Re: BMW M3 1997 Estoril Blue / Dove Grey - 91k Miles 5-Speed Manual / Pennsylvania 19

You are right. I don't understand when people post an ad for a vehicle and not make it detail then not care to answer questions. Detail photos and a descriptive ad makes a seller more trust worthy...

Re: Future collectable for sale In Canada ?

I don't see how this a collectable or even a gem. Your average Joe wouldn't have any benefit. You wouldn't be able to drive it much, need to garage it, and sit on it for years while paying insurance...

If you do the math, with $25,000 down you would be paying $11,000 in interest over the course of 5 years. So yes, if you mean they will get their money, that is right.
