Is this a good deal for 2013 535i xDrive?

I found a CPO 2013 535i xDrive at the dealer for 27.9k
The car has 52k miles and is accident free with a 06/13 build date. The CPO expires on 08/19

Color: Dark Graphite II/Sophisto Gray
Options: PDC, Cold Weather Package and Navigation

Is this a good deal?

Sounds like a good deal. I'd recommend posting the link for this so we can all get a better look at it.

You can get a really good deal right now for an f10, especially if you are looking into private sales. a 2011 RWD naturally aspirated N52 528i is inarugably the most reliable f10 model and can be picked up for dirt cheap. I'd also look into some 2011-2012 535i's if you can find one with low mileage that was properly maintained.

Thanks guys for the input!

I am leaning towards 2013 model because this MY seems to be the more reliable than 2011 and 2012. Also I prefer the 535 vs 528 solely for the I6 experience and power.

Here is the link to the specific car I am looking at:

From what I've seen/heard, reliability goes like this:

N52 > N55 > N20 > .................................................. ...... > N63

Not to say the N20 is unreliable, but the N55 and N52 are more proven.

This is absolutely right!

A few minor changes, though...

just watched the video. looks like it's still looks nice. since it's still under warranty til 2019 i'd say go for it if it's in your budget.

That looks like a good deal to me.
I paid about that this fall for the same car/mileage options, etc -- without warranty!

Man... thats a lot of car for under $30k...

I don't agree with the N63 haters... I haven't pushed mine too much and its only got 45k on it. I don't foresee it being a 200k miler, but certainly it hasn't given me any issues to date except for some F10 specific eccentricities (battery etc). I wish I could have a LCI car at $27k!

Are LCI Cars better in terms of performance or reliability? I thought the only difference was the upated iDrive controler and some cosmetic changes.

My bad... brain fart. 2014 was LCI. I forget my car is a 2013 sometimes!!!

Sorry that one is not LCI, but certainly a nice car!
