Your 10 year old E46 M3 with 80,000kms + is not worth low to high $20s

Please get off the crack pipe...

People spend $15++K on cars with rolled back milage, that have almost 300K Km, or $12K on Salvage cars that blow engines in 6 months, so why not spend $20 and just save the trouble! lol

Because 20k+ for a 10 year old M3 with 80,000kms + is ridiculous lol

I bought my cab for $16,500 with 150,000kms on it 2 years ago!

Age has nothing to do with it! A clean E30 M3 would go for more! So people must be CRAZY!!!!

It is what it is; if you want clean and original, you gotta pay! Or just pay less for something beat up, and pay for it later.

I can understand where you're coming from, but I think you just happened to buy at the right time.

I'm curious, what else would you buy that's comparable for that amount of money? Especially if you wanted a manual trans and 4 reasonable size seats? With some exclusivity?

I just did a search in the auto trader and I didn't find much that would interest me as a weekend toy. You're looking at Mustangs, Boxsters, Mazdaspeeds, other BMW models like the 335, etc.

Considering good condition e36 Ms still go for close to 9-10k. I don't think $20k is unreasonable for a good 100-150k mileage example.

High 20s is out of the question unless it has like 50k on it. But your probably not the type of buyer that will pay more for a car like that.

Just keep looking, I don't see a reason to cry about prices just because you don't like them. The market is what it is, sellers are free to ask whatever they want. It just means they won't sell or take longer. Some are okay with that.

The local market dictates what the car is worth. If it's out of your budget, too bad... so sad. LOL!

The last one doesn't have a rebuilt title.. not sure where you read that.

So its just a bitching thread cause you want and can't get right now, just wait and keep looking, I'm sure when you sell a car there will be someone telling you the price is too high, its an open market, just have your cash ready so when one pops up in the condition and price range you can float your ready.

Be happy with what you have and not angry with what you want

For that kind of money I would consider to import a CSL. Defiantly prefer the e46 from the M3 lineup for 6 cylinder.

I definitely agree there's better deals to be had by importing, but then you're paying with time and risk.

Someone should set up a business importing and brokering cars from Germany, the way the JDM guys do... I occasionally browse mobile.de for used cars and the prices are pretty good for BMWs and Porsches.
