NEED HELP: Is this 2018 M4 worth $50,000




Hi Everyone!

Would really appreciate if you guys can give me an insight about this car.
Do you guys think that this car is a good buy for the price? Although it is not CPO, would this be a deal breaker?


This car was leased by an owner who smoked a lot.

For me, it would depend on how bad the residual smoke odor is. I would guess it's pretty bad given where they have it priced, which would make it a no-go for me.

Some people like the rich smokey flavor of air. Are you one of them?

Looks like a fair price TBH. Car is fully loaded with ZCP, Exec, and DCT.

Looks beautiful, I mean it's just perfect. Is not having a CPO a big deal for you? That's really low mileage and the fact it has no CPO means to me it probably has been tuned which would make it ineligible for CPO.

The heavy smoke smell and no CPO means I would have a hard pass on it. Tough to turn down, but I would hold out for a CPO and no smoke smell.

Not sure. It was just a leased vehicle I think.

Those usually have the CCBs, fewer miles, and were first registered in NJ. This one seems looks to have a good bit of maintenance at the dealer per the carfax, which means itís probably just a regular lease.

Thanks for your opinions. I want to buy an M4, but I want to make sure that I am making the right decision by asking all of you your thoughts about this car.

Smoke smell is a big no no. Even if it is not horrible when you get into the car on a cool day, there are few things more horrible than getting into a heavy smoker's car after it's been sitting in the sun several hours in summer.

Seriously, not a chance.

Interior also looks like it has a fresh coat of lacquer to complete that smoky, greasy rental car vibe.

Pass OP. Don't compromise at all, there are so many out there.
