Forum member?

Does anyone know if this car belongs to a member?

Car looks very clean. Would like to get some feedback, please.

Great year. Great price for an M. . I would seriously consider it if I were you. I had an 06 3.0, I would had loved an M. Run a car fax on it, if that's a clean car, someone will grab it quickly.

I'm in California so I've been considering the costs to fly to MD so I could check out the car and get a PPI. Then I'd have to ship it back. If this belonged to a member, it could be a huge relief, knowing they are "enthusiasts" like the rest of us

Price is relative to your desire to buy it. Looked it up on NADA and its a ok price. If it is as clean as it looks then it's a good deal IMHO. If it were closer to $20k it would be a great deal. Our cars drop in value over 50k like rocks. My Roadster still holds a retail value of 32K, and trade in value of 28K, with only 40k miles. I doubt a dealer would give me the 28K other than on paper and hit me on the back side if I moved to another BMW.

If I had the coin and momma motivated I would jump on a coup just to have a matched set of coupe and roadster M's in the house. It would give me the excuse I needed to build that 2 door garage in the back yard.

Best of luck.

Lol. I guess I have to put a little bit of a preference filter on my search. I don't mind a 60k car as long as it has maintenance history. 30k-60k for mileage is my range. I'm buying the car so it can be driven and I'll be driving it daily. Work is less than 2 miles away and sometimes I commute to work on my bicycle so not necessarily driven every single day.

Also, living in California HAS to be the problem. M coupes sold within the state cost way more than most places. It has to be that CA inflation.

If you bought a M for a daily driver you would never drive 2 miles. You would leave early and drive 30 miles just to warm it up.

When I take the wife for a Sunday ride we ususally wind up going 75-150 miles just around our area.

Precisely. And I'll wonder why I'm always late for work every time I drive to work.
