i was offered by a dealer in toronto a brand new bmw 335i xdrive sedan. it's a 2009 and it's fully loaded plus the m package. It's alpine white with dakota black leather interior.

Here is the price tag: 61,000 Canadian Dollars everything included (tax, pdi, delivery)

What do you guys think? good price?

I see.. if thats the case you have no choice, most dealers will be similar, where is this Budds? For $61k it all depends what you want out of the car, if a quick but smaller/mid sized 4 door is it, you got it. Id personally start looking at a 5 though. Had 2 3's now and back seat was issue both times, E36 and E46.

Curious though, if winter performance isnt important ( you have the accord ) why Xdrive?

Its a bit of a head scratcher, why care about performance ( M package ) yet weigh it down with xDrive? See what I mean?

you are quite correct about that one. is there a big difference in the feeling and performance between a 335i and a 335i xdrive?

Speaking directly to xdrive vs no xdrive, honestly never driven the new 335i with xdrive so I can only go off of the fact the xdrive adds weight, does nothing for dry performance, slows you down and not any better in ride, cornering etc so...

Obviously xdrive is superior in winter but again, not what you want if the accord is the beater.

xdrive also doesn't allow for sports suspension...i gotta agree with blackedout. with winter beater get the pure sports car....delete the xdrive. will help lower the cost too...for something u'll never use.

with the M package and fully loaded I would say thats a good price. If your driving this just in the summer you can cut the cost and get the same without x-drive, thats if they have one in stock. The 335i is an amazing car especially the new ones, drove a 2010 with the m package 6 speed alpine white today and everyone was drooling over it.

it's an inventory clear out that's why it has a good price. it's complete with everything

Suggestion, do a little bit more research before jumping into a $61,000 ordeal. Personally I would screw the X, and buy the I. Its a bit quicker, lower to the ground and cheaper. Plus I see no issues about driving it around in the winter time if it came down to it. Just remember, you are going form a Honda to a BMW, a BMW performs exceptionally well in the winter time even if its only a RWD. At least that how I felt when I sold my Prelude.

+1 ^^

Agree strongly with moscow pete - do not personally think you need the X Drive - especially if you plan on keeping your Honda as a winter beater, and the bimmer as the fun summer car.

Even if you do drive the 335i in the winter, you should be fine, driven my 325i thru 2 winters without any issues. With DSC and good set of winters you will be good to go,

Anyway best of luck with your decision - whatever happens you are not going wrong with buying the bimmer,

Cheers!

61K taxes in?! Are you serious.... You would faint when you see what we're buying 2009 335xi sedans with 500 miles or less from the Auctions.

Seriously though, if you're willing to take the huge hit with buying NEW, then go for it. Otherwise, you have better options, you just don't know about yet.

i don't have any hook ups with the auctions though. Is there any way you can hook me up?

THanks!

I may, PM me with some more details.

Yes, There's plenty of 2010 cars with 10 miles at the auction (Manheim, Adesa). Some dealers like to cut down on 'overstock' this way... Or offer rare vehicles people would die to get their hands on. Like 2010 R8 V10's, and Aston Martin DBS's, etc.

I occasionally find the 2010 Bmw model with delivery mileage (328i, 335i, 5 series) nicely equiped with great savings but lately not so much. When I do find these deals I'll pick them up for myself, like the 2009 328xi i purchased in the summer from Manheim Pennsylvania with 400 Miles on it. Other than looking at the ODO, you couldn't tell the car was used at all since delivery.

Thank you Mark.
I am just speculating once you bring it over, there is no more factory warranty from BMW?

No worries Ivan, there is full factory warranty with any Bmw I bring over as long as it's within the 4 year 80,000km/50,000 mile range.

I honestly don't understand how you're comparing buying a new car from a dealership to buying one from an auction. There's many pros and cons to both, but if money is no issue, then buying new clearly outweighs the pros. I've bought TONS of bmw's from auctions when i used to part out, but buying a car for yourself is either a hit or miss. No clear guarantee at what you're going to get.

My advice is do plenty of research on prices(used/demo or new) and some mentioned great advice already in terms of really needing the all wheel drive. Good luck, and take your time.

I'm confused by posts that the 335i is faster than tha 335xi. Are you comparing track time or 0-100 time? If I'm comparing just 0-100 time, the 335xi is faster than the 335i, but the 328i is faster than the 328xi. I don't get why one the 335xi is faster than the 335i but the 328xi is slower than the 328i. Based on technical specifications per BMW.ca.

^^if that's the case its likely because the XI has shorter gearing. It probably has a lower top speed too.

you're right Bruce, a used car from the auction always needs something.... Whether it's minor or major maintainence...

For certain cars I buy brand new excess stock with 5-10km on the ODO right from the manufacter Bmw NA/Canada at thousands less than brand new dealer invoice prices... In that sense, I'm buying the same stock your dealer is getting before the new cars goto their dealers. Then there is no difference from the new cars John Smith buys from his local dealer and the new cars I purchase myself through Manheim.

I was just saying the real savings are with the new cars that have 500-1000 miles on them, exectutive demo's and showroom display models, etc.
