I am going to pick up my M3 this friday.. it's a 2002 model with 30000km on it, and with 19 inches wheel... I originally planned to order a 05 330ci with M package, but then I came across this M3 and it costs 57000 plus tax. This is probably just a little bit more than the 330ci I want to get. I took a look at the M3, test drove it and made the decision right away to get it. I think I had a good deal, afterall, I am paying almost the same as a brand new 05 330ci for a M3 with low mileage. What do you guys think?

You made a good choice although new car is better

Great deal and CONGRATS *th-up*
I hope to trade up to a 2004 M3 in 2006 or something...:confused:
What color did you get?

Great Deal!!! But with a used car...You always get someone else's problems, no matter what

used cars are fine, get it with CPO from BMW

if its under warranty, who cares, they'll fix any problem

with 30k, its pretty much brand new - financially, way way smarter to buy a little bit used like your did.. good choice

Yeah I know, everyone would love to have a brand new car, but just can't afford a new M3. And I think M3 is a M3, it's in a class of its own. I mean, I believe years down the road, when I am driving this car on the road, it will still be a classic!! Don't know if the same can be said for the 330ci.....

I got the midnight blue color, can't be really picky on color when buying a second-hand car... But I think it's still good...

And the car is going to be checked and certified by BMW dealership, the car only had 1 owner, in his 30's with a family, hopefully, no problems will be passed down to me.

Nope. 330CiC would be a convertible. :P

And getting the used M3 was a great choice, have fun with it.

PS: Have you checked the insurance premium for it yet? Hopefully you have...

Insurance *thmbsdwn*
That is what would be a deal breaker. If it costs more than 1500-2000 a year then *sad*

I bought my car with just over 10K on the odo. Same as a few people that I know of. Saved a few bucks too!

i didn t mean that it will be a lemon, but have it checked by someone you trust and know well, as dealerships can't be trusted. My father works at a Chrysler dealership, and you should see what they do to cover up their lemons, the customer never knows, until they buy it... But on the otherhand, its a M3 so it should be fine and dandy... but like Jay said, check the premium...

the insurance premium is 2500 dollars a year, which is not bad at all...

That's great especially if you store it in the winter(premium goes down)....man I pay $800 a year for full coverage, if I could get an M3 for $2500 a year full coverage....*mw*
