Used BMW for Sale Under $5000 Near Me

1. BMW 5 Series

The 5 Series model has very good deals when searching for used BMWs. The BMW 5 series has aimed to be one of the best by proving that luxury and performance can be in one. It is important to set a budget when looking to purchase a used BMW 5 Series, with a well-preserved 550i model typically ranging from $10,000 to $15,000 for those with relatively low mileage. It is one of the best handling cars in its class and delivers a well-rounded nature of agile handling and a luxurious ride. It made the top ten best car list for Car and Driver. BMW’s stellar midsize car has all the right moves. BMW offers a search on their website for certified pre-owned vehicles. Although this search is mainly for cars that are not more than four years old and with over 80,000 miles, this is a very convenient way to find a used BMW. The certified pre-owned program does come with great benefits from buying a used car at a BMW dealership. Step up to a 5 Series and you’ll get an unassailable mix of comfort, performance, and prestige. With crisp looks and entertaining driving dynamics, this entry-luxury car has furthered BMW’s reputation as one of the leading makers of sporty high-quality cars. Uncompromised performance comes from a 184-hp inline-six. The 525 models abound with refined power. Come 2003, power levels climb as BMW introduces its second-generation 5 Series. This model is a bigger step forward offering more luxury, room, and power with minimal changes were in store for 2004 5 Series. Step up to a 2005 5 Series, and you might not step out. With the economy-minded 525s enjoying five extra horses, an increase of 15 horsepower for the 525’s sibling, and the debut of the 525xi, torque and handling prowess are amplified. Now the 530 and 545 benefit from increased power. With the chassis unchanged save for the 530’s switch from conventional to run-flat tires, 2006 5 Series improvements focus on the aesthetics and engine performance. Integration of BMW’s new 3.0-liter N52 engine into the 525s results in no loss of power but increased fuel efficiency. The 530’s power jumps to a potent 255-hp. A new 215-hp I6 with even better fuel efficiency will be found in the 525. The subtle changes were somewhat course corrected with the latest version of the 5 Series. A more aggressive facelift and improved materials quality returned the 5 Series to its proper place.

The Intelligent AWD system offers peace of mind and safety in adverse driving conditions. It also has great features such as rain-sensing wipers, xenon headlights, heated steering wheel, and heated front and rear seats. It also comes with the Premium Package and cold weather package.

1.3. 2001 BMW 5 Series 530i - 154,416 mi

As we continue to explore the realm of the 5 Series, there is a growing number of options available for anyone looking for a used BMW around $5,000. Our find of a 2001 BMW 530i is one with relatively low mileage, especially for its age. With 154,416 miles, it might be possible to assume that this car has had an easy life, depending on how many previous owners there have been. Cost with how much the car is worth has not yet been verified, as even the highest KBB value is still below the price point set for all cars in this review. The car is Cosmos Black Metallic (303) with a black leather interior, and poplar wood trim. This combination of colors gives the car an elegant look, despite its age. This is the first year of the facelift for the E39, which includes redesigned front and rear bumpers, and adaptive headlights. It is also the first year of the standard Business CD player, and no cassette drive in the dash. With the 3.0L M54 engine, this car should have similar power to the 2003 525i, despite the extra weight of the car. While the car looks to be in good shape, there are some flaws. The rear driver's side window regulator is broken, leaving the window immovable in the up position.

2. BMW X5

The BMW X5 is a mid-size luxury SUV produced by BMW. The first generation of the X5, with the chassis code E53, made its debut in 1999. It was BMW’s first SUV and it also featured all-wheel drive and was available with either manual or automatic transmission. In 2006, the second generation X5 was launched, known internally as the E70, featuring the torque-split capable xDrive all-wheel drive system mated to an automatic transmission. In 2009, the X5 M performance variant was released as a 2010 model. BMW branded the X5 as a Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) rather than an SUV to emphasize its on-road ability despite its size. I have selected three X5 models to be included in this essay: the 2009 BMW X5 xDrive30i, the 2003 BMW X5 3.0i, and the 2004 BMW X5 3.0i. This is to enable an easy comparison to be made between two cars of similar build but with a price difference of around $15,000, thus determining whether you need to pay top dollars for a better car or if the three older X5 models still provide a punch per value. Additionally, considering a used BMW X5 from a private seller, such as a 2004 BMW X5 3.0i in Miami Beach, FL, could offer a unique value proposition.

