It's a manual. Who has Karl's number? I want him to go take a look at this toute suite. His dealer is telling him he needs shocks and RTABs for 2k bucks that's why he is selling.

Helllllllllllpppppppppppppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!1

I thought so too...but he said it was a manual. Then again, he's cautioning me about how expensive BMWs are, so I think he might be a potential neophyte (and it might be an auto after all). Hell, for that price, I'd take it, auto or manual, and have a boys weekend this spring to do a swap party!

It's a two owner car...and he's owned it for the last 10 years, so that's saying something. I was so exicited I forgot to ask him about heated seats, VIN, anything.

Clear your cache and try again. It's gone. "Flagged for removal"

If you go directly to CL, it's not there either. Wondering, Dino, if it's pulling it up from your cache. Either that or the dude sold it already. I tried to call him back and got his VM.

EDIT: I wish I loved white or black cars. I would've had an e46M3 already if I could stand black....

Sometimes these cars will get flagged if people think they aren't real. Had it happen to me once.
Was selling a 99 Ranger. Only wanted $500 bucks because it wouldn't start and I didn't want to deal with it. It sat for about 1.5 years in my parents driveway, so who knows what was wrong with it. Anyway, each time I posted it, it got flagged... ended up donating it.

Keep looking Jen!

Why is that so crazy expensive? It's like 50% more than normal. It's not THAT nice.

EAG always sell the nicest BMWs, albeit slightly over priced but at least you can be confident in knowing exactly what you are getting.

It has Lux package, which is undesirable. Find a couple of other M3s on craigy and go to EAG ready to negotiate! Bring cash monies of what you think it's worth and they probably won't turn it away...

I tell you, I have been tempted to call EAG. They have the car I want. http://enthusiastauto.com/qsearch/?i...1#.UIAoBYZsXIU. But it's $2k over kbb dealer, which is high anyways. And it has the dove gray interior, that most peeps don't like (I actually don't mind it) so you'd think it would be more competively priced. But then again, no subframe issues, no rod bearing recall, I'm sure they've dumped some $$ into it. But I like buying from people...but then again, I'm awfully sick at looking at cars.

Wow that car looks perfect. But 28k is hard to swallow. You can get a decent shape Z4MC for those kinds of numbers. Hell, my 6er was less than that, with less miles, 2 years ago!

Find some way to drive them down and make it happen! You have to place some value in your own happiness...


P.S. Dove grey is awesome. Haters gonna hate, etc.
