Hope yours is still treating you well!


Couldn't agree more. NO ON has maintenance or paperwork on the big ticket items (vanos, rod bearings, subframe, SMG), but wants 15k for their 180,000 mile car. C'mon.

Yep, lazy sellers, very frustrating

In the end, there is almost no way around spending $25-30k to get what everyone wants.

I'm perpetually married and dating simultaneously - cars, that is

I like that color combo, actually - it's crisp and clean but the interior is rough for that mileage. At 52k a well kept grey interior should have virtually zero discoloration and that car's drivers seat looks pretty bad. And I'm sure it looks twice as bad in person. Car looks good in general, though.

I've owned a mint grey - it's possible to keep them looking new.

I had a Boston Green/Dove Gray e36 M3 and I likes the color combo, but it's just not as desirable as others.

After a few years the driver seat did get some wear, even though I was meticulous about keeping it clean and conditioned. However, I had it detailed at one point and it did look like new after that. The detailer told me he used dove bar soap to clean the leather. Couldn't argue with the results.

I had a BG/dove 36M as well - car was hideous in certain lights and stunning in others

The 36 dove is off-white, much lighter than the 46 grey but yeah, care is everything. But once the surface of the leather gets rough there's little you can do to make grey look good again. If this car had a black or Cinn interior it'd be going for 30+ I bet, echoing your undesirable comment. Plus I don't think CB is that popular.

Agreed.

If you can live with this color, then it's a good deal......for now. Bidding is not over.

Actually, car looks very clean, interior as well save for drivers bolsters. If these were recovered the interior would be truly near mint.

Yep, I could rock that combo. It's different but attractive. Seems like a really great deal at 25k if you like the combo, agreed. The grey balances well with the Zcp wheels and I'd almost say that CB looks better with grey than black - the lighter interior seems to make the color pop more where black interior makes the CB look navy.

Ya I see it in our for sale forum too. A good owner puts one up for sale here and there though, you'll get a good one!

Mine's been rock solid, luckily thanks. Good luck! I miss the steel grey!
