For a variety of reasons, I am thinking about parting ways with my recently acquired M3 (not the least of which was a test drive of a Cayman R). I say 'thinking' -- and not 'am' -- as I truly love this car, but for the right price, to the right home, I may let her go.
The M3 has approximately 1600 miles on the clock. I have closely followed BMW's break-in service protocol (low, varied RPM and partial-throttle through 1200 miles) and have taken extra care to prepare the car for many years of service (interior/exterior are absolutely flawless, if not better than Factory new, more on that below
). The M3 lives in the garage of my second home and is driven only when weather permits on the weekends.

Other things to consider, on interior wear, I'm 5'7" ~155lbs, bolsters/seat backs reflect that w/very little wear.
The professional paint-prep, top-of-the-line PPF, Opti-Coat 2.0 and 22xple application by Unique Car Care [named one of the country's best by AutoWeek], M Performance accessories and Wheel and Tire Warranty cost me
$7k... but I'm realistic on these items and the current value of a newly-depreciated M3... market offers will be considered, low-ballers need-not-apply.
UDPATE 1: As promised, pictures below - I had hoped to detail prior to shooting, but given the weather, I rolled her out when we had a few moments of sun and didn't have a chance to perform any extra-prep. Also - I'm no photographer. The pictures just don't do the M3 justice.
UPDATE 2: I failed to mention that the front license plate bracket is NOT bolted to the car. It is held on to the bumper (via the PPF) with 3M tape. That is to say, it's completely removable
(the Xpel Shield has a self-healing clear-coat that would withstand removal).
UPDATE 3: Lots of good feedback on pricing. Consensus seems to be that a clean, low mileage '13 should be priced in the very low 60s. It'll be the interest in/cumulative, additive value of the M Performance Exhaust, Wheel and Tire Warranty, Professional Paint Prep, Xpel PPF (w/ self-healing clear coat) and extras (GTS bits Comp Spoiler, OEM M5 Knob/boot) that will likely decide the buyer. Thanks all for the PMs.
Thanks for looking!
