Notice they said retail my friend, take them for their money and bargain down at least 4-5 grand... It will add back Up once tax+fee but least you know you save extra 4-5? It is also listed on eBay the same vehicle... If you need help with anything just let me know...

not a bad price considering its a dealer but still a little high. kbb suggested retail is $30k for this car and no way in hell you should pay more than that. if you could get down to $27k i think that would be a sweet spot. truth is these beautiful cars dont have any value in this market so if they tell you kbb is a "guide" then they are retarded. e46 m3's dont have any value currently so in fact kbb is a good starting place, but ideally you want something lower. car looks super clean though its a good buy if you want a vert and smg

Hey dibxna, since you live in Arizona, you should join our Arizona BMW group on facebook. We have around 80 members so far and we meet up quite often at local events. You can go to Arizona BMW Crew on Facebook and just click on the request to join. Hope to see you on there...

Honestly I would go for something more modern. Start looking at a 2006-2008 Z4MC. Much better looking car and being a former owner of an E46 M3 and E86 M I would much rather own a E86 M if you must have a 2006 anything BMW.

I would offer low $20,000s cash and it will sell. Especially when the E46 holds no true value today.

Good luck

well the car isnt for me. i have an e90 m3 already so wouldnt consider something older than i have as the warranty is important to me and the guy interested in buying will be ready on fri/sat next week to pull the trigger. he's already owned an e46 vert before and just wanted to get back in to one for a year before upgrading to a new m3.

unfortunately the one i posted about above has been sold already so my buddy missed out on it. he may find something else more to his liking as we get ready to go out for the purchase next weekend!
