What are Lime Rock editions really trading hands for?

I'm in the market for an e92 Lime Rock Edition. In looking around I see cars listed for high $60s- low $70s. But it also seems like cars listed at these prices sit around for a long time. Are these cars really trading hands at these prices, or are these cars just the ones that folks are hoping the right buyer comes along and is willing to pay that premium? Any data out there for prices for actual transactions? I can't see paying as much for an e92 as a new f82 even with spiffy orange paint.....

Where's the guy who bought one fully expecting to get $200,000 in a year or two from it.

Haven't seen him post in quite some time.

I would aim for around low $50ks. I attribute about a $4k premium for the special color and badge.

I was at Center BMW (Van Nuys, CA) today for an oil change.

They have a 2012 on the lot. Sticker is $63k.

I believe Limerock edition only for year 2013. So those are the one with the badge on the center console.

I would think by next year you could snag these in the 40's. But, right now I think most 2013's are still going in the 50's

Although most Lime Rocks are being listed in the 60's, I don't think anyone is paying that much with that being close to new M3/M4 pricing

if well cared for, they can get higher numbers... not saying this because I am an owner, but because for this particular build, that is simply the case. yes there is a sheet build code aside from the simple placard on the center console. Northeast and West Coast seem to get higher #'s.

You're paying for a more exclusive vehicle. If you see it as nothing more than paint/wheels/badge, you're not in their target demographic.

You can order an individual color and have a more exclusive car than a lime rock. lol so you are right I'm not the person to buy a car becuase a color and badge that I can special order thousands of dollars cheaper. It's pretty sad.

If the lime rock was a represenation of a car coming with ablities like the GTS maybe at least the stroked motor then it would makes sense. Then again you have those that buy things just to say they bought something others didn't. Hell it's funny I've seen more lime rock m3s here in florida then I have yellow m3s period. But good one.

There exists a story behind the story. For some it is the personal connection to LRP. For others the most important component of the LRP is BMW's Competition Package, which lowers the suspension by 0.4 inches, the Inconel-titanium M Performance exhaust ,19-inch wheels and EDC**. This build is very likely to make up the difference in long-term residual values as a collector's piece. Lastly, off the lot, it is track ready.


** could you order a car with those options, yes, but not a LRP....

LRP is another special addition for a particular enthusiast similar to how the frozen worked....

Not track ready, stock pads and fluid will not hold up.

If if they did it would be no more track ready than any other m3 lol...I'm not sure what the point of mentioning a LR being track ready as the thought process is already that any m3 is track ready. End of the day. If you want the car for the color and bagde than get it but, justifying a 10k price jump for that given reason is laughable. Lastly a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

Look no further than the E36 M3 LTW prices as of late. That was a basic S50 (colloquially referred to as the US crap engine) with aluminum doors, race bits that came in the truck (LTW wing, splitter, strut brace, and dual pickup oil pan), and some decals and plaques.

I'm bitter too because I passed on a 30,000 mile cherry one for about 30 grand back in 2008. Same car recently sold for $75,000.

It's all about cars that came in limited editions, regardless of whether they were truly special or not.

Of the E90x M3s, I'd say the 2011 enthusiast spec'd sedans, 2013 coupes with individual colors, and of course the LRE will be the ones to appreciate down the road.

Has anyone bought a Lime Rock recently to share what they paid for it?

I'll be in the market for one within the next year.
