View Full Version : any wanna trade cab for coupe ?

Sun, Apr-01-2007, 06:31:53 AM
I love the vert, but its too wet here in the winter and too hot in the summer. plus i need a roof rack. clearly i didnt' think out the convertible thing in much detail.

anyway, i have a black / cinnamon 2003 (vin says 10/2002) e46 convertible with 46,xxx miles. Heated seats, 19" wheels and BT, 6 speed.

the car is in excellent condition. it was easily the cleanest 02/03 that i had seen while shopping about a year ago which made buying it easy - i got it from NXCESS in Houston, TX

i would like a coupe, whatever is in and around the value of my vert.
i would also consider 545i or e39 m5 and possibly z4 M coupe but i would really prefer to trade down and even get some $ out of it.

i really love the m3 though and dont have to get rid of it- so if anyone is looking for a vert please let me know ! the backup plan is to keep it and trade it in a year from now for an 08 !

Man, I would've done this trade if the mileage was a little lower. I was looking to get into a convertible early this year. Good luck on your trade!!

Are you in Houston as well? Don't know if you want an E36 M3 coupe.

For starters, I have a
95 M3 Vortech Supercharged w/ S52 (3.2L) motor 330rwhp on dyno
5 spd
131k miles on chassis
50k miles on motor
3.45 diff
Ltw flywheel
Cosmos black/black int.
NO accidents/CLEAN Title
CA only car...no rust.
Tinted windows/NEW windshield
SSR GT1 18" ltw forged wheels
NO tracks/autox

Also, as a side note have a 95 M3 arctic silver M3 170k miles on chassis. Also, VERY clean inside/out. about $10k in mods... NO forced induction. See details here:

Consider Trade + $$ for your vert of course.

PM me if interested.

m32 your car is gorgeous - i originally searched for alpine white but couldn't find one in texas and refused to buy a car unseen.

let me know if you change your mind - i know that this kind of mileage is very average for this car of this age - but it runs extremely strong, has been impeccably maintained and not had any mechanical issues to date.


nice car man - i need the car to be pretty solid and the mileage and FI would make me too nervous. ( i do a 200 mile trip about twice a month)

but i would seriously look at
M coupe (shoe)
X5 sport
one of the cleanest e30's on the face of the earth
E24 m5

in a perfect world i would make enough money to afford whatever M3 i want including the e92. but in reality my car payment is an f'n lot of $.

supercharging you dont gotta worry about even if you are making 200 mile trips. just dont stomp on the gas.

Just so you guys can see -

these were the pictures when i bought the car back in august. Ive put about 8k miles on the car and it has been garaged daily.
the car is exactally like this but now has the 19" wheels and 46.667 miles.
