Seattle M3 used

Hey guys, I know there are a few of you looking (or was looking) for an M3, cos 3 used M3s sold in the last week.

I waiting to pull the trigger on mine, but nothing ideal is coming up for me.

I want a White one, carbon fibre roof (no stupid sunroof), DCT and nav. Thats all I ask but there is not one in seattle

Anyway, has anyone bought/dealt with elliot bay auto brokers or definitive motors?

Try posting in the Northwest subforum. I'm sure you'll get more answers from locals.

Elliot Bay usually sells lease returns and definitive's inventory is mostly manufactures buy backs including both M3s they have....

If you are looking for decent clean cars take a look at park place and if you are flexible on DCT transmission take a look at my ad.

Looking for an E36 M3 or E46 M3? Is this going to be an only car or a weekend only car?

Hey guys, thanks for the info.

Test drove the 2008 E93 today from elliot bay...

Car:
-did not have carfax online, requested in person, shows accident reported.
-damage seems to be rear bumper and RR panel
-FR panel was plastic, not sure if this is default, please clarify (did not inspect FL panel - my oversight)
-original tires (Michelin), nearly bald
-engine, transmission checked out OK i think
-Roof couldn't close (was not disclosed to me), dealer said they would take it BMW seattle as it is on warranty (Carfax says car from auction, previous state: New York)
-$48,880 (fair price?), 25k miles...

Dealers:
-tried to play it cool, seemed like they tried too hard to be cool...

I'm not sure how to quote multiple message per post so sorry for multiple postings...

They also have a 11 E93 for $58,880 with 11k miles, but alot of scratches on the hook and trunk.... is that a better deal?

It says you are from Calgary,AB, I'm kinda new to the US but I think thats in canada? Where is the car located? and details (price & pictures).

Although, I'm slightly less interested in modified ones (I want to do my own).

That is very useful, how do you get this information, is this car-specific? or a generalisation? Park place sold their modded 11 black one, the modded red is still there, will go on friday.

Sorry, I don't know how to navigate this forum too well, how do I find your ad?

It is generalization and experience. When someone is selling a car that is $8-10K cheaper than what it should be, there is usually something wrong with the car. Park place is one of the few "used car" dealers that has generally good inventory.

Here is a link to my ad on the forum and the if you search Seattle CL for a 2011 M3 you will also find that ad.... Let me know if you have any questions.

probably off topic, but the 2009 jaguar XKR is in the same price and so is the previous generation 6 series (650/M6), any thoughts?
