Mein Auto: BMW M3
Brand New 1999 M3 Convertible, what's it worth?

I am interested in selling my 1999 M3 Convertible, Automatic. I call it brand new because it only has 2,610 miles on it. Still smells showroom new. Garaged all its life at our home in Connecticut. Never seen rain snow or dirt, barely seen sun. It is as vibrant as when we bought it 14 years ago. My wife takes it out once a year, but only if the roads have been swept and the weather is good. If anyone could tell me what a reasonable price to sell it for, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Burt.

Hi Burt, I think the short answer is that this is so unusual that a value is hard to figure in the conventional ways...

You might get some insight at http://enthusiastauto.com which is an outfit in Ohio that specializes in buying and selling unusual/rare/really nice M cars.

You could call Wayne Carini. He is the guy on Chasing classic cars and is based is Connecticut. The thing that strikes me as a BMW lover is why buy a car like that and then not drive it?

Yeah, those guys will give you $25k for it, and then put it up for sale for $40k.
