Dealer started out asking over sticker for the car. KBB.com indicates these cars sell for sticker on average. I'm not a good negotiator, so I'm happy with the token $500 off sticker.
This was the case when there were rumors of the 330 coming out in 2000. Why did they sell so many 99 M's?Moderato said:Guys, I love the E46 M3 but 60K for one at this point...does that make sense? Rumors of a 300hp twin turbo E90 coupe and the E90 M3 not that far a away. In a couple years when this happens just imagine how much a used 05 M3 with low miles will be.
Well the thing is that I really want an E46 M3. But the problem is I have an 04 330i 6MT. So if I buy an M3, I can trade in the 04 get an 05 M3 and buy it no problem, it will cost me no more then giving up my 04 and an extra 25K-30k. But if I wait 2 - 3 years I'll probably be able to get a used 04 or 05 M3 with relatively low miles for 35K and I get to keep the 330i as well. Or I just wait for the E90 coupe or E90 M3 and trade in my 330i then, because I don't think it will depreciate that much more over next 2 years then it already has, so for that reason it really doesn't make sense to trade in the 330i at this point. It's hard to do, but if I have some patience I can get a really nice used E46 M3 in a couple years and save a lot of money. Everytime I see one of these ZCP threads though, it gets me thinking again and I want to be selfish and just get the M3 now. :dunno:TD330ci said:This was the case when there were rumors of the 330 coming out in 2000.

I still enjoy the S**T out of my 99 and it still has a decent resale value SIX years later.
Its all relative. Get what you want and don't wait for maybe another year at least.
