M535i Price Information

Pricing for USA

Excellent: $8,000-$11,000
Car has few original miles, under 75k. Absolute PERFECT condition. Recent Maintenance done. Modifications are acceptable if done well, correctly, and are not permanent. and add value accordingly.

Very Good: $6,000-$8,000
Car has less than 100k miles, usually. Paint in excellent shape. Interior very good (no warped/cracked plastic, leather/cloth in good condition). Suspension tight (no wandering, shimmy), brakes excellent (pads good, rotors good). Maintenance recently done. Bumpers/m-tech kit in good condition (especially front spoiler). No drivetrain noises/vibrations. Strong compression in engine. Hoses and other underhood rubber in good condition, tires good. No mechanical worries, but may have a dent or two and scratches. These cars would generally be BMW CCA owned, maintained examples worth their money.

Good: $4,000-$6,000
Mechanicals need to be in good shape. Top end of engine must be in good-excellent condition. Maybe need some maintenance soon. Mileage usually under 150k. Interior good. Main issue is coming up maintenance items or DIY or easily repairable items.

Fair: $2,000-$4,000
These would be tattered examples in need of TLC. Need new rubber, brakes, major engine maintenance, drivetrain work (even new driveshaft), front end work. Nothing an experienced Do It Yourselfer can't fix over the winter months. However, MUST HAVE NO RUST or structural damage.

Poor: $500-$2,000
These are really bad, tattered examples in need of major work. Bumpers are HARD to find, and other parts that are expensive, may be needed on these. Would need a LOT of time, effort, and money to turn these around.

I left a lot of room to move around in these criteria because you never know what type of car you may find. Most daily drivers are in the Good to Very Good condition. Certain parts for these cars are $$expensive$$ so budget any repairs. And, of course, what you're ACTUALLY going to pay will depend on where and from whom you get the car of course.
