sounds like a good deal

I think this would be a good deal for someone who bought a coupe and realizes its not a great family car. Circumstances change and people require different cars soon after they made their purchase....The sedan which is up for trade sounds like a car with attractive options and a good color combination. I would expect this to be a proposition that at least a few members would be interested in if they now want a sedan. Of course, the exchange of money would be totally dependant on the coupe's miles, options, model year, etc, etc....

I got the MoonRoof and it didn't change the price of my M, when you build your car and it says the moonroof option there is a 0$ in the right column, not a -2500$ . Good Luck getting a coupe though

Cause it's NOT an option, you're payin for it either way, so may as well get it.

Anyway, the cars are exactly the same except for the CF roof which adds $2500 to the price of the car. The CF roof comes standard. If the Sedan offered a CF roof as an option, it would add roughly $2500 to the price of the car, bringing it to exactly the price of the Coupe.
$59,625 Coupe
$57,175 Sedan (without Moonroof)
$58,225 Sedan (with Moonroof)

As a point of refference, here's a CF roof to go on an M3 CSL. $2900 is the price, and that my friends is AFTERMARKET!!

http://www.bimmernav.com/store/catal...-item-132.html

"Hey guys, I bought an M3 and they through in a CF roof, for FREE!!"
"Than why is it $2500 more than the Sedan that doesn't get a CF roof?"
"Err...uh.. ..cause it's a sedan"

Ridiculous!!

Actually Buddy you are wrong.
If what you say has any logic to it then how do you explain this :

E90 335 Starting Price : 40,300$
E92 335 Starting Price : 42,200$

And the E92's Msrp is 1900$ More then the E90 because of what? Carbon Fiber roof right???? lol

Coupe's are always more Expensive then they're 4 door siblings. Not only Bmw's but every brand.

RIGHT ON, you just unwittingly made my point!! The reason they don't charge you for it on the coupe and they do on the sedan is cause you've already been charged (silently) for the CF roof.

On the sedan (such as mine), the Moonroof is an "extra" $1100.

Nope, that's not it. Coupes "generally" have more options than their Sedan counterparts (usually sport type parts).

On the 335i:
Coupe gets fold down rear seats standard a $500 option on the sedan.
The coupe gets sport suspension $700
Coupe gets a better exhaust, or at least the upgrade to exhaust on the coupe is $500 cheaper than on the sedan.
I'm pretty sure the wheels are upgraded on the coupe as well.

If all this is true, it adds up to at least $2k....or close enough to see why there's a $2k difference in the 2 cars.

It's ALL in the fine print, "buddy."

Someone is REALLY gonna have to have a hardon for your sedan in order to give up their coupe for it.

Of all the M3's available right now the E90 with 6MT is the least desireable , not that I am hating on the M3. Its just a fact.

I think if you find someone willing to trade you will have to pony up a few g in addition to the car

I'd only be willing to pony up the difference for whatever fair market value is. If someone really wants/needs to trade their Coupe and like what I have to offer, neither of us are losing and both are gaining.

When I bought the sedan I thought it would be my daily driver and only car. Now that I have the Jeep, I decided I want more of a dedicated sports car.

I don't see the logic here. what you said just prove that no one would ever trade their coupe for your sedan unless you pony up 5G.

I mean the point is not cf roof or not, but starting price of coupe is 58k and sedan is 55k. So why would anyone trade their coupe which is better looking, more dedicated sport car, better weight distrubution. Not only that, bmw offer more discount on the sedan. I heard somewhere that sedan get like 4-5k discount before. Coupe sold at msrp or more.

Actually not tru. Sedan and coupes both hold their value similarly. ...and people that get a sedan, usually buy them cause they like them better. They also both drive and perform exactly the same.

Anyway, I won't kick in any more than the actual price difference for the cars. If it doesn't happen, no biggie.

I agree they both might hold value similarly, but base price difference is 3k. So unless you are trading your fully loaded sedan with someone's basic option coupe, I wouldnt call that a fair trade. (Despite the mileage difference here)

That been said, you might wanna just post up the price you paid for the car for a better chance of a swap.

The difference between "my" car and an exact optioned coupe is $1400. When you add a Moonroof to the sedan, that's the price difference. I'll say it once again, if there were an option to add a CF roof to a Sedan, it would be the exact difference and they would cost the same.

$69k and change was sticker.

you should conduct a poll in the general section to see how many coupe drivers regret on not getting the moonroof.

I love my Moonroof so i can flip off the guy in the AMG behind me
This thread totally lost topic, Did you ever try contacting the dealer on a trade in? you might lose the same amount of money as trading someone and forking over some cash to them. Just a thought.

Ya, this thread shows you how freakin' douchy people can be.

Anyway, I'm not about to lose a "ton" of money by doing a "lateral" move. This isn't an upgrade. You'd think by the responses I'm getting that Im moving from a M3 to a new M6, or 911 GT3.

It's really f#$%ing simple. If anyone has an M3 Coupe that needs an M3 sedan and it's an even playing field, we'll switch 'em. For example, if "everything" is the same on the cars exactly, but I have the hi-fi audio ($2k) and they don't, it's an even swap. If everything is EXACTLY the same (my MR vs their CF roof), I'd be willing to kick over a G or so. I could care the F less what all these people think about how much better a Coupe looks. In this thread, opinions are truly like assholes!!

I think this thread shows you how marketing works on some idiots. They throw in a CF roof, and up against a moonroof it's literally $1400 differnence on a $70 THOUSAND dollar car, and these DB's would jump out of a 20 story window to get it over a sedan.

Should have kept the 911s and had the Jeep. IMHO the M3 coupe is not any "sportier" than the M3 sedan. It's just about looks I suppose.

I agree, it's only about the looks. I buy a new car a year. This car will a year old this May.

It was a 2001 911 Turbo with 27k miles, not an S. It had a year of certified warranty left. I wanted to get up out of it before it had no warranty. I got a great price on the Turbo and like the M3 way more.

I think what most of the people are trying to say even if there is a very small difference in price of the cars the fact is the coupe's sell for 2-3k more at least. Its like trading your car for a Original elanor Mustang and because it only cost them 5,000$ they should give you 65k in the trade ... when in reality that cars is worth like 5 times what our cars worth because of the market value. It is what it is and people's opinions are what make something worth something. Like diamonds. They are just rocks!

Anyways the e90 is a great car. And if i had a family etc. i would probably look into a trade. Good luck and im sure someone will come along
