Re: How much would you pay for an 06 M3 ZHP w/ 31k miles?

Wow, it's been 2.5 yrs since I bought my '06 MT with 41k milies for $27.1k. It was the color and option set that I wanted - not necessarily popular with others.

Re: vert with 70k miles. new job 80+ miles a day. buy beater or stay m3?

Agree. Most of my e46 M3 driving is the daily commute. Sure, it would be great to have a different car to rack up the miles but the downside would be all of the seat time in a less inspiring car.

With the understanding that color and the comp package may/may not add value to you, $28k is high to me. Others may disagree. Note that I just bought an '06, nicely equiped with 42k miles for $27.1k.
