E46 M3 Sales Tracker: Please Report Your Purchase or Sale!
 
We all know that car price guides such as Kelley Blue Book, NADA, Galves, Edmunds, etc. attempt to estimate the value of a car. However, nothing is more valuable to a buyer or seller than actual sales information.

I know that there have been previous threads here that captured M3 purchase data, but I've found them to be a little less comprehensive than desired. Crucial details such as location, body style, etc. are often missing from such threads.

Therefore, I hope to start a new, more detailed thread. I've tried to create a template that captures the most relevant items that is also quick and easy to complete. I think that it will be invaluable for both buyers and sellers of truly one of the best automobiles ever created! To ensure that this thread is clean and efficient, please only post completed templates. Lastly, since this thread is meant to benefit all members, I welcome your feedback and suggestions on improving the template via PM. Let's make this as useful as possible! Many thanks to all contributors! :thanks:
