CarMax Offering 4k Over Dealers

Wild time we're in, I'm selling my 2017 Silverstone II M3 Comp with 42,222mi and CarMax has beaten all five BMW dealerships in my area by 3-4k.

If you're in the market to get out of the F8X market, CarMax might be your out.

42,222 mi DCT 2017 M3 Comp (no exec or driver assist)

KBB was around $44k as an instant cash offer (very similar to all of the BMW dealers around me), CarMax was $48k on the dot after a 20 minute inspection.

I got the CarMax quote first and used that as muscle against the dealers and none of them would meet the CarMax offer.

Get quotes from Vroom and Carvana as well. These places are begging for inventory.

Carmax was a joke for me, went this past Monday and was offered $46k on my 18 M4 Comp with 30k miles. Every dealer in the area has offered me $56k, it was an insult.

Folks here mentioned Carmax hates modified vehicles, so that's probably why the offer was so low. They should have just told me that before making me go through the process then waiting 20 minutes while they ran the numbers. Total waste of time.

Also try ALgo.com

They view the car over zoom and offer you a cash price picked up.

I got offered $2K over carfax, but if I sold I don't know what I'd get for the price so I held onto the car for the time being.

I just sold my 18 M3 comp DCT 39k miles to Carmax for $59.5k. Car had no accident history but did have a small scrape/scratch on front bumper.

They beat out the BMW dealer by about $1k.

second Carvana.. they gave me a big premium on the offer and listed the reasons why (they don't mention not modified so maybe you will fare better?)
