Advice Needed

Hey Guys,
My name is Jav and I will be soon moving to San Francisco from London for work.
I am very excited about the move but sad at having to give up my E92 M3 I have here.
Quick question- What's the market for used M3's look like- where is the best place to look? Also, is leasing an option? I will be there for 2 years...

Looking forward to getting into my left hand drive M

Jav, welcome to the bay area. Plenty of used E92 M3's here in california. You can try the following:

www.autotrader.com

www.cars.com

2 year leases from BMWUSA are not very favorable. you can try:

Good luck on your search and maybe you can join one of our local events.

If you have an M3 now, why do you need to give it up? Too much to import?

Thanks for the replies guys. I have thought of importing but it would cost a lot in taxes and shipping as well as having to do the conversion to headlights etc...
All in all too much of a headache,

As soon as I move which should be in the next couple of months I will reach out and hopefully join you guys for a meet

I paid $40K for my '08 with 40K miles about a year ago just to give you an idea. It is pretty well optioned as well.

good market in the Bay Area for M3's, new and used. Southern Cal is good as well.

If M3's price in UK is anything like what they are all over the world outside U.S., I'd sell it, bring the cash, and snap one up here!

Sell the E92, and use that money toward something different in the US. You might be able to find yourself a car that you never thought you would own in the UK

Thanks for the comments guys, I think I will sell it on and bring my cash over.
Tbh I would either buy another e92 m3 or go for a r35 gtr which my brother has over here.
