Default Pricing my E36 M3 sedan? 98

Hey there; I recently obtained a 1998 E36 M3 Sedan and as soon as I bought it another car popped up in the auctions that I'm trying to purchase.
So I need a little help on what these cars typically go for.

I don't have direct photos right this second; BUt a little info.

130k Miles
3 owner (I'm third)
AUTO (yuck)
Black
Sedan
Dove grey interior
I have all oil change records from 2005-2018
Paperwork at 100k miles cooling lines etc have been replaced and maintained.
Paint looks pristine.
2 door dings if that (I have to try and find them; nothing else wrong exterior-wise)
All trim is there;
Interior 7/10 - Typical Headliner sag, passenger M seat has a 1 1/2" tear in the leather.
Typical CEL for Brake Light Circuit; comes and goes.
Engine bay looks brand new; previous owner was 50 year old man who babied it.
No rust or paint flaws.
Sunroof works!
M-Contour Wheels

I got the car for a good price; as I purchased it within an hour of him posting it up.

Agreed. CEL does not come for brake circuit, gotta be something else.

Found out it was the coolant sensor; Just saw it flash when I turned on the car. Gonna replace it.

Coolant sensor will also not throw a CEL
You will not know what its for until you scan it. Your OBC messages are unrelated to CEL.

My 1997 M3 auto sedan was $5,200 @ 170k miles, paint very good, no mechenical records, but very well maintained, all stock. I think it was a pretty good deal.

The $6-8k price range seems reasonable.I think the price can swing so much on the condition and how bad you want certain color scheme.

For instance, I would price Estoril @ $2k higher, manual at @ $1k higher, overall immaculate inside @ $1k higher.

On the downside, issues with subframe around RTAB or rear subframe mounts would pull the price way down.

my 2 cents

Should be the photos

EDIT: Mulberry or something was the seat colour actually.

CODE WAS P0340 and I got a replacement cam position sensor from FCP.
