Completely flawless in and out with no modifications. Located in DC area. No nav, comfort access or cold weather package so car is sorta bare bones with exception to the options just named. Not terribly anxious to sell it but will to relieve the car payment. Looking for advice on selling to Carmax for $36,500.
Post that car on the m3post forum... you may sell there within a month at your original selling price. It is not a bad price for less than 35,000 miles.

I don't know much about the M3 post forum but I don't think I'll get more than $37k consdering it's an 08 and semi bare bones on options. I think I should just take it rather than wait sinice I never drive the M3 but once a week to work and back, sadly. It just doesn't get much drive.

Link to car? Carmax is just going to turn around and push it back out there for $39k (or more) anyway, can you just wait another month or so for a buyer? Also, cross posting the cars.com ad on Craigslist seems to get decent results these days too.

Be forewarned...if you decide not to sell the car to Carmax within the next 7 days and later you decide to try again with them, they'll suddenly reappraise it at a lower value. The excuse: "market conditions".

Otherwise, selling a car to them is really easy and hassle-free.

That is a gorgeous car and what I will replace my E46 with someday.

I would add if you are the original or second owner etc as well as what type of new tires are on it.....also if/what type of tint is on it and embed the letters "DCT" in the description and "Automanual" as the transmission in case someone is searching for it. Also a pic of the original sticker is nice too.

I like this guys format for the selling points:

GLWS. I am sure there is a DC/VA/MD fester looking for one, they just have to find it.

Thanks! I really appreciate the comments. Sadly, I just don't drive it enough and since I've had five Bimmer's I'm looking for a more practical SUV I can drive full time....for now anyway...

That must be +50% retained value of purchase price after 5 years, pretty darn good if you ask me.
