Hello group, noob here but not to the BMW scene. I picked up a 2013 F30 328i with a lousy 26 miles on the OD almost two weeks ago for $27K. I traded in my 13 x1 for it as I missed being in a sedan. The car sat on the lot for two years but they did change the oil, replace the battery and cabin filter before I took delivery. I plan on really breaking it in when I travel to Chicago next month. Glad to be on board and to learn more about the F30's.

Damn two years? That's crazy, why so long?

Either way, congrats on the purchase and welcome.

Wow! Two years? Is it some sort of off beat color that most people don't want, or what?

If it's not a weird car, I'd say you did pretty darn good at that price for an essentially brand new car - congrats!

Not sure why but they have nine other 2013's at around the same price/mileage haha.

Its black sapphire metallic over beige. I know most don't like beige but I like it. I've had at least 5 different BMW's with black interiors so its good to get back into a lighter color interior. Pretty basic 328 with moonroof but I'm happy with it. Reminds me of my old e39's in terms of size.

Wow congrats! It is surprising how often you find cars 1-2 years that are brand new. Heck there is even a brand new 2012 Audi A4 here in Vancouver!

What are the options on the 328 you got?

Not much. Moonroof, fold down rear seats (I think they were standard 2013 on) black sapphire mettalic and that's about it. Still has that new car smell obviously. I thought about pulling a prank on EAG and offer to sell the car to them for $39k sticker price lol.

I'll have to ask my CA but I'll assume they are all 8AT.

If its Braman BMW, their 328s on autotrader etc online often seem to be listed as manuals when in fact they are autos. Probably have 5 listed wrong right now.

Here's 1 listed wrong on their site now, and I see others - http://www.bramanmotorsbmw.com/Vehic...-FL/2449927443

Yeah they have some listed as MT when in fact they at 8AT. They sold it to me as a demo so warranty/maintenance expire 10/1/17 but they did give me an extra 5k miles for warranty. If anything I'll purchase it when the time comes if I decide to keep it for a while longer.

I spent months looking for a good deal on a 6-speed, but I'd say you got a really good deal on your 328i. I'm guessing you saved over $10,000 off MSRP for basically a new BMW. I'd have likely done the same deal if they had a MT, but they are much harder to find. On AutoTrader, out of over 500 F30 328i sedans listed for sale for under $30k, less than 10 are actually 6-speeds.

Believe me, I've learned mistakes from other forum members on bf.c and M5Board.com. "What oil do I use"? "Where can I get carbon fiber tires"? However, I may change the oil at 1500 under my own dime. I am very well prepared for flame on this

Yeah the conventional M/T's are getting harder and harder to find. To be exact they took off $12K from MSRP. Will I mod it? Probably minor mods such as a tune and maybe get some 18's but that's about it.

I appreciate the warm welcome

A car sitting on the lot for 2 years is very surprising.
I know lots of car dealers, and if the car does not sell in 60 days ( 90 days max) they just return it to the auction and hope to break even or lose couple hundred $

I know my dealer had their first F30 demo, a RWD 335 for a long time too, don't think 2 years but long time, they turned it into an accessories model on the show room floor. Salesman said no one wanted RWD in NY.. But that can't be the issue in Miami lol. I would even think in that heat, beige would be a popular interior over black for some people.

Ah, carbon fiber tires! I've been waiting for someone to post a question about this seldom known product.

That is interesting, because this basically means nobody wanted to even test drive the car. Even my special order 435i had 12 miles by the time I got it.. In any case, congrats OP.. Sounds like you got an amazing deal.

Nice! No BMW (or any performance car) deserves to be a garage queen.

CF tires......awesome.....I think you can buy those on the Civic forums.

Good plan on the oil change, I do the same thing on cars I plan to own. Leases I KNOW I will be returning at the end I often don't just cause, well, it's their car, if they don't want to do that maintenance than oh well. VW actually does an oil change at 3k, and Audi does one after the first 5k before going to the 'recommended' 10k schedule, BMW says go for it till 10k right off the bat..... Their car.
