leather 37k hpi clear on ebay from a trader selling ex lloyds tsb lease cars with full service £11260 !!!! they are out there you just got to look harder
    there was one at cooper bmw same age and spec same miles £18500 now thats a big difference.
    if i had spare cash i would start buying and sell them to the bmw dealerships but they only want trade in's thats how they get there mark up !!!
