    I bought my first 335i for $3900 in 2015 with a broken camshaft. Had that one up and running for under $500 and flipped it.
    I just bought a manual 135i for $3650 yesterday, I'll figure out what's wrong with it in a couple days when it gets delivered.

    $3650 for an entire car... Wow. I mean I can't even find rims I like for that money.

    I picked up my 09 E90 N54 at a little dealership in Phoenix with 46k on it for $14,000. The car looks almost brand new inside and out, super lucky to find it at that mileage and condition for that money.

    Because why not? Lol. One racecar, one daily, and now this project. Which I seem to have already fixed, and will probably now sell.

    Nice! I'd love more information on the 135i when you figure out more.

    The best n54 deal I found was an '07 coupe with 38k miles on it bought in 2011 for $25k.....price was a little high at the time maybe but I have no regrets....car still runs and looks as new.....it literally looks like a 2018 model and will still smoke 90% of the cars out there on the road at any given time....what's not to like?

    It's a pretty good price for a 38k mile bmw 4 years old at that time.

    2009 535i
    Sport Pkg, Comfort Access, Cold Weather, SAT auto trans (sport button), Logic 7, Navigation, etc.
    Certified Pre-Owned/extended warranty
    56K mi
    Price in 2012: $30,000

    Still feel good about that deal. Car had zero issues. Dealer had gotten 3 nearly identical black/tan 535i's off lease at the same time - the other two had sold already, and this happened to be the last one of the trio left. Dealer wanted it gone. It's not the cheapest price ever for an N54 of course, but that was cheaper than 335i sedans were going for at the time, and might have been the lowest price for a 3-yr-old 535i in the nation at the time (all others I found were in the $35-45K range).
