Hi, Just want to clarify your post. You are looking for a used e46 M3, model years 2001-2006, correct? And you are looking to spend at most 15k. This is what you are asking for, correct?

No, don't worry. You should be all right, but in case put your 'flame-suit' on

Good luck with your car search.

Is there a reason you asked? Got anything in mind?

I've seen quite a few around the $16-19k range that are 2001 or 2002, so i don't think it would be impossible to find one that's $15k with no restriction on mileage.. right?

Well, you're jersey and I'm jersey, so here are my thoughts:

I've been looking for a 2nd car to go tracking with, and the e46 has been on my radar. I don't think you're find a good car for anywhere near 15k, even on the 2001 (first year models). I think you have to wait a bit more for prices to fall on the e46 to get one near the 15k range.

You are in the range on e36 M3s and there are a bunch to choose from way under the 15k range. So if you are set on a e46, wait. If you want a car now, look at the e36 models.

yeah i def agree with you.. i've found two or three that are in the $17-19k range, but those have ridiculous mileage on them (like 180k+ miles)..

i cannot wait, and the e36 M3 looks butt ugly to me, so instead i'm going for a 3-series vert or coupe 2003-2005 range under $13k, with under 75k miles, FULLY LOADED

i've already found a half-dozen in my area that satisfy these req. so i guess the M3 will have to wait until i get a real job

Not a bad idea....go with a coupe if you really want something sporting, the vert will just be more weight. A nicely equiped 330 with the sport package and manual sounds right.

yeah the M3 would've been a sex magnet but a 3-coupe is very nice as well, esp the sports ones as you said.. plus that will save me some $$ i can put into my E92-fund for ten years from now haha

i think i saw that one but it has "major titles issues" and "major damage/accident" so i skipped it.. in my experience major accidents (no matter how good the garage is that fixes the car) irreversibly alter the car for the worse..
