Where did you find your M3?

Hi guys,

So I have this ideal M3 in my head (Interlagos/Black, 6MT, Coupe, Carbon roof, Comp Package). I've been searching for the past few weeks with no luck. I've noticed some cars could be found randomly on dealer websites so I'm not sure if there is anyway to search that. I usually use..

Cars.com
Autotrader
Craigslist
eBay Motors
BMW USA (Pre-owned)

Any other ideas? How did you find yours?

Thanks,
Mike

Autotrader. Like you, I was very picky about what I wanted, and it actually took me almost half a year to find mine. Right color combo, 6MT and CF roof. Surprisingly hard to find, with the mileage and price I wanted.

I set Autotrader alert, but it ended up being completely cross country in California. Had it shipped to South Carolina and was extremely happy with the car.

Definitely keep an eye out on the forums. Put up a WTB ad, eventually something might show up!

I was looking on Autotrader, Cars.com, ebay, this forum, and actual BMW dealer websites within a 750 mile radius from me. Found "the one" on autotrader in Houston at a BMW dealer. Honestly only took a couple of weeks. It really a hit or miss.

Anne?

I was on cars.com and found mine with 8000 miles on it tucked away in a garage across the river here in New Orleans. I was lucky.

CL is another place. It took me over 4 months and couldn't find one and I finally decided to buy new. Some guys took over 6 months for the "right" one.
