Opinion please on a few M3's I am considering
Hello, I have a list below of a few M3's I am considering, I'm in NY. Transmission is of no concern to me. I do however prefer the comp package and IB. Only one M3 comes with a warranty and ironically it's the closest to me. All have a clean autocheck and carfax. I will do a PPI on the car before I buy it. I'm a nitpicker(personally and by occupation!) but I wont nitpick as much if the price is right.
-$23k, 06 Imola on black, SMG, PDC, heated seats, premium package. 70k pretty extensive maintenance history, 2 owners. Dealership will provide 30 day limited warranty, northern car(LI and NJ), drove this one and drove pretty well. 2 things I didn't like, dynamat in the trunk, tires match only in pairs, paintwork pass fender and door, but looks like the parts were not removed(maybe a light dent or scratch). No subframe recall or vanos work completed. Inspection 2 in '09, has a recall for programming. Car's been for sale for a longgggg time over 14 months at least, multiple price drops. I'm not sure why it's still there, they do sell exotics.
-$26k, 06 Imola on Imola 58k, manual, was cpo til 2012. Premium, heated seats, no maintenance or service records on carfax or at BMW after 09, owner states he's a mechanic. Have to drive to VA to check this one out. No warranty. no subframe work or vanos work completed. No records of inspection 2, has a recall for programming.
-$26k, 06 ib/dove, 72k looks to be a stripper model with smg, navi, ZCP, PDC(which I read is standard on SMG's?). No power seats or memory, pretty sure it doesn't have a premium package, no xenon(sucks), normal maintenance per BMW and carfax. Owner says he did a ton of maintenance and used to work for BMW for 16 years. Blank info on autocheck and carfax from 06-09. BTW, it's amazing how dependent I am on Carfax and Autocheck, such a shame. No warranty either and is in VA. no subframe work or vanos work completed.
-$30K, 06, ib/black, 66k, SMG, ZCP, PDC, navi, lumbar, premium, except cold weather, rear sunshade, headlight washers(none of the cars I listed have this). Normal maintenance. No warranty, not even a state mandated one. This is only 100 miles from me in PA. no subframe work or vanos work completed and owner states subframe is fine.
-$34k, 06, Ib/dove, 50k from Hawaii off a military guy. Zcp, premium, except cold weather, rear sunshade, headlight washers(none of the cars I listed have this). I test drove this, and it drove real nice. Price is up there though, highly doubt he is negotiable that much.
I can't even read the M3 market now, it's really all over the place. If you can let me know which has the best value that would really help me as I really can't figure out the proper pricing especially on the comp package ones. Any HELPUL insight is greatly appreciated.
