DCT? Either way...seems like a great deal; better than I did. Still under warranty too. Here's what I just purchased.

When purchased: July 2012
Year and Model: 2008 E92 Silverstone/Silver
Miles: 22,000
Options: All except DCT, extended leather, sun shade (could have done w/o the moon roof)
Transmission: Manual
Two previous owners
Out of warranty - BMW dealer inspection found nothing
Two keys, records, clean car fax
Michellin PS2s: rears have 7/32; fronts have 9/32
Paid $43,500 +TTL (originally asking $45,000)
Purchased from Pacific Porsche in SoCal - the M3 was traded on a new 911
Very small dent in roof - the only flaw I can find

My target was a loaded, MT E92 M3 with less than 30K miles for around $40K or a CPO for $42K. I paid more than I wanted, but this car checked all the boxes except the CF roof.

I was shopping for two weeks and checked dealers, autotrader, ebay and the forums every day. Purchased the car remotely and had it shipped to NoCal. I believe I got a decent deal.
