Default How much to pay for M3 ZCP Coupe?

Hello,
I'm hoping you can help me determine an appropriate range for a 6-speed Coupe with Competition Package.
What would be a value of 2005 model with less than 50,000 miles? What would be the difference for 2006 model?

Let's say it's well-maintained with services done on time, inspection I and II etc.

So, if you were buying one today, how much would you pay?

Thank you.

That seems about right for a 2005 ZCP, maybe $2000-$3000 more for a 2006 (especially if it has some warranty or maintenance plan left).

also depends on a few options and if they are deal breakers to you, navi, moonroof, heated seats.

Thanks guys.

I'm not fussy about options. Navi, sunroof etc. are bonus, but not something I'm looking for or willing to pay extra for it if the car has it.

The only thing I'd be looking for specifically is one of 4 exterior colors and definitely no gray interior. Other than that, as long as it's a stock 6-speed ZCP, it works.

Extended warranty and maintenance are no value-adds either since I'll be importing the car to Canada.

Thanks again for the responses. Keep them coming.

Just for reference I bought my 05 M3 ZCP SMG Alpine White/Napa, Navi, Premium Package, CPO till Sept 2011 with 41K miles for $32K last fall. I could of bought another M3 cheaper, but I wanted this one. I'd say anywhere around $28-30K is about right depending on color, condition, mileage, etc.

I bought mine Aug of 09 (05 ZCP 39K with a couple months left on the warranty) It had every option except rear parking sensors and rear sun shade. Paid $29,800. Could have found one (SMG or non ZCP) a grand or so cheaper, but it was exactly what i wanted. At the time they were pulling 29k to 34K so i feel that i got a pretty good deal

Dont cheap out, if you can. Wait for exactly what you want, it will pay off in the end. Took me 6 months.

wow - seems the asking prices of almost all the ZCP cars I have seen in CA tend to be over $30K. Are the sellers just hoping?

I am in the market, although still debating between M3, C6 and 996 which is another story... But for an M3 I was thinking getting the ZCP package was the way to go. Although I really don't think they are worth over $30K unless the miles are below 35K or so.

Also seems manual ZCP cars are extremely hard to come by. Is it worth waiting for one, and how much do you think is a reasonable premium to pay over a non ZCP car? I read somewhere that all M3's got the suspension tuning from the ZCP in 05-06, but I like the wheels and the steering wheel and the closer ratio steering rack seems like a good thing. Any other major differences?
