today while at wegmans (supermarket) two people comentted nice car. one getting out of a b5 s4 slammed. and one out of a e30.

I told the guy with the audi you too.... not the one with the e30 though.
3.5 is a pretty good number IMO, our cars have gotten cheap

I talked to Levent on R3V (he's hella rich, knows Euro's inside and out), and he said that they're actually more expensive to maintain than an e30 M3. 90% of the parts are NLA, the fuel injection system is terrible, heavy curb weight etc.. He said you better be ready to hand your credit card over and dont ask questions, just pay it

"apparrantly its meant for more sporty driving but wrong generation I guess."

Really... This seems like a scam. Who drives an M3, but doesn't understand that it is for "sporty driving"??

Is this a good deal?

Hey guys and gals. I am currently talking to these folks about their car...

http://redding.craigslist.org/cto/2561892656.html

I wanted to know what you guys think about the price. I went and test drove the car and its just like the ad says. Great condition, low-miles, what do you all think? If it pans out, this will be my first BMW.

Cheers.

Hey, kudo's for searching and welcome to the 'Fest. To be fair though, the price point isn't one many of us can comment on accurately. You'd have better luck in the E46 section of the 'Fest.

See you around.

Ed.

Yea what ED said..

I'm not really sure how it is in the E46 market either...

Looks clean... but the e46 section should definately help you out!!!

Good luck on your search!!!
