Going to look at a one owner 1997 328 convertible in the morning. The car is black with tan leather. She only has 40000 miles and the current owners have all service records. The Kelly Blue Book Private party is $13500. They are asking $14900. Is this car worth $14900, I like to get great prices on cars but this is for my wife as a 2nd car and I want a vehicle we will not have problems with. It has been Garage kept and has been detailed for the sale. Any advice would be apprecated.....Like any problems to look for ect...Thanks shawn

Most people will ask more than what they actually expect to get when selling a car, house, ect. Here's advice after observing my talented, experianced father ...

After you get the car checked out by an offical mechanic (about $60), take the total cost of all the repairs and subtract that from what they're asking. You may find that the new total is around 13500. Tell them that you're mechanic found ______ and the cost to fix everything is ______. Then, remind them that, plus taxes, their asking price goes up to _____ for you and let the show begin!

It sounds like a wonderful car, but (and I have a hard time with this ) keep in mind that it's not the only in the world. <-- whoa, more wisdom from my dad!

Let me know what happens, ok?
