If you bought a used M3, would you mind sharing how long it was available for before you took it?

How long a car stays at a dealership will depend on the PRICE, condition, mileage, timing and location. I just brought my M3 Sedan 2 weeks ago. I took it off the lot in less than 5 days. I didn't want anyone else taking the car from me because THIS was the one I had been looking for (low mileage, ZCP, DCT, Space Grey, Nav,PDK, EDC, headted seats). With that said, I had been looking for a similar car for over 3 months.

You need to look at each car and the dealer's asking price. There are some dealers asking for more than $63,000 for a low mileage 2011. I brought mine for < $57,000 with 7500 miles. Good Luck!
