to find a car like that up here. more than likely you will be looking for a quite a while.

unless you luck out and one pops up for sale like that(but i doubt it)

I totally agree. Hopefully I might get lucky.

I used to own a 95 Dakar yellow M3 which I sold to Jay. Moved onto an S2000 which I recently sold last year. Now in the market for an old school M3 to clench my thirst. Lol.

Indeed. By any chance you'll part out the BBS CHs?

For all the shit that people say about the e36 m3 and how they'll never be collectible or in demand.... I haven't seen a low KM minty one here for some time, BUT have seen about 3 or 4 members lining up to buy the first one that comes around! Even Low KM US cars are rare now!

Good Luck With your search!

Thats because these members want to pay $10-11k for a low mileage mint car. Which probably isn't going to happen.

I guess they don't really want a car, or they can't put money where their mouth is.

its all about what the market will pay. The days of 18k e36 m3's is long gone

unless you find some super low mileage , garage kept mint example.
it may be sad for current owners(soon to be one) but the market has tanked for these cars. (and rightfully so in most cases)

Well then you should be able to find one no problems right?
Instead of having to wait months.

I haven't seen anyone asking 18k for an e36 m3 in a long time, except for the one on bf.c in the US with like 30k miles or something like that.
Fact is, look at the current cars on the market (In the GTA). They range from $9-12k. and i haven't seen any with less than 200k.

So your probably looking for a unicorn to think you'll find something with low mileage and your long laundry list of things you want done to it.
If you want a really mint one than what your seeing, you should expect to pay another 2-3k over what you see on the market.

But yea, goodluck with that, hopefully a unicorn does pop up, then i guess you'll have to beat the other 3-4 people looking for one? or hope they don't outbid you.


Edit: Actually i did find one for close to 18k, i hadn't seen this one before:

If it does have less than 100k like the ad says, then you should go make an offer of around 15k.

I'm not upset, i actually find it funny to read all your posts for the last couple months that you haven't found a car yet. Yet you seem to be an expert on what m3s should sell for.

SiR

I have a pretty good idea.
And the fact that every car ive walked away from hasnt sold just reinforces my stance.

The cars that go quickly here or anywhere else are priced right(pretty obvious statement yes).
Ones still kickin around are still around for one giant reason. Over priced for what it is.


I have settled on a car to fyi.

I do agree that in general the market isn't hot for an M3 e36 but for we who are old enough to remember the the 1990's was't kind to the e30 M3 market either.

Matter of fact is that the type of M3 the OP is looking for is in demand is rare and is going to command a higher price... and IMHO worth it! but the other 80% of the market is old, tired and will need $$$$ and love to restore, I include myself in the later.

Thats my point. Im not arguing that a very clean low mileage, well taken care of car cant command a premium.

Everything else though is just priced way to darn high now a days for what it is. Will the market pick up for the e36? maybe so. Time will only tell and we really dont know. Though we can definitely agree that they built way more e36 m3's compared to e30 m3's. So I honestly dont see an e30 like comeback.

I like these cars just as much as the next enthusiast. But that doesnt mean I will over pay for one, or the current for sale prices(around here) are in line with what the cars are worth/or will fetch.
One just has to watch the market and see the same over priced cars sitting there month after month.

I don't think they'll be in the same league as the E30 M3 but they will certainly appreciate even though they were produced in big numbers because, even now, there seem to be very few low mileage examples around. This car seems to be primarily used as a DD although I think now people are starting to buy them to keep as garage queens.

not much else is as balanced as a daily in this price range imho

My '96 likes the garage like you mentioned. Had it for 6 years now, 2nd owner and just turned 72kms (Estoril on Black and Minnnntttt). I love it, to be honest, I'd have a rough time letting it go for $25k. Not saying that's what the market will bear by any means but the lower end of what it's worth to me. *wiggle*

I agree. Once my current lease is up next spring, I'd definitely consider getting one for a DD too. I only drive 12K a year anyway so it would last a long time.

our(as in enthusiasts) cars are always worth more to us than it is out in the market ;)

BBS CH Rims are staying on the 330CI as they are for DD.

Very good points on both sides in this post.

Basically everything has a price of value. Depending on condition. Only seller or buyer can judge upon what they think the right value is worth. People tend to rate one car differently to another.

The car I'm looking for is definitely a rare find. Leaving this post does in a way help me get one step closer.

Yep but I went check it twice this weekend through the garage door window(dealer was close) and it isn't pretty as it's looks on the picture but still seems a great car
