Fox red extended leather, Navi, carbon roof etc. Fully loaded, but with the 18" wheels.
1 owner, documented maintenance at Bmw.
9.5 out of 10 condition. Good looks amazing for almost being 8 years old. Owned by an older gentleman.

Paid 36k plus TT&L.

Might have overpaid a little bit, but might be worth it for our babied this car was
I think you paid a fair price. A tad bit less than what I paid for the same car with 21k miles, black interior, and ZCP package. Mine was a 9.5/10 as well.

I was almost scared enough by all the posts to have mine swapped out at 21k but I've decided to wait til 40-50k and press my luck.

I said the same thing when I purchased my car at 20k. Now at 38k.
I think if they don't take a dump pre 20k miles it will probably last for a bit. I probably will change them around 60k ish.

Its a gamble but I guess worst case is you get a 4.4L out of it

Looking at one tomorrow --- price feels high to me given its an '08 but I'm a sucker for the Interlagos Blue.

2008 E92 M3
Interlagos Blue w Silver Novillo leather & CF trim
21k miles
6-spd manual
M-Drive w EDC
Prem Pkg
Tech Pkg
Comfort Pkg
PDC
Sunroof
Bluetooth/Aux/USB
New Pilot Super Sports
2 owner; Stock with no visible evidence of mods

The owner is asking $34k. Thoughts?

It's the color you want. It's the mileage that we all want. Three pedals, 2 owner, Bluetooth, stock, $1,000 in tires... I would say he knows what his car is worth and you are getting a gem. Welcome to the club and you have earned your first "appreciate". Throw up some pictures after you buy it and I guarantee you will get many more.

True and I can always take solace in the fact that it will be cheaper than buying from EAG.

It's always difficult to place value on a low mileage but oldest model year car. If it's been garaged 24/7 since new and presents as nearly new, to one group of buyers it might be worth something near that price. I would say that having a sunroof is a negative for the market for such a car.

Thanks. I'm still amazed by this thing. My only regret is I didn't take an oil sample after the first change to send to Blackstone for analysis. I'll do it next time but I wouldn't mind the peace of mind.

Thinking to sell my 2008 coupe. It's immaculate with 31K miles.

- Alpine white with extended black leather
- Manual
- Carbon roof
- Fully loaded (every option for the year)
- ZCP wheels
- All service records, new rear tires, fresh plugs and oil)

What's it worth?

I appreciate the feedback

Miles: 89,100
Options: Nav, heated seats, bluetooth, rear sunshade, comfort access, PDC, light package, premium sound, EDC, adaptive headlights
Trans: DCT, carbon fiber roof

Has had rod bearings completed 1k miles ago, and one throttle actuator replaced. Clean title, good tires, good body/interior. Mostly stock aside from some small odds and ends.

What is this thing worth?

Thanks! Good to know.

I'll probably bring it back to 100% stock, but right now it has Agency power exhaust, KW sleeve overs, CF diffuser, & CF Mirrors caps (cheapo ones).

And where are you guys recommending to source these cars? I'm primarily using this forum, craigslist, ebay, cars.com, and autotrader. Are there any other classifieds that are reccomended?
