15k: 2Good 2B True? 2011 BMW 335d Sedan


 The discount bin on your local craigslist is a scary place.  Behind every great deal lurks a Nigerian prince looking for his next victim, but sometimes a good deal on a car might actually be a good deal.  Like this 2011 BMW 335d Sedan offered for $15,900 in SF Valley, CA via craigslist.


Even with an automatic gearbox BMW's e90 generation 335d  is a fun way to go fast and save on fuel.  The 3.0 liter turbo diesel inline-6 isn't the soot belching penalty box your father owned, and it puts out 265 horsepower, 425 ft-lbs of torque and hits 60 mph in 6.4 seconds -- or about as fast as the 2005-2007 330i. 



This one has a salvage title and a seller with a grasp of English only marginally better than my understanding of Serbian, but hey...a deal is a deal? Right?

  1. Ben's car is scary, as El Jefe wrote. But these 3-Ds(!) are some of the best diesels I've ever driven. Just fantastic. Maybe find a different one for sale, though...

  2. If these had a three pedal option, I'd own one already.

  4. I'd guess the SES light comes on within a 15min test drive.

  5. The listing does show a salvage title; maybe theft recovery?

    1. Thus "This one has a salvage title and a seller with a grasp of English only marginally better than my understanding of Serbian, but hey...a deal is a deal? Right?"

  6. Ultimate dieseling machine? A bimmer? What about a bully-dogged 12v pushing 1200hp and farting coal all over the place? Im sure its a wonderful machine but ultimate is pushing it.
