I'm looking to sell my 2002 325i (in So Cal). According to Kelly Blue Book
and AutoTrader, the value is roughly $20k to $23k in a private party sale.
Its a popular configuration: Titanium Silver, black leather, sports &
Now, I've never sold a car before, and my parents usually hold their cars
til they go below $10k. So we were wondering if there was any difference
between selling a $10k toyota/honda and a $20k BMW? Like in terms of how the
transaction goes? Or do people just show up with certified checks?
We were also wondering if there is anything like the buyer saying he wants
to get the car checked out by his mechanic or the BMW dealership? Obviously
he pays for that inspection if he wants one, but is this a common practice?
I'm not exactly going to let the guy drive off with my car.
I'd like to save the hassle by trading it in, but I would assume I'd loose
$4k which is definitely not worth it to me to save the hassle.
The car is fully serviced, but I never kept all the tons of paperwork
because its all saved at the dealership. Should I get a print out from the
dealer as proof?
Do you think this car will be easy or difficult to sell?
