Got a detailed check up and tech report from BMW service centre. The vehicle is in good condition, all electrical and mechanicals are tested OK. Minor niggles and issues pointed out though i will discount it considering these tech reports are always conservative.

Will be picking it up in the next couple of days.

Looks like the guy was driving around a lot . But, condition of the car looks fair.

And, yes, I am specifically looking for an AT. A new A-star is no longer available, as it has been discontinued. They have cleared out all the stocks in the 6-7 dealerships I inquired with. AT variants of i10, i20, brio, polo tsi, and celerio are all of the equation, either due to budget, limited dealerships or waiting period issues.

Hence looking for astar AT in the used market.

To me the price looks good. Do check the car for abuse though.

I don't really know how much this would go for, but would love to know.
You should try carwale, and use their "fair" condition value.

Well, its difficult to find good examples of A-Star AT in the used car market. Its just one year old, has ABS as well. An ideal price should be around 3.25 IMO considering the A-Star is now discontinued. Do update us if you close the deal.

Hi All, sold my coimbatore registered 2010 i10 1.2magna (odo26k) for 3.05lakhs. I was getting quotes from 2.8lakh onwards but surprisingly a dealer itself took the car for the above price. But after getting the advance; same day evening a direct buyer came n he was ready for 3.15lakhs😁

What is a good price to pay for 2011 i10 Sportz Automatic in Bangalore? The car has ODO reading of 25k and is in quite good condition. No extras except rear parking sensors.

Decided to walk away from that deal, as the seller was not willing to budge any further.

Its hard for me to find 2012/2013 A-star ATs for less than 3.8 lacs in Bangalore. I am not sure if my negotiation skills suck or if automatics demand a good resale value here.

Btw, got another Astar AT offer: 2013, 1800kms, Bangalore, looks brand new with reverse camera. After a lot of talking, seller came down to 4.5 lacs. His logic was he paid close to 6 lacs including accessories for the car. I enquired with Maruti True Value for the same car and they estimated the value of the car to 3.3 lacs.

I am not sure how to go about these deals, as the market value and seller expectations are way off.

Every time people increase the selling price on the context of accessories I just tell them to remove those and then sell me the car as the manufacturer sold it to them. Accesories are for ones convenience, they in no way should be affecting the car's resale value. This is just a stupid reason to Increase the asking price. If true value offers 3.3 lakhs then please do not quote more than 3.65lakhs.
And no petrol automatics demand a high resale value in India. It is just that the owners of these cars think they have something unique as we still have a smaller share of the market using automatics, so their asking price is rubbish.
Sorry if my words have offended anyone but this is the same problem I had faced when we were searching for a small auto car for my friend.

Exactly, you are may be showing too much eagerness to the buyer. IMO you should look at i 10 automatics rather, there are more of these and less cynical sellers.

I am trying to get away from Hyundai for a while, especially since the service center in my town is lousy.
