Hi all, I am thinking about selling my car but am struggling to find a good comparator since there seems to be no 2007 wagon's out there right now. The is as follows:

- 64K KM's
- Monaco Blue
- 17" Radial wheels
- Premium package
- Blue Tooth (BMW Assist)
- USB Integration (ipod)
- Leatherette
- Panoramic Sun roof
- Ceramic tint
- Auto
- CPO (June 2013 expiry)
- Parking Distance Control

Car has no accidents, and excellent condition (RIMS have some curb rash and there are minor scratches from general use).

I can post a pic in the coming days but would like to know thoughts on how much to list this for.

Thanks in advance.

Too bad if it was manual it is exactly what I am looking for to replace my e46 touring. I know a dealer in Ottawa that may be a buyer

Dealers will pay wholesale. I'm sure the OP would rather sell it privately.

That goes without saying but this is a dealer that resells a lot of BMW's and wagons so at least he will get more then selling it to a dealer that will then wholesale it off to someone else.

On a wholesale value it's within 3-5 % of the sedan on the + side. Retail a little more so just find a bunch of equivalent sedans and add approx. 5%. This is just a guideline as more of the general public is looking for sedans than wagons. So it will take longer to sell in some cases. In my case I love wagons and prefer them, it's just so hard to find a manual one as I don't buy autos at all! usually the manual ones don't even get to be advertised before they sell.

With you on this, manual wagon is my ideal combo! I think for most people looking for BMWs - the wagons and the coupes end up having more long term value as well because they are more unique than the sedans.

Thanks for the input all...

Sedans seem to be ~$23K for the same mileage and options though these were not CPO. Given this it looks like $24K-25K is reasonable given CPO should have some additional value.

For a 2007 $24K - $25K seems reasonable,you can always list higher if you are in no hurry to sell, depends how many and bad are those scratches ....

There is a 2008 328xit with 67K listing at $24.999 reduced from $31K from a dealer (black in color and fully loaded)

That sounds about right....

If it has premium doesn't it have leather not Pleather?

Also In regards to the other wagon for sale I always worry when a BMW is listed "fully loaded". Options on our cars are endless.

To me Fully loaded is Sport, Premium, cold weather, Dakota leather, comfort access, Logic 7 audio and Nav.

Sunroof and premium to me is not "fully loaded"

When I bought my e46 touring it took me a long time to find one that was:

Manual
Sport
Premium
Harmon Kardon
Xenons
NOT xi, RWD

Took a while amd I had to fly to Atlanta to pick it up but it was worth it. Had it 5 yrs, ready to sell and buy an E92 similar options, will have to travel to find one and I don't mind

When you're ready to sell your touring, please contact me first.

I saw the black one, something seems wrong with the price...I could find another even close to that which leads me to believe something is fishy :)
