found 02 M3, good price ?

So I found an immaculate 2002 M3 coupe. Silver. Has every option except navigation. 6 speed. Only things added are tint and an ipod adapter. Has 18500 miles on it. He's asking 38900, but says he is open to negotiation ? What should I offer ?

That's about what I paid for my '02 fifteen months ago. All options except NAV as well, immaculate, had 29K miles but has CPO.

Try $33K.

There is NO recall. There were two SERVICE ACTIONS, that may apply. ONe applied to ALL 2002 cars, the other only a few of them (the limited one came first).

Any dealer should be able to get the service history from the VIN and tell you if the service actions have been done (and there are other more minor ones also).

And with ANY used car purchase, have it checked over by a KNOWLEGEABLE mechanic, not associated with the seller.

Sorry to be negative but I highly doubt someone will go from $38900 to $33k. A couple grand negotiation is a good deal with on an M3. For you to be able to go from $38900 to $33000 is almost a $6grand difference...good luck with that.

I'd offer $33,000


EDIT: oops, jrp beat me to that number, but that's what I'd do too. I wouldn't pay more than $34,000 for an '02
