Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Runs great no problems BMW SF dealership has the car now says everything is in order. I am currently doing inspection 2 and changing xenon bulbs as I think one of them was right at the end of it's life dealership checked both modules they both had no issues.
For comparison, this same car was about $24k, 7 years ago. So to track value, dropping $1k per year. Or so it would seem. They were holding value pretty well, but with the SMG/Vert hate plus the power craze, over the last year theyíve been dropping, just a bit.

I still think you bought well. IMO, this is still a $21k car all day long. Iíve had mine for 7 years (but the lighter TiAG over Imola), and the fun is just beginning, really (donít drive it much). But dealerships donít take these kinds of bets ó they made up the difference on the trade.

A whale of a car for any of these numbers. Well done.

Sale Location (City, State): Poughkeepsie, NY

Seller Asking Price: $9000

Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $7000

Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): $12000

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): This was a NY car for most of its life so their is some surface rust on the underside from likely occasional winter use. Also has some rust below the rear trunk area, rear fenders were pulled terribly in the back and have some rust forming/chipped paint. Front fenders have chipped paint. (This car was super stanced out) Drivers side was obviously re-painted, front hood and bumper are not original. The engine was swapped in from an SMG car due to failure of the original before I got it.



This car was clearly neglected over the years, but was under the same ownership for 8 years before I acquired it. I got a good price based on a mutual friend and the fact that the PO made a terrible attempt at rolling the fenders and wanted the car gone. Still not sure what I am going to do with the car but at this point it has the ability to be a fun daily during the summer months. Sometimes I wish I bought a cleaner example from the start but this cheap example allows me to maintain my e30 needs as well.



Thought I would post this up there for others to read, these cars do pop up every once in awhile for cheap. I honestly was on the look out for a few years, was in a few e36M's before this e46. I was scheduled to view this car within hours of being active on Craigslist FYI.


This was a good deal!!! Iím looking at one in that same area of NY....almost impossible to find a stick e46 M3 in decent shape. The one Iíve got my eye on has 126k, stalgrau on Black leather. Cold weather package, no rust, $2500 in recent maintenance. Havenít run a carfax yet but...

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): Having seen an identical example with an unoriginal interior swapped into it go for $26k the week before, it was easy to justify a price near the sellers asking. I started my search in September. The best advice I can offer is to wait for the right car. Quite a few times in this search did I feel hopeless in finding a truly clean example. Given the markets trends, I feel this car is worth more than what I paid, but still requires some light TLC as any car (even well-kept) of this age does.

100,000

Coupe

Siver

Interior Color:
Black

Manual or SMG?:
Manual

Major Options:
All the bad stuff - Automatic Seats, Sunroof.

Under Warranty? (if yes, please indicate type and remaining coverage):
No

Overall Condition (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor):
Visually - Good - Front bumper has been repainted, there was a hit to a curb or something about 1 feet tall, as the wheel fenders in the front are cracked and the mounting points broken off. Bumper has been painted and is peeling.
Paint is pristine, garage kept, no swirl marks.

Mechanically - Excellet. Bone dry underbody, Subrframe tight as a rock.

Any unusual items that affected value?:
Curb rash - Lots of curb rash on the wheels.
Check engine light - At first it seemed to throw a SAI code, ended up being a gas cap. Told the dealer it needed 3k in maintenance right away.

With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction):
Other dealership - Toyota dealership, posted with stock photos of a Imola Red M3, but was listed as silver.
Called up, got more pictures that are the actual car, came in on the first day of snow, brought it home the same day.

Eastern Illinois, bordering Indiana.

11/2017

Seller Asking Price: $
15,999

Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $
11,000

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):
Be confident. I work on my own cars and i've been on the search for 7 months for a clean m3. I called up the posting with very little expectations as it was misposted, missing photos etc.
Dealer had no interest in the car, being winter, snow and RWD. Took a good 30 minute test drive testing everything from body roll to acceleration on all speeds. Did not do PTI as i trusted my own experience with the cars from previous visits to dealer.
Took a good 200 mile just to get to the dealer and was not disapointed.
Know a price point for everything. When negotiating on the price, be confident and explain why the price has to be brought down. Explain the time and parts that it will cost to do a job. You can pull a couple numbers out of your ass if you're in a other dealership than BMW, but don't go crazy.
An oil change may be $150 - $200, but a head gasket is not $5,000.

I could not be happier...
