sorry to say, but thats way way to many miles to be commuting in that car, your resale value just took a shit because of the mileage.

things you have going for you are AW and Manual. but i dont think youll get more than 45 for it

42 is a little cheap, just give it a good detail, check over the front bumper for blemishes and disclose them, you should be able to hit the 45k mark, if you know someone at a dealership that will get you the CPO warranty, you should be able to pull 47 maybe 48 for a 09'

if you were in cali my uncle could do it for about 2k so taking the "42" to maybe 47.5

a 5k return on 2k not bad, its all about what people are willing to spend.

I didnt mean to be harsh its just reality with the cars right now, my uncle who is the general sales manager of a dealership out here says they are slowing down their M3 orders because the market is going down for them. Granted most people on this site arent in the same boat at 80% of america.

GLWS man,

$42k plus the sales tax savings gets you into the $45k range. I honestly don't think you will fetch $45k on this site for an M3 that is about to be out of warranty. I think $42k is a pretty good offer - maybe beat them up for another $1k.

I wish I could sell my car for $45k when I hit the 50k miles mark hah. My M3 is a commuter too. $46-47k sounds about right. I think people usually compare your price with autotrader's prices.

check out this thread...
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366319

take the dealer offer price of $42K; thats generous IMO considering the miles. a private party will be hesitant to buy it without a warranty. hence your only choice is selling it to dealer

If you can get 42k from a dealer, take it. I think that car is realistically worth 36-38k.
