Thanks for the tip, he is asking nearly 3-4 times more than what others are selling for!

It's wishful thinking, especially in this market. Eventually this car could fetch a good price at auction, but there are too many still on the road and the collectors haven't moved to the 80s yet.

Wow, severely overpriced! Most can be had for around $14-20k currently with lower mileage. He's probably banking (literally) on the fact it's only 7.2k miles. I doubt it will sell at that rate.

+ you can't drive it, the value is based on the mileage. 60K museum piece - that's about it.

Its probably worth closer to 40K...and a true die-hard collector/enthusiast would pay that price.

Should change it to a 20 year listing, maybe then he will get 60K.

A similar E30 M3 with a bit more mileage could not sell for CAD $22K at my dealership in Montréal. "reserve never met"

Yeah, assuming that's a near-perfect low mileage example of an E30 M3, $30,000 is the most he'll get for it.

He'd be better off going with a broker for a specialized car like that.....he may get lucky with a collector. He'll never sell that thing on ebay at that price.