2.1. 2009 BMW X5 xDrive30i

The MSRP for this car is between $41,500 - $68,000. You should expect to pay between $33,000 and $53,000 for a 2009 X5, depending on features and mileage. The estimated monthly payments for a 2009 BMW X5 xDrive30i could range from $486 to $759 a month and that's with 20% down and a $300 car payment for 60 months. Don't forget to factor in insurance costs as this vehicle falls into the luxury class of vehicles, insurance payments may be higher than your standard car. The final "hidden" cost is the X5 BMW is a premium vehicle so often times parts and service can be more costly than your average vehicle. That's why it's important to do your research into whether you can afford to maintain the vehicle over time. This is a key decision when purchasing any used car, however since a used BMW still falls into the luxury category of vehicles, this cost can be higher than your standard car. Weigh these factors when determining how much you are willing to spend for the right 2009 BMW X5 xDrive30i.

2.2. 2003 BMW X5 3.0i

The ride of the X5 is a comfortable and quiet one. The X5 is known for having good on-road and off-road capability, giving it the required versatility in operating in all conditions. The X5 has double-wishbone suspension at the front wheels and a lightweight multi-link integral V suspension at the rear. Rack and pinion steering and excellent brake systems make for a highly manoeuvrable vehicle. StepOn speed-sensitive power steering technology helps with steering and provides the driver with extra comfort, the steering wheel is easier to turn at slow speeds and becomes firmer as speed increases.

The X5 3.0i offers dynamic stability control, all-wheel drive and hill descent control. The all-wheel drive system is permanently engaged, which is different to most all-wheel drive vehicles, it also has steptronic manual selection. The geartronic manual allows the driver to choose whether they want to drive in full automatic mode or manually shift up and down gears, the steptronic system allows this to be done without a clutch. This in comparison to some of the competition, the Volvo XC90 and the VW Touareg is a good ASC system.

The 2003 BMW X5 3.0i is a good vehicle, designed and manufactured by auto giant BMW, a car that performs admirably on the road and delivers the desired status. It is a mid-sized SUV, which BMW has made an effort to give a sporty feel. This is complimented by having all the controls laid out towards the driver, allowing for easy access to all controls thereby giving the sporty car feel.

2.3. 2004 BMW X5 3.0i - 246,198 mi

The 2004 BMW X5 3.0i is one of the BMW's X5 model variants. The 3.0i is powered by a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline engine. This car officially came out in late 2003. This car has a 6-speed manual transmission, which is very fuel-efficient and gains a better acceleration point. The 2004 BMW X5 3.0i is rear-wheel drive and has an all-wheel drive option. This BMW X5 model variant is now on sale at BUC. This used SUV is priced. This price is still negotiable. This car has gone a very low number of miles. He only drove it until 24,000 miles.

This 2004 X5 3.0i is very good for those who are looking for a levee type X5 with a low price.

3. BMW 3 Series

BMW 3 Series are among the models popular among car enthusiasts. The 3 Series sedans combine luxury and performance in a way that few cars can match. With their engines’ horsepower and torque as well as a driver-adaptive transmission and suspension, a 3 Series compares with other entry-level luxury cars such as the Mercedes-Benz C-class, Lexus IS, or Audi A4. With six different body styles that range in performance, there is a 3 Series for everyone.

Step up to the 330xi, and you get all the same equipment aside from the transmission and steering wheel, as well as AWD, for just $1200 more. 3.1. 1999 BMW 3 Series 328i - $2,900 An excellent choice among the compact sport-luxury sedans. This car is powered by a 2.8-liter/193-hp DOHC 24-valve inline-6 mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. 3.2. 2020 BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive - $23,000 This car has been covered already above.

