Just an FYI, you have a very desireable M3, don't let it go for cheap, wait for the right person and you will fetch a very pretty penny. A near stock red on black 99 M3 coupe 5 speed with 42K miles is about as good as it gets.

what's the condition like? interior pics? service history? accident history?
if all of them are good i'd say anywhere from 15 to 18,000 ish.

better yet, i'd recommend you keep it.. and buy another daily driver.
I really think the E36 M3's will start going up in value given that it's in good condition.

Actually I agree, have the M detailed, and put it away for storage. A few years from now when the economy is back on it's feet, your M3 will be worth a great deal of money because low mileage E36 M3's are pretty hard to find these days.

Unless your strapped for cash, I really think you should consider storing it for a few years.

Yeah...umm...no. Will it be worth more than an average E36 M3? Yes. Will it is be worth more than it is now? No.

The e36 M3 in US form is a mass produced factory modded 328i. It will not gain in value. This is not an e30 M3.

5 years ago it was a 15-18K car. I bought my 99 M3 at a dealer for 18,999 with 52,000 miles and it was White on Mulberry.

I would say if you put it on the market down it would be a 10-12K car. There are sooooo many 100,000mi E36 m3's out there that people are not going to pay 15K or more for an e36 M3. The really big thing in reality is that a car that is NOT driven will start to leak. At 42,000mi you are due for a host of maintenance over the first year of ownership.

Good Luck with your sale and good looking car but it won't fetch that much. The problem right now is that the age of the car prevents a standard auto loan and a personal loan is going to be 24 months. Or cash. Those are you options for selling. When someone can buy a 120,000mi 95 M3 for 6K no one is going to pay that much more for a low mile 99 M3.

Sorry to be a party pooper.

Cars like that are selling from mid to high teens. Especially with the low mileage. I just paid $10500 for mine with 95k on it. If you look on the autotrader they are up there.

From the little pics and description it sounds like a sweet car. I agree with the general sentiment that it is no collector car though. Price it where you are comfortabel letting it go and wait for the right buyer.

Looks like you two are not as expert as you thought! :rofl: 10-12K? Ok...:tsk:

Congrats on the sale buddy, although I am 100% confident in saying that if you held it until around June of next year, it would be worth more. You simply cannot find 50K miles and less E36 M3's anymore, not to mention red 99 coupes!

But as long as your happy. :thumbup:

a fair price?

well if i was in the states in consider trading you for my left nut?

in AUS all e36 m3's (even sedans) are going for atleast 25.
for that (if i had the money), id probably pay about 30 - 32.
someone else do the conversion, i cant be assed. :thumbup:

25,000 aud = 16,000usd

30,000 aud = 20,000usd

I would sell the aftermarket parts and put it back to stock before I sell it...

Nicely done. There will always be buyers willing to pay fair value or a premium for desireable low miles E36s. I'm lucky enough to be able to afford a 50k car if I wanted one. I own a 99 M3 vert because it's the best car I've ever driven. Mine is as tight as new and it has 140k miles. So last week I decided it was time to start thinking about looking for a car with lower miles. Thought I might treat myself to a brand new Shelby Cobra GT 500 for 45k which is 3k below sticker. So I drove one. The raw horsepower is exhillerating but I was shocked to figure out that at least for me an E36 M3 is a better all around performance car than a Shelby GT 500. So I've figured out the E36 is the perfect car for me. I've driven the new M3s and they're great but I prefer the design of the older body style. So as I went through this exercise I realized what I really wanted was another E36 M3 vert but with lower miles. Since I was prepared to pay 45k for a Shelby, suddenly the thought of "overpaying", say $18,000 for a low miles E36 M3 in exceptional condition, was quite painless.

Two days after my Shelby test drive, when I made my mind up the Shelby wasn't for me, I found a low miles 98 M3 Vert in exceptional condition, gladly paid the seller's asking price and felt like I got the better of the deal because I got exactly the car I was after.

As others have said if you have a really nice low miles example of an E36 M car there will always be an enthusiast out there willing to "overpay" to get the car he or she wants.

Congrats on a win, win sale.
