Other Comments : I picked up the car on August 9th, and on September 14th the car developed rod knock from a spun bearing. As it's an 04, it has the updated bottom end, but it seems it didn't help. Since I needed to do the reinforcement, and I wanted to do the manual swap, the car is now getting a full teardown and rebuild.

Would you mind posting a couple pics inside and out? I'm curious to see what kind of condition you can get in this price range.

Referenced http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showpost.php?p=106789 This LGS Blue hardtop manual with 100k miles went in a private party sale for $13,500. I offered $11,500 based on needed repairs and lack of a manual trans. Dealer stated they simply didn't have that much room and offered "their lowest possible price" of $13,300 out the door, which I accepted about 15 minutes ago. I've wanted a Laguna Seca Blue e46 M3 since it came out when I was a sophmore in college. It's going to be a great weekend car!

Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):
As the car was interstate, I made sure I did my bargaining while chatting with the owner before I went to see it. I would have less power to bargain in-person as I had outlaid money to get there and would be more likely to try to make a deal so those costs wouldn't be thrown away (and pay for a return air fare). Price sounded reasonable to me so I jumped on a plane and flew up to check it out.
The car already had 996 Brembos up front, Bilstein/Eibach suspension fitted not long ago, sub-frame repair, genuine CSL wheels, and various trim pieces replaced for brand new ones. Couldn't say no, so I drove it home!

Hang in there because I'm about to post two purchases. One was totaled recently and I also recently became a member =P

One that was totaled (appraised for 15,200 by insurance)
Are you the Buyer or Seller?:Buyer
Model Year: 2002
Mileage: 92,000 when purchased/100,500 when totaled
Coupe or Convertible?:Coupe
Exterior Color: Carbon Black
Interior Color: Black
Manual or SMG?: Manual
Major Options: Xenons, 19" rims, heated seats, Harmon Kardin
Under Warranty? (if yes, please indicate type and remaining coverage): No
Overall Condition (Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor):Fair
Any unusual items that affected value?: Dinan front and rear strut bars, MVR lightweight rims
With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction): Dealer
How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?: Friend sent me the listing

Sale Location (City, State): Daytona FL
Sale Date (Month, Year): May 2018
Seller Asking Price: $11,700
Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $10,600
Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): $13,500
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): I used the fact that it was in poor cosmetic condition to bring down an already good deal. Cosmetics are easy to fix. Had no blowmotor which was only a $90 fix. No one wanted a car that looked this rough but the drivetrain was immaculate. I touched up paint and interior, and ended up getting thousands more.

With Whom Did You Complete the Sale? (Private, BMW Dealership, Other Dealership, Auction): Private
How Did You Find Seller/Buyer?: Craigslist

Sale Location (City, State): Sarasota FL
Sale Date (Month, Year): January 2019
Seller Asking Price: $17500
Final Sales Price (amount seller received): $17500
Est. Published Value, if known (KBB, Edmunds TMV, NADA, etc.): $15,300
Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.): This was a feeler that ended up going through. The guy was very straight forward and held onto the car for a month for me after I decided to buy it. I considered the asking price fair and didn't bother negotiating. I'm much more happy with this sale than my last one, despite the SMG. At least that problem can be fixed.


Going from manual to SMG is not a good transition. The SMG, by itself is alright. Some would argue it's amazing, which for it's time, is. I want to be more engaged with my car and I do not like the lack of control I have over the transmission. As soon as I test drove it, I started ordering parts for the manual swap which I will definitely be doing still.
