No way......the low miles are great but we all know that mods don't bring retail value once they're installed. So I'm not sure if the dealership is selling the mods or the low miles but in either case I would pass..............Phil

I would not buy a modded car unless the mods are all OEM and only cosmetic.

Oh, I don't know. The description does say "This M3 has NO EQUAL!" after all.

That knock-off GTS center console is pretty sweet. Didn't know they existed for 6MT. Also, no LCI tails?!

And yea - silly price.

Same guy is calling this car an E90??

"...BMW's M3 is well represented by the E90 variant."

Never... especially since it's a 2008. I would rather get a stock and make it my own.

as others have said no way. it's an 08 and mods never add value. if the mods are tastefully done and you have alot of free time on your hands and you can estimate a certain resell value for said mods, then maybe the car could come out to a better price for you, but not with this 08. bigger picture: you can just buy a brand new one for that price

When you sell the car to dealer: Oh your car is modded , I will pay less then what the market value is because its not stock.

When the dealer sells the car with huge markup: This car is nicely modded with a lot of expensive parts on it, you cant find another one on the market. Buy this and save your modding $$

I would not buy a car with any engine or suspension mods. Cosmetic stuff is fine as are brakes and emissions legal exhaust systems, IMO

to much money for a 2008.

To sell a modded car you have to be giving some one a deal. That is not a deal.
