Putting a subwoofer in a BMW 3 series?

I am about to purchase a 2003 bmw xi and i have a sub that i would like to put in it. Would it be possible to keep the stock headunit as i still want to have the steering wheel controls or would i need to put my aftermarket in?

Is this a good price for a used 2008 BMW 535 xi?

I’m 17 and a junior in highschool (gonna be a senior next year) and my dad said he would buy me a vehicle as long as its under 12,000 dollars. I was looking and i found a 2008 BMW for 8000. It has 47,000 miles. Is this a good deal?

HI, IN THE NEWEST KELLY BLUE BOOK. APRIL-JUNE 2013. A 2008 B.M.W. 535XI SEDAN IS GOING FOR $20,400 .AVERAGE MILEAGE IS BETWEEN 67,000-72,000 MILES. *** THIS CAR SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE ! *** I WOULD GET A CAR FAX, BRING IT TO A MECHANIC . A B.M.W. DEALER MECHANIC ,IF POSSIBLE. IF IT’S WORTH ABOUT $20,400 , WHY WOULD THEY WANT JUST $8,000 ? SOMETHING’S NOT RIGHT .

Sharon asks…

What is the functionality of the BMW Valet Parking key?

I have 328 xi 2008 model. I wanted to know what exactly is the valet parking key? is it the metal key or the plastic key?

- can someone tell what is the difference between the functionality of actual key and valet key?

Administrator answers:

Plastic key is probably for your wallet as a spare in case you lose/forget master key. As far as the “valet” key, it should be mentioned in your owners manual, but all you need to do is try it in your glove box or trunk… If it doesn’t work in glove box or trunk, but works in ignition, then it is the valet key. Some valet keys are designed to place cars into a de-tuned state so that car can’t be raced by valet driver (like in Ferris Buehler’s Day Off). So, some BMW keys may do this as well, but for the most part they appear to keep a valet driver (or someone else you don’t trust) from having access to your glove box or trunk.

Administrator answers:

You can’t be serious… That is an amazing deal but I guarantee there are problems with it. There is no way it is in good shape at a price like that. I just got a 2003 325xi with 110,000 miles for 6K in perfect condition. Theres no way that car is only 2K more even if it was kinda beat up.

Heres a rough estimate of what a car like that would normally cost:

http://www.kbb.com/bmw/5-series/2008-bmw-5-series/535xi-sedan-4d/?condition=excellent&vehicleid=196932&intent=buy-used&mileage=45000&category=sedan&pricetype=private-party

For 12K you can find a 2006 or maybe 2007 but they will have almost 100,000 miles. But 5 series are much more over priced, and in my opinion not as reliable or fun to drive. I would look at getting a 3 series if I were you. They are much more fun to drive and are cheaper to buy. Honestly, if you bought this one for 8K it would probably be a salvage title and you would end up pouring thousands more dollars into it.

Administrator answers:

For a 535xi hell yeah, AWD too I would be in heaven better jump on that, but make sure you take it to a BMW dealership to have a presale checkup done on it, and if your happy with the problems it may have then go for it
