Arrow Poll Yes another one Question How young was your M3 at Purchase

This has not been asked as far as I know ...

Results should be interesting

My e92M3 was about 8 years old when I purchased it. Currently has about 200,000 miles on it, with 1 year left of warranty.

That is super, we still have our first e28 (535is from 1987) also over 200,000 miles feels great!

I know the feeling, so did I when I purchased my first e46 M3 used. Always a smart move.

Ok, i have to confess; I am picking up mine today!
2011 E90 M3, DCT (yes Rolf, I know what you are going to say), w/ 16k miles.
I found a great "take over lease" deal from a gentleman; a deal that I couldn't pass.
Stay tune for photos.

All I can say is congratulations, you did well. My first one was used also and served me well from 2004 to 2010.

something about that new car smell that turns the brain off to the depreciation hit when you turn the key.

I don't mind buying a used one; as long as it has been serviced properly, and all the car looks meticulous.
In fact, my very first E36 M3 had 14k on it-if my memory serves me right. I loved every minute of it. The smile that I had driving back home that night was unexplainable.

Leased my new as I can write off most of the lease. If not, then I would have saved and bought used 2011 for $59k.
