15-20% Markup on the quoted base price? This would hopefully give you some buffer for downward negotiation too.

The same holds true for buying from a dealer...

2. If you can find a 330i Sport, nothing like it. Since the cars are mechanically similar. You can find itwasntme's review on his 330i Sport on the Initital Ownership Reviews. I find it more than enough for anyone's requirements. Quoting from his review:



3. BMW Certified, Team-BHP classifieds & actually all classified websites. If the car is real, verify all the details by getting a Pre-Purchase Inspection done by a BMW dealer themselves.

Could I ask the ballpark figure a 2019 320d registered in Kerala would go for? It's a G20 luxury line with 44k kms and a single owner, still in standard warranty. No existing service package. It doesn't have the adjustable thigh support on the seats and I am unsure if it has the automatic reversing package. It does have the fully digital speedo. I think the car is under BMW financial lease but is currently with a 3rd party dealer. I'm guessing they are trying to sell it off before the lease expires in a few months.

Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

Folks, I am looking at Sept 2020 registered (Aug 2019 Manufactured) Mercedes Benz C Class 220d Progressive (Blue) with 27000 KM on the ODO. At the time of purchase, the car was invoiced at 43.xx lakh INR. So what*seems a fair price?

The car has AMG front grilled installed and is the model with a digital instrument cluster and also has Edel Assurance till Dec 2024.

I was offered a similar car for 46L in kerala. Road tax is about 5l lower in Mumbai so it shouldn't be hard to get it for 39-40L. Considering that the supply of cars is more in Maharasthra, you could probably try to bargain for much lesser. Try offering 35L and see what they say.

The asking price is 35L, I have offered 30L.

It was of an individual; before I could close the deal, it got sold. I am sad.

Yeah that was going below market value so it was understandable. Don't worry, just gotta wait for some more interest rate hikes and this whole used car bubble should come crashing down.

So a 2018 C250D for quoted price of 29 lacs (yet to be negotiated) and done 58k seems ok?

Re: The "USED" Car Price Check Thread

A 2006-10 gen 2009 model Wagon R Vxi (1000 cc) with nearly 60k on the meter is available for purchase in Karnataka.

Although the car is in the same family from the date of purchase, due to the death of the original registered owner, it probably has had two owners on paper.

The clutch needs to be replaced soon. All else is well.

What could be a fair price, both for the seller and the buyer?

Thanks in advance.

Seems alright. I would rather spend a few lakhs extra and get the model that came with the wider touchscreen and updated UI instead of the outdated kommand interface on the c250d.

How do aftermarket touch screens work as an upgrade?
