Re: Buying a used BMW

I think the new one ( BMW 320d Corporate Edition) would cost around Rs:27Lacks On-road with PY registration and +3L for Chennai registration.

There is also an offer for this Model; 20K emi for 7yrs loan and every 12th Emi needs to be paid Rs:1Lakh
The downpayment was Rs:6 Lakhs for PY Registration

Re: Buying a used BMW

Hello Bigtrip, It is OK to buy a second hand BMW but definitely not the one which you are telling us about. The person is asking just too much for a heavily run model. Since you belong to Gurgaon, I assume that car must be owned by some businessman who would have used it on daily basis. If you are keen on getting this model, there's a fair scope for negotiating to atleast a couple of Lakhs. Otherwise, Just search around for more cars with low mileage (Upto 35k Kilomters for a recent model is alright), Delhi NCR is full of Pre-owned BMWs / Mercs on sale. Goodluck. :smile:

Yup 20Lakh is too much for a used 3-series considering it has clocked some KMS too! A new one(corporate edition) itself comes to around 30Lakhs OTR in Chennai.

A side suggestion which I would like to add is that if you are not very keen solely for a brand image of an entry level BMW / Mercedes, Hunt for a brand new full sized D-Segmenter like Accord, Passat, Superb and more. These cars are not only value for money but also offer sheer size, space, comfort, features than a 3 or C can offer. Only where they lack is brand image. (This would have been a deal fair enough if you were searching for actual full sized luxury, i.e. E-Class, 5-Series, A6) And after all, nothing else can offer better satisfaction than owning a new car, especially in a budget like yours. These are my couple of cents but practically do give a thought to it.
