Potential local find

I'd appreciate the more experienced folks here advice.

Does this seem about right for price / mileage?

Looks awfully nice.

It's late. I'll check back tomorrow.

Thanks!

IMO The prices can vary depending on the province, check the price agaist others in the BC Autotrader. The car looks pretty clean, if its the original owner he should have all the records, if he stuck by the dealer maintence schedule this could be a great find in my book. Keep in mind that a lot of things are going to be "comming due real soon" as far a maintenance is concerned. Get a reputable BMW shop to do a pre purchase inspection on any BMW before you buy it.

The price seems high but in BC the cars are in better condition. Something similar in Toronto would probably be around 7 to 13K.

Check some prices on autotrader here:

Yeah, i'd agree. Another (locally) sold for $14k, and it was imola red w/140k. ... think it was a 2002 as well.

Hrm.

From what i saw in that autotrader link, this one's price seems right in line?

I wont consider an automatic. IMHO, bmw's should be manual only ... just plain great to drive.
