2008 M3 with 3kmiles

Hi folks,
I had a 335i and my lease is done. I m stepping up an 08 e93, manual tranny, black with gray interior, prem sound, tech pkg, prm pkg, 19' prm wheels with only 3k miles for 54900. Maintenance expires within 2 yrs. What you guys think? Good deal?

Congrats... Sounds like a great deal. Before I got mine, I found an E92 fully loaded for 55k with 2000 miles on it.

Great deal for an E93, but do a thorough check for damage. It honestly sounds low for an asking price which would make me worry a little.

Auction prices for MT E92 M3s seem to be around ~$43k at the moment. A few private sales that I am aware of for loaded 08 cars are in the high $40s. A low miles E92 M3 private party deal would most likely be right around $50k. Maybe that helps you price the E93 deal...Is the price you posted a dealer quote or a private party asking price?

Sounds almost too good to be true. Check the cars history. Otherwise, pull the trigger and enjoy !!!!!!!!!

I think you could get it around 50-52k especially based in your area. Was it in on trade? If so you might be able to get even more taken off if the dealership is just trying to make a quick buck on a good car. They might have made money on the trade up so they it doesn't hurt to negotiate for a lower cost of the car.

That's what '08 E93 goes for these days.
But this one has the lowest miles it seems...

OP, where did you find it?

You wont regret getting it, and honestly the low miles mean it spent most of its time as a garage queen and was probably never tracked...check when the 1200miles service was done, perhaps it needs fresh oil if it was done a while ago and voila you have a gem of a car.

I mean in 2 years you are saving close to $25K from new, so bear that in mind

Agreed - great sounding deal!

Wait, so if a BMW is less than 4 years old, has less than 50k miles on it, and is sold used, it has no warranty??

No, it has the factory warranty, just not the extended "certified" warranty.

Good, for a second I was scared shitless..So pretty much, if someone bought the extra two year service package, that doesnt transfer to new owner. However, can you purchase the extra two years if you are within the 4 year warranty?

+1, the certification cost of an E93 M3 is not cheap, but they should be willing to do it as long as you absorb the cost.

Personally I'd be worried the car can't be certified b/c of prior accident damage or some other issue. If I were the OP I would make the sale contingent on a 3rd party inspection either at another BMW dealer, local indy shop, or someone who knows these cars cold.

If the car is straight the price is right for sure, GL OP.
