Sucks to hear you're having a hard time finding a car. When I was following prices of used E9x M3s earlier this year, I saw them in the low to mid 40's all day long.

I rarely see them for low 40's, unless they are '08's with 50k miles.

I would laugh at salesmen and what she said to you. I'd say back to her, I guess you should know the feeling since you couldn't dream of owning a car in that pricerange.

if you are seeing a used 11 with 2k miles for $62k you should really think about it...there still are some good deals out there if you are patient. i don't know what you are looking for, but here is a nice looking e90 advertised in the bay area for example--09, 12k miles, 6 speed e90 with the right options plus bbs wheels:

i like the car in the link above... and while blue is not a top color, if it were a coupe i would say that is a great buy.

Im thinking private party is gonna be my best bet... Im kind of in limbo with the new model coming out... if i buy now, in a year there will be a ton of used 09 and 10s because people will trade up to get the new one...

when i find the right car, and my guess is it will be out of state, i'm gonna call on you guys to inspect the car for me... lol... then ill fly out and drive her back to her new home...

just gotta wait for the right car to pop up.

A check of CPO M3s at BMW NA shows 31 cars between $40k and $50k with five under $45k (all 2008s and I did not check the options lists). Not sure this link will work, but you can do your own search.

I trade in my 2008 E90 IB/blk PP 6MT with 233xxx miles and is listed for $44995.

I never tracked the car it has 2 line scrapes on front fender bottom part which can be corrected no problems and evo V12's the rest is in very good condition I have leather condition the seats all the time, the pictures show some discoloration on the front seat but I think a shadow or something because the leather is perfect, I turned in with the BMW performance rear spoiler faded paint, BMW performance pedals has brand new belts, the exhaust is virtually new was taken at off a week after delivery and put back for trade same goes for the springs. All service and installations of anything was done at the dealer, I work there.

is it me or are they our of their F-ing minds??? they had another one for around 67,500, same options but 17k miles...

i've looked online, seen some of the deals people have gotten around here and am horribly discouraged at the prices im seeing in the OC area...

i want to be around $45,000... feels like private party may be my only option?

otherwise might as well just go new and eat the depreciation on the way home...
more than what you are thinking but willing to negotiate
