Just read Roundel...

A couple of interesting things:

1. Damn, my car's value is plummeting. This is the first car I've owned (rather than leased) in about ten years, and I have to say being a car owner is kind of like being a Nortel shareholder: You cringe every time you open the paper. :mad:

2. The salesman I bought my first BMW from is selling his 1991 M3 (I recognize the name and phone no.) Looks nice, and I still really want one of those, but he wants 15K for it, and that's hard to justify for an eleven year old car (especially in light of 1, above).:cry:

3. ALEX325, is that your letter? :confused:

There was a really sweet E36 M3/4 in last months Roundel. I was going to look at it, but I called my insurance company and it was going to raise my premium too much. :bawling:

Grrr... We all told you at the time to shop around on insurance. My rates went DOWN going from a 330i SP SEDAN to the M3/4. You have a 330Ci COUPE. If mine went down, yours should surely go down. Our demographics are VERY similar. (Hell, I'm, what, 10 DAYS older than you? Both of us are married with one child. This should be comparable.)

Don't give up!!! ;)
I know, I know, but the guy really wanted too much for the car anyways ($33,500). At that price he isn't losing to much money on a car that will be 5 years old in 8 months (from purchase date). I never went to look at it. Probably gone by now and to be honest it's the only car I've had interest in giving up my 330Ci for. There's not to much out there that drives me crazy other than a CooperS and that's a whole different breed of a car.

A stock E30 M3 is very rare. Most have been altered for track use, or just plain abused but unknowing owners who put Sears mufflers on them and cheap tires.

If you find a clean, stock car with OEM parts, it could warrant $15,000. A good condition car is about $10-13,000 here, while a beater is about $7,500. For comparision, the same year clean E30 325i is about $5,000.

I am one of those who feels the E30 M3 is one of the last true streetable racecars that BMW made.... they are a blast to drive!
Are you missing your E46 330i yet? I still haven't sealed the deal on mine.
