I was at a dealer in Washington state and they had the E92 M3 2008-2010 wholesale prices started at $35k. This is no secret. I would not spend a dime over $45k for ANY E92 M3. Just not worth it, knowing what I know now and what you can get them for.
How would a member of the general public have access to these wholesale prices?
I do agree with what you say in regards to the next gen M3, but that is still at least a year away. I've found an 09 version of the same car (minus ZCP) for ~$50,000 - that might be a better option.
