Ten to twelve years after the release of E36s & E46s, you could pickup a clean example for $10-$20k. The same cannot be said for the E9x M3. Good examples are still selling in the 30s ten to twelve years after their inception. I beleive people appreciate the fact that these cars are the last geneartion M3s with machanical steering, NA engines, no fake engine sounds, etc.

I could be totally wrong, time will tell.
I agree. What's in our favor is that early F8x's sound horrible and are a bit leary in the wet (and the dry for that matter). Anyone in the market for an M3 must surely be questioning why to spend the extra on an early F8x vs a clean E9x, and I think that keeps our values high.
