"$18,900, 80,000 roughly dark silver sedan. Nothing compares"

You should at least look at a CPO vehicle. For a '07 CPO'd 323i you may be able to get around 23-24K...especially since it's now 2011. I know we are talking about an extra few thousand bucks, but you will have warrenty until 160,000kms. I'd assume warrenty on what you are buying is done (80,000km). Also you should get 1.9% financing (60mths). I'd assume the car you are looking at is at regular bank finance rates.

Sit down with a CPO rep and see what your monthlies will be for CPO vehicle. I have never regretted my decision to go CPO. My friends and family are all "wow a BMW, must be nice..." I'm paying less for my CPO bimmer then they are for their Ford Escapes and Dodge Caravans...

At $18000 plus listing price is about right considering the preparation and getting the car in show room condition... from BMW dealership, the mark up would be more....bearing in mind, retail buyer cannot buy from BMW financial.. unless one use a broker...

Cost of the car from an auction from us is: price of the car + $600 dealer fee + $500-750 auction fees + HST

There is atlest 20-30 323i everyweek.

Zack, I don't think you've ever driven a 323 or I don't think you'd be buying it. It is a gutless wonder. You're better off with a 2006 330 which are swapping hands around $15ish for clean low mileage examples. You're also saving vs. those 323's. The only reason they're cheap is because BMW flooded the mkt with them by offering really cheap lease rates to get people that may have otherwise shopped elsewhere. I've been in several 323's auto and stick, and Ugh is all I have to say. A great chassis waiting for a more powerful engine IE 328, 330, 335 etc.....

I have an 07'323i it's a great car after some mods and suspension upgrade. The power is enough to get around. You won't be disappointed.

Make sure you get the 2007 323i NOT the 2006 323i.

The 2007 323i has a third stage intake manifold which is not found in the 2006 model (hence the 200hp in the 2007 models), and the transmission in the 07 is a ZF.

After some small ecu tuning, the car is on par with the 328i performance.
