2002 M3 should i buy Help

question is i found a guy selling his 2002 M for 15k hes 67 years old!

hes the original owner from mile ONE!!!

it has 87k on it well maintained!

but the part of it thats killing me is the fact that it has almost no features!

it doesnt have heated seats,bolister adjustment, headlight washers, and the seats are half leather half cloth....never heard of that in an M until he said it!

Sounds like you don't like the car. So why even consider buying it? Move on and find another you like better. Unless you are drawn to this one because of the price. Seems awfully low. I think an M3 should be closer to the $20K range. If that's the case, and you can't afford $20K +/-, then you will either wind up with some oddball car like this, or something that's been beat to death.

I believe that is what I read what some people call a " competition M3" ! No options to reduce any draw on the alternator and such to free up every possible bit off power produced by the engine to create faster track times. And the interior being part leather and the main seat area is anthrate material in the pattern of outlined checkers in the Bmw M colors is said to be used to reduce the driver from slipping in the seat!

Alcantara is the material of the seats.

Some people do not need the options, some people do not want the options, and some people can not afford the options. If YOU need/want the options, find another one.

as for that ****ty spoiler, i guess it's the GT-R spoiler, if it was me, i would replace the bonnet with the GT-R one also, i bet it would look and sound just perfect
