I am looking at a 2008 M5 at a dealership locally. The car is gray, SMG, 32xxx miles. CPO and Maintenance Package until 100k miles. Car has most options (ventilated seats, HUD, multi-function seats, etc.). What would be a reasonable price to offer the dealership? I think they want around $55k.

I bought my 2007 with similar mileage two weeks shy of a year ago for 48K (BMW made the first 2 payments) with CPO and Maintenance with the same mileage. I would say anything under 50K would be good if you can get it. If not, do what you have to do.

Make sure you review the service history and get the car inspected by an independant third party. CPO does not mean no accidents or paintwork. This is the better question to ask IMO as the history will determine what the car is worth. Carfax and Autocheck and CPO does not eliminate the need for a through inspection.

Thanks Michael. I appreciate the info. I will definitely have that done. Here is the service history as provided by the dealership.

Service history looks ok. What's the deal with the Navigation error? Was the CCC (computer brain) replaced? Electronics such as this are NOT covered under CPO and are a
common issue with these cars.

I have an email into them about that. I have heard that is an issue. Hopefully it was replaced. I believe it IS covered under the main warranty?

Offer them 48K. They can make 1K on it and move it. If they do not then I know of a 2008 Sapphire Black/CPO 99K MSRP. Brown Interior - Brand new Michelins, 39K car in the 48K price range. It is mint.
A very nice combo Black/Brown interior. Doctor owned previously and went back to the same dealership. It is located in FL. There are many out there now in the 50K range. I would not give them 55K even with CPO. I would buy a low mileage non CPO and get your own warranty that is better than theirs.

There are many to be had right now. Take your time.
Just an idea :)

Hi, I purchased a 2008 m5 with 15100 miles alphine white with full merino leather most things except for HUD, ventilated seats, yes CPO for $54k just last month in CA where used cars are typically higher. The car was mint except for surface scratch on passenger door handle

Ok that is a great data point. What were they asking? Did you haggle a bunch? Were they flexible?

Right now the dealership is at $53,850 and are unwilling to come down on the price. We basically have reached an impass as I am not willing to come up that much unless you guys think I am crazy but I don't think so. I just don't NEED the car today so I am willing to wait and come back when we have a few days left before the New Year...

$53,000 for a low mileage 08 is about right. A fair price for both parties.
