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.

Thumbs up

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

Mein Auto: '98 M3/4,325i,900SE Turbo
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.

Mein Auto: 97 BMW M3
get an M#

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.
When you set the bar, you feel obliged to raise it now and then.
