Default Very nice Estoril/Dove on BAT

The value of stock unmolested e36 M3's are on the rise. This one's already at $15K with 3 days left:

Anyone's car on here?

I'm betting 20k+ for this one. Hopefully the new owner gets exactly what they are expecting when it shows up at their door. Sometimes I forget how beautiful dove is when fresh.

I'm going to guess $18k for the hell of it.

Either way, it's always nice to see clean examples like this pop up. Hope it goes to a good home.

That Dove isn't that fresh, weirdly. The mileage is low, but the interior wear is pretty rough. My car has 118K on it and the vaders/armrest still look way newer. Glad to see that they're starting to go for more.

Here are photos of my interior when it had 75K miles on it, for comparison.







I wonder if the current owner just never conditions/cleans the interior. I bet they could clean it up a bit better than in those photos...

Here's another very clean M3/4/5 that just sold for $15K

Seller of this car is currently the high bidder on the Estoril Car posted above.

Hopefully this one goes for a bit less than $15k. Look at the interior. And No Reserve.

This was a local car to WA and the seller at the time asked for $7,000. The interior was filthy, as was the paints condition, and it was obvious, to me at least, that the car needed an overhaul mechanically. At $7k it was iffy, anything more than that price and I'd walk away.


As far as my data shows, E36 prices are starting to drop/hold, as the market is about dried up for the time being.

That interior is so nice! Mine doesn't look anywhere like that unfortunately. Well done keeping the car so clean.

All I have to say is I'm just glad I bought mine when I did.

Not THAT nice of an example. It has potential to be brought back, but there's a difference between a car that wasn't used much and one that was really well cared for.
