Just purchased 540 Howdy...just a friendly FYI...most of the posts are right on...there are too many good deals out there..really a buyer's market. I just bought my first BMW on Christmas Eve 2008. Paid $13k in Dallas. Original owner 2002 with 50,040 miles. Perfect CarFax, flawless paint & interior, M Sport package, Premium sound system, etc... I paid too much, 'cause the owner jumped on my first offer of 13..no haggling at all.... Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com) says mine is $17,300 Private Party and $20,005 retail, so I paid way under. Just how today's market is... You might be able to sell yours at your current asking price, just need to find the right buyer Good luck!