Known for its balance of performance, luxury, and comfort, the E46 3 Series is a reliable BMW that offers the joy of owning a BMW without breaking the bank.

3.1. 1999 BMW 3 Series 328i - 117,888 mi

The 1999 BMW 328i for sale is a European spec car. These cars were often quite different from the US spec cars, and the differences are typically very apparent. This car has the black interior with aluminum cube trim, and the seats are fabric, not leather. This car runs and drives great, and the transmission works smoothly. It has 117,898 miles and comes equipped with a 2.8L inline 6 engine giving around 200 horsepower. The dash reads 189k kilometers as this car is Canadian, so it has both the KM cluster and MPH as it's originally from Vancouver. This car has style 37 wheels, which are very sought after in the BMW world. It's had a considerable amount of maintenance, all documented with receipts. The car recently has gotten new brake pads/rotors, calipers, brake fluid, control arm bushings, coolant reservoir, expansion tank, water pump and hoses, power steering pump and hose, exhaust, and a fresh oil change. There's been a considerable amount of suspension work done as well. New shocks/struts, front control arms/tie rods, rear subframe bushings, and a steering rack, all that has brought good feeling suspension feeling that is tight and responsive. This car will make a great daily driver and is ready to hit the road.

3.2. 2020 BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive - 81,910 mi

The BMW 3 Series 330i xDrive was introduced in 2020. This model is quite different from its predecessor, the 328i. The first change you'll notice on the new 330i xDrive is the new 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine. Do not let the 2.0-liter engine fool you, this 4-cylinder engine will produce more power than the previous generation's inline-6. This new engine is rated at 255 hp and 295 lb-ft torque. This is an increase of 7 hp, but more importantly, a 37 lb-ft torque increase. All of this power is achieved at lower rpm's too. This is thanks to the BMW's EfficientDynamics engineering and a precise and fast spooling turbo from TwinScroll technology. The increase low-end torque and the quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission will propel the 330i from 0-60 in about 5.3 seconds. This is 0.8 seconds faster than the previous generation xi model. All of this increase in acceleration and does not come at the cost of fuel efficiency. This model will average around 28 mpg, while the new designation xDrive model maintains a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution. This is a huge increase from the 328i xDrive model for only a minimal increase in price. The 3 Series' superb value lies in its driving experience, says the expert review from JD Power. They claim this car "Defines the Compact Sport Sedan". This new model 330i xDrive drives smoother and quieter than its predecessor. The all-new body design is more rigid and aerodynamic. Couple the perfect weight distribution with the new body design and wider wheelbase, this car feels very planted in any condition. The new generation xDrive system is much more advanced. Using data from wheel speed sensors and engine management system, the new xDrive system can predict wheel slip before it happens and divert power to the wheels with traction in milliseconds. This new system has been said that it is so quick and efficient that in average driving conditions the driver will not notice or feel that it is an all-wheel-drive system. This is extremely important for BMW buyers who live in areas with adverse weather conditions, or those who participate in Driving Schools at BMW's Performance Center and prefer to drive a BMW year-round.

3.3. 2006 BMW 3 Series 325xi - VA 220,323 mi

The 2006 3 Series 325xi comes with a 2.5-liter, 184-hp, I6 powertrain with 175 lb-ft of torque. The base of 325xi is a 2.5-liter inline six-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission (an extra $1275, but well worth it) and xDrive all-wheel drive. An excellent and free-revving engine, the I6 generates 185 pound-feet of torque at 3500 rpm, and has proven to be adequate for most drivers. The 2006 3 series is available with a gasoline engine only, but the 325xi automatic and 2006 325i models are California certified as partial zero-emission vehicles, or PZEVs. PZEVs focus on SULEV emission levels and include a 15-year/150,000-mile warranty on emission-related components. The base has two transmissions, both of which are notch more than their competition. The automatic transmission is fine for hassle-free situations, but if driving enjoyment is a priority, spend the extra money on the five-speed manual (or in the 330i, a six-speed manual). The manual transmissions are slick and precise, and although some may be bothered by the automatic's slight delay, manual shifting with the Steptronic feature provides an easy transition and the ability to make your drive more fun. In terms of fuel economy, the 325xi is rated at 18 City/25 Highway, and emits 3.7 tons of CO2 annually. This is great for a small luxury car with AWD, and the PZEV model achieves a SULEV rating which is even better for the environment.

