Guys I really appreciate all the input. It's tough to sort through a lot of the minutiae on this website. The only discrepancy on this car is that it's a 2013, that's it honestly. It has every feature and then some it seems. I'll do some digging on how much I'll regret not buying a LCI 2014 or 2015. I have the money for a newer one and I really don't need to settle so there's that...🤔

Just in case you are still considering the 2013 535xi, my 535xi, built 08/12 (August 2012) has an NBT iDrive. It is possible that the one you are looking at has NBT as well. My last 7 on VIN are: DU67718.

Cheers.

This one might have it since it is definitely a late 2013, being mid year 2013 build date. Do you think the sales guy would know that or could ask a tech?

That build date would definitely be NBT.
It looks like it does also have S6NRA, Apps

So just to make sure I'm clear.... if it does have NBT that 2013 is as good as a 2014 when it comes to idrive, but lacks the LCI updates or whatever? Sorry for being naive but I haven't looked it up yet. This German jargon is overly complicated...

So I did some digging and rereading this long thread..
The 2014 LCI mid model refresh was fairly substantial and I've determined I'll wait it out for a 2014+ based on the features added in the article below. A refresh mid cycle is when all the tweaks come in to play, and I want those tweaks. No settling 😁

In case you're bored and want to look at another one, this dealer is willing to go down to $25,200 which is about 500 - $800 under good retail on Blue Book. So as good as you're going to get. It was traded in and sold as certified pre-owned at the 40,000 mile mark, so that's reassuring. It's essentially the same deal as the 2013 if you consider the average of $2,000 of depreciation per year.

2015 M sport. Built in February of 2015 so a late bloomer
head-up display
Comfort Seats of course
Napa leather
LED fog lights,
Harman Kardon speakers.
Of course cold weather and premium packages
Clean Carfax that you can see on the cars.com hyperlink

Let me know if u see any other goodies.

Here are several more pics the dealer sales guy took . looks clean with minimal wear on the driver seat and that's about it. I'm sure the Nappa is going to reflect a little bit more than Dakota.

It's still under CPO warranty, yes? No brainer to me, especially if it has the options you want.

Not necessarily. A lease, sure; warranty extension? Not so much. Pretty much the only thing maintenance wise that would void a warranty is oil changes. That said, IMHO someone caring enough to purchase a CPO car probably takes care of said car. If the car sold a month or so after the production date (2/15) the CPO should be good until 3/20. CPO adds a year with no mileage restriction.

My understanding is that BMW CPO terms changed around 2015 so that CPO coverage can only be transferred to a new owner through a BMW dealer resale, not owner-to-owner or by a non-BMW dealer.
