$40,000 e92 M3?

Scam?

Any thoughts on why this price is so low? I'm not interested, but a friend of mine is. Anyone out there know this particular machine?

For the record, I do not know the seller, I live at the far corner of the country, and I am in no way associated with this car/sale/seller. Just wondering why it's going so low.

I spoke too soon - M3Forum has a thread (http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=223831) abo9ut Craigslist post with the same pictures but a different posting number - that was flagged for removal. They're pretty sure it's a scam, which it probably is.

Definitely A Scam

I just checked Craigslist for the same car (search terms 2008 M3) and it's available everywhere I've looked (Vegas, Atlanta, New York).

Don't remove the post, though, because people should see this.
