Yesterday, I sold a really cool black with black leather interior 2007 BMW 328xi for a client of mine that had to move his vehicle pretty fast. It was a manual transmission and in great condition with Navigation and some other nice bells and whistles found on this model vehicle.
I consign quite a few vehicles for people throughout the year and it’s pretty cool when it works out for both parties like this one did. There was another dealership involved that had a client who was looking for a 2007 328xi and this particular vehicle fit the bill, after we went back and forth a few times trying to figure out a price that would work for everyone involved.
I sell quite a few consignments and I’m beggining to think that I’m partial to BMW’s because not all of the vehicles that I consign or that I sell make it on to CoolCarGuy.com, but this particular one I liked because it was a 6 speed and those are harder to find. However, even though they are harder to find, a manual transmission often hurts the resale since so few people today can drive a stick shift anymore.
It’s a cool vehicle and I thought I would list it here at CoolCarGuy.com with some of the photos that were taken when it was placed online for sale. The 328xi has the nice 6 cylinder motor that BMW has made pretty bullet proof over the years. I’ve sold the 335 line as well with the twin-turbo’s and even though those vehicles are faster, they are not nearly as reliable compared to the 328xi’s 3.0L L6 DOHC 24V motor. Of course, it also had the AWD that people in Colorado have come to love.
At 230-horsepower the all-wheel-drive 328xi came standard with a six-speed manual transmission and a the six-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission was optional. The interior was fitted with Dark Burl Walnut wood trim that appears on the dash, front and rear consoles, doors and rear side panels. A new instrument cluster includes an oil temperature gauge that’s positioned below the tachometer. Optional packages included a Cold Weather Package, Premium Package and a Sport Package.
Here are some of the options that this vehicle came equipped with…
