Default Pre-owned 320i / 325i - Mumbai

Hey guys , looking out for a car with the Budget of around 20L. Was looking at the Accord , but the heart is set with the Bimmer. Saw around on this forum that the 320i or the 325i pre-owned might just fit into my budget. Want to get one, but Navneet Motors (Mumbai) does not deal in pre-owned cars. Now i have no idea where to look for a good place to buy a car. Will the Bimmer come in the budget? And what would be a good place to look for it in mumbai? Please Help!

Why pre-owned? He can get a new one in his budget, with the new gen one around the corner there must be massive discounts on the current superb.

I test drove the new accord last week and did not find it exciting at all. Its good on the interiors,space,looks but thats about it. The Jetta is far more exciting to drive, heck even the Altis automatic felt more torquey than the Accord.

You should consider the Jetta DSG too will save you some cash and they have an excellent offer going on.

But certainly a well maintained 3 series at that price would be theee best option.

I want a 3 series. The questions is whether i will get one for around 20L. One year old 325i is quoted at around 27L by dealers

@Redeff
Check out carwale.com, they have a few 3 series for sale. One of the dealers is 'Wheelocity'. His name has been regular in the sale of high end cars on carwale. Don't know about his reputation? Can anyone vouch or give feedback for wheelocity?

I did check out that site. I called up wheelocity too. He is quoting around 26-29 L for a 3125i.

Buddy, it is but obvious for you to say that you didn't find the new Accord exciting since you own/owned a prev. gen. Accord V6!

hey Redeff, i saw a 325i about 3 months ago, black with beige interior, done about 10k 07 model. A friend of mine was interested in the car, but by the time he got his finances together the car was sold for about 19.7L.

If you look hard enough you might just get lucky, but i would wait till first qtr of next year to buy one. As soon as the facelifted model comes in you will deinately find cars for 19-21L.

Since you're after the petrols and not the diesels, it should not be too difficult to find a very attractively priced 320i or a bbig bargain on a 325i. The petrols don't hold their value much, and surprisingly there seem to be quite a handful of 3's changing hands within 12-15 months. I wonder why.

Where ever i inquire , all i seem to see are 325i, ( in petrol ) and those are a year old, at around 26. Not that 10L fall in price is low. But considering my budget constraints. Where did you see the 325i?
