    That was indeed a DE car, it's being sold by a dealer in BC, who probably has no idea.

    Some misinformation about those early VIN's...

    I'm the first registered owner of 0024, with the assistance of another member of the forum that had connections within BMW he was able to confirm that my car was originally a "press" car, then loaned to a BMW executive before it was offered for sale through a southern California BMW dealership...the car was never one of the "Experience" cars.

    It appears ignorance is bliss.

    I posted a link to one of the discussions on here regarding the early VIN cars on the listing, so the bidders should/could have been informed purchasers. Went for over 170k with fees and duty.

    I saw your link and was surprised it wasn't discussed further.

    I thought someone on this thread expressed interest in the car that was sold last week on BaT. I came across this one this morning and thought the asking price (from a dealer that typically is high) was quite reasonable for a black/crema with low miles. Not sure what all original equipment they have and it does not have PP, but looks very nice ib the pictures and would be worth while for someone looking to take a closer look.

    Bidding was quite robust! $180,007 plus $5K fee. Pretty good!

    At this point, 15 years out of warranty, why would a Euro be worth any less?

    One might make the argument a European version could be worth more due to the ease of exporting them back to Europe where values are higher.

    That's very true, and I think it was a very fair price for the car, though more than I thought it would bring.

    Interestingly the bidder has zero comments or bids for Ny other vehicles. Maybe itís going back to Europe.

    I agree with both of you! Great price... could be heading home. Edit: great price for seller. Must have been good for buyer too.

    If the buyer wants to bring the car back to Europe, it would cost him about 40% in import duties, VAT, insurance, etc. So itís not really interesting. You can find a Euro car for much less in Europe now.