3.4. 2006 BMW 3 Series 330xi - 154,997 mi

The 2006 3 Series 330xi is equipped with a 3.0-liter, 225-horsepower inline-six with variable valve timing and is all-wheel drive. It comes with a 6-speed manual, but an automatic transmission is optional. The 2006 3 Series 330xi is a carryover from the previous year, so the exterior and interior are virtually unchanged. The 330xi sedan is the only 3 series, not including the M3, that comes with the more powerful inline-six, as opposed to the 325's 2.5-liter 6-cylinder. The 330xi differentiates itself from the 325xi by a margin of about $3,000 in terms of price, yet only offers a 3-horsepower increase from last year's model as well as the full-time all-wheel-drive system. The 330xi was largely critiqued for the value in this respect, and it was criticized for being both unnecessarily expensive and hardly distinguishable from the 325xi. High points for the 330xi include the legendary 3-series handling and balance and a comfortable interior. Low points are the car's lack of significant features to make it stand apart from the 325xi and the steep price increase. Step up to the rear-wheel-drive 330i instead, and you'll get a taste of what the 330xi should have been at a much cheaper price. 330xi's are becoming quite rare in used markets and often are still sold at high prices. However, with enough patience, a good deal can be found. In the case of purchasing a 330xi, it may make more sense to look for a 330i or a well-equipped 325xi. Buyers of the 330xi should watch out for XI specific models which have rack and pinion steering, not found in typical 330i models.

3.5. 2005 BMW 3 Series 325i - 89,702 mi

As we head into the 3.5 generation of BMW 3 series (1998-2006), we begin to see more E46 chassis vehicles. It just so happens that the first 325i on our list is just that. The E46 chassis BMW was produced from 1997-2005. This particular vehicle has a small engine with a big name, the M54. The 2.5L engine 184hp engine is not known for its reliability. However, the 89,702 miles on this engine are still below the vehicle's lifetime expectancy. With no major motor problems occurring prior to this vehicle's mileage, the car still has some life left in it. This motor still has enough power to feel better than your average econobox and will likely last until future costly repairs are needed. The longevity of this car will likely depend on how well these repairs are handled. A good DIY mechanic should be able to keep this car on the road for a while. A mechanic without access to cheap parts will not be able to do the same.

This black-on-black 2005 BMW 325i is described as being in good condition with 89,702 miles on its engine. This could be a fantastic buy for the right person. Unfortunately, we do not get much more description than that. This particular dealer has the vehicle listed at $6998, which is above our $5000 price point. This car was a 3 owner vehicle bought in Texas. No accidents are reported, and the car appears to have been well maintained. If the dealer's price is negotiable, this could be a great find.

3.6. 2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive - 187,610 mi

Finding a 2011 BMW in good condition at this low price range is a tall order, but a 2011 328i xDrive with nearly 190,000 miles has appeared on the market in Ohio for just under $5000. The all-wheel drive system should still be in good working condition, and this might be one of the better deals on the list assuming the car has had its proper maintenance. A mechanic's opinion would be very valuable in this case, as the major repairs could easily surpass the value of the car. High mileage and year puts it at 7th place out of 9 recommendations, but its relative safety as an AWD vehicle and a price tag that is just over the $4k ascension price put it on this list. Given that this car usually retails at a price nearly twenty times higher than the ascension price, if you can swing the possible repairs, both the potential investment and savings are monumentally high.

