BigC is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hi,

I'm considering buying a second-hand imported 330 (either 330i or 330D). I'm worried about the resale value/hassle come time for me to sell it. Has anyone any experience with selling a import BMW, in terms of how easy was it, how much cheaper you had to sell at compared to a UK car with same spec?

If I go for one, just how much cheaper should they be compared to a UK car?


Any advice much appreciated.

it doesnt always effect the price...... (i take it you are from the UK)
so long as it has been looked after there shouldnt be a problem.......
