I had a 540i that I sold and I want something with speed from 0-60 in a few seconds but to still be a car with alot of style to it also. So I was leaning towards a 95-98 M3? I was just cerious to see what elce you would buy with 14k?

14K.It will be very hard to find an M3 in good shape, meanning: service records, no mods, low miles. But it's not impossible, just keep looking, it might take you a while.

I guess you can get a M3 sedan (97-99) for 14-17k.I just recently bought a 99 E36 convertible for 20k and saw a couple of sedans for 17k but the miles will be high

I just picked up a very clean 1-owner white '98 M3 sedan for $12,500. It has 125k on the odometer but that doesn't bother me at all. No mods. The previous owner was in his mid 60's and took the car to the dealer for everything. It's a great car and exactly what I was looking for. There are deals out there is you are willing to wait for them and spend time looking. I actually got really lucky, this was only the second car I had looked at and I hadn't been looking for more than a few days when I spotted it on autotrader. I did have to drive 260 miles to get it but it was well worth it.

I bought my 95 Us spec m3 for 15k 3 years ago with 35,000 original miles on it in Canada that was mint. There are deals out there you just have to be willing to travel, and be willing to wait.

I picked up my 95 ///m3 for $10,000 with 109,000 flawles body with only a worn spot on the steering wheel....highway miles is my guess due to location of spot....it was the old guy died and the widow didn't want the car story....she couldn't even drive it...bless her heart. she was the nicest old lady. my girlfriend and I made some cookies and took them to her when I paid for the car. lol

I just bought a 97 M3 with 125,000 miles on it within your price range. It was fully built with H&R and Bilstein coilovers, ECIS intake, Active Autowerke front and rear strut bars, Turner motorsport flywheel, AA short shifter, Shark Injector, etc.

It may not be what everyone wants, but it was what I wanted.

Long story short, you can get what your looking for within that range.
