I really think you should not drop the price any lower. Its worth your asking price, just be patient. Its not the price, you just have not found the right buyer. Yet.

Re: On the hunt for a newer DD to pair with my E36..Interested in Opinions

If you are not opposed to older cars, get 2002-3 E39 M5. Definitely could get one for around $30K under 50K miles.

Re: 1999 Dakar M3 Coupe Build/Restoration Journal (Long and Picture Heavy)

No, I definitely don't want it shiny. Weird how I have 2 other cars with exactly the same airbag, and never had a problem.