4. BMW X3

It gives a good overview and outline of what I can expect in a used X3. BMW rates the 3.0i 0-60 in 7.8 seconds, and it gets 28 MPG on the highway. It is 4WD and has HID lamps, no complaints here. I am not a huge fan of the styling changes from 04 to 05, but it is not a deal breaker for the right price. 214,086 miles is a very large number for me to want to take on a car, but it is priced at $4,500 which is very appealing, also since the owner has all of the records and CARFAX. It has the Premium Package, Leather power/heated seats, Moonroof, Rain Sensor auto wipers, and auto dimming mirrors. It also has the Sport Package, and comes with 4 snow tires on BMW alloy wheels. This is very appealing considering the AWD. The 07 X3 is a bit out of reach being priced at around $10,000 vs what I want to spend. The difference between the 04-06 and 07 is the very noticeable body and interior redesign. It is a good choice for someone who doesn’t mind spending a bit more money. The X3 3.0si goes 0-60 in 7.6 seconds, and also gets good gas mileage. In Atlanta, GA, BMW X3 cars for sale start at competitive prices, offering a variety of options for potential buyers. Keeping an eye on a price drop can significantly enhance the deal, especially for those looking for used BMW X3 models. I hope that there are a few of these for sale at a lower price in the next few months.

4.1. 2007 BMW X3 3.0si - 165,168 mi

The 3.0si model features the fabulous N52 inline 6-cylinder motor that's been used in a variety of BMW models. From the factory, the 3.0si comes with the GM6X Six-Speed automatic transmission with Steptronic, which gets poor marks in regards to reliability. An LCI (facelift) was performed for the 2006 model year, and the 2007 model comes with a variety of packages, adding to the options list. As expected, maintenance is not cheap around the 100k+ mileage range, and that fact has scared away many used buyers, but the 3.0si X3 is a strong performer with loads of BMW feel encoded into it. Unfortunately, repair costs and maintenance are not cheap due to the fact most engine repairs may require the engine being lifted from the vehicle. This is often required as access to the rear of the engine is almost nonexistent. With the tight interior packaging, 4×4 components, and "overbuilt" design, maintenance is often times more complicated than it’s required to be. This vehicle is much better off serviced by a competent independent BMW mechanic than at the dealership. Despite this, don’t let the potential of high maintenance costs deter you from ownership as prices for an X3 are often dramatically low for the value of car received.

For 2007, BMW debuted a second generation of its compact SUV, the X3. This time, the X3 was much more successful in the North American market. The E83 chassis was designed in 2004 by Jordan Meadows and went into production in 2007. Originally, it was to be a vehicle slotted between the X1 and the X5, but BMW later changed its plans and made it larger than the X1. Whether BMW will create an X4 is still to be determined, but our sources say an X4 is on BMW's future models list. This E83 chassis is longer and wider than its predecessor, and BMW has stated it now has a better dynamic approach over the Land Rover Freelander, which is one of its main rivals. Unfortunately, this X3 still uses an electronic throttle.

4.2. 2005 BMW X3 3.0i - 214,086 mi

The all-black interior of this X3 is in great shape with the exception of the driver's seat that is showing some wear. The exterior of this X3 is finished in rare Flamenco red metallic paint, which is contrasted by blacked-out kidney grills and window trim. This X3 sits on new Bridgestone Dueler tires and just received a complete brake job less than 5000 miles ago. Pictures do not show, but the vehicle comes with both the OEM 17" wheels and a set of style 45 18" wheels with snow tires. This X3 needs nothing but a new owner who will appreciate and carry on with the level of maintenance that has been executed.

This X3 was meticulously maintained with an open checkbook. Recent maintenance includes: new power steering hoses, power steering pump, valve cover gasket set, VANOS system, front control arm bushings, drive belt, fuel filter, and cabin microfilter. After spending $2500 on these essential maintenance items, this X3 is now mechanically sound and operating like new. All maintenance records are available.

Featuring a 3.0L V6 engine, the 2005 BMW X3 3.0i offers a desirable balance of sport and utility. With 228hp and AWD, this X3 can sprint from 0-60 in just 7.8 seconds while still delivering up to 30% better fuel economy than a typical SUV. This rare 6-speed manual transmission X3 is the enthusiast's version of the more common automatic.
