Presume it's an auto and not in salesman's bog standard white, I'd guess around ~£21k

Do you mean M Performance exhaust?
Is it the auto or manual?

It sounds like it has the most desirable options (pro nav and HK), but auto wipers, rear sensors, is all standard kit AFAIK.

FYI, when I traded in my 3 year-old M135i (facelift), albeit with 70k miles on but more options than the above car I got £12.5k for it. I guess private sale I might have got £14k.

I'd suggest the above car around £18-20k would be a fair price. They're not exactly rare, and discounts when brand new were massive.

I'd put into WBAC and then pretty much ignore what they say :D

Have you looked at AutoTrader and PistonHeads, they're both a good barometer for price, also how much would you be happy to pay for it?

I think so re the exhaust, its quite noisy I have noticed :D

were you basing that price on my original error age of 2108? its actually 5/17

he has a 17k p/ex offer so I think my offer will be same in cash

If you could get it for that winner, we've got the M135 (the new one with 2l engine and x drive) and I love it, glad we didn't go for one of these though as I'm not sure my missus would cope with 330bhp+ and RWD

Nothing like, only a main dealer could hope for that. Trade book is about 17k.

Private sale 18k or so.

so as the resident BMW guru is there anything I need to know about these?

I know they are quite well regarded but are there any reliability issues to look, running costs reasonable etc?

Intention is to run as a work car until I retire so prob 5-6 years and 60-70k miles total

Price wise 17k would be decent but not amazing then (I haven't actually made an offer yet but 17k would be my top line)

Thanks

@Rotty, the biggest issue that crops up with the b58 engine is the oil filter housing, this is exacerbated if the oil changes are infrequent (long life).

They take very well to a remap ;)
