This one checks all your boxes, 2nd color choice (Jet Black). I don't follow E92 pricing, but it seems pretty high to me?

This one also checks all the boxes, though the color is unknown (BMW Individual), would have to call the dealer and have them check the sticker under the hood. Maybe it's Ruby Black!

The first one is insanely high priced. Iím currently shopping a car with half the miles and $8k less. Dealers are so out of sight on their cars. They need help paying for their customer lounges, I guess.

The second car is one of the 2012 Fire Orange coupes I mentioned to Lawrence. Maybe heíd be interested in that one. Myself, unless it costs at least $90k and has a little plaque saying how special it is, I donít want it.

That is the dealer asking price, not what you may actually pay. You are probably not going to find the exact car you want and get it wholesale too! lol What was wrong with the white one that I posted?

The car was fine. Alpine Weiss is at the bottom of my list. If I was going to get a white car it would be Mineral, and Iím not too interested in that either.

2013 Black on black with ZCP 26K miles for $45K isn't so outrageous IMO. I'm sure you can bring it down to low 40K if they think you are serious.

I would also check CarMax. Time to time they have some really nice examples, and they can deliver to wherever you are.

You paid way under market in 2016. That's the price today for that car.

Still, a year later, I search for the perfect car. I keep finding the wrong ones. Over the past 6 months every car that meets my requirements on options and color shows up with a hideous two tone interior. Or the options are perfect, wonderful interior, and the car will have a sunroof.

The worst part is that three months ago I found three cars that met my requirements, and by then I had committed to a business deal that required my outstanding cash. I found a 2011 ZCP with a 6 speed and 19,166 miles at Dallas Lease returns for $35,800. Then I caught a 2011 Comp DCT with 20,916 miles for $36,995 at Land Rover of Denver. Finally, Hiley Acura of Fort Worth came up with a 2011 Comp DCT at 31,325 miles for $32,896.

For a month I was watching those three, hoping that things would break for me and I could go snap one of them up. They all went. I figured "where there's three there'll be more".

I actually found a car that was among the rarest of the rare - the Ruby Black I mentioned in my first post here. I put it on hold because of something else that I saw...

What really hit me was the 2012 ZCP/DCT that showed up in my state in July. One of the big BMW dealers caught a trade off a very naive customer that gave them a very low mile - think 14K - car, complete with Active Autowerke Level 3 SC, full Stoptech big brake kit, and KW v3 coilovers. The car checked every box, and they only wanted $39.9k for it. It had $26,000 in mods before the labor, and they only wanted $39,9k.

I had talked with the sales girl and tried to work out a deal. We spoke on a Friday, she told me they couldn't sell the vehicle due to the airbag recall, and we were supposed to talk when she got back in the office on Monday. I figured, damn the deal, I need to close on this car!

I didn't hear from her, and when I called on Tuesday she said one of the people at the dealership snapped up the car.

I've been running BOOF into the weeds helping me shop for cars. I'm about numb to all of it now, and its very hard for me to get interested in anything after that SC car.

Just venting, guys. I'm pretty sure this stuff will eventually work out and I'll be in an E92 ZCP. Damn, its frustrating.

Fahrenheit911, run this web-bot thingie at the link below and it will find some nice M3s for you. A forum member on a similar quest to you created it.

PS:
It takes a while to crawl web forums and load.. and seems to load better in I.E. than Firefox.

PPS:
This is the original "I built a private car sales search engine" thread.. Hint: Use the filters.

I lifted those four links from the "Hidden Rides" search results and then posted them merely as candidates that seemed quite close to your original post search criteria (want list).

Unfortunately not. The first two links were the same car on two different forums, and they pointed to a frozen white car. Thats on my "no" list, where I said "No red, no frozen colors, no wood trim".
Third one was a nice spec, except it was a Fox Red interior - no red. And the miles were double my limit of 30k.
The fourth one was Fire Orange - which isn't even on my list as good or bad, because I never thought one would be available at a reasonable price. However, that car is in Canada, and I'm not going to go through that.

I appreciate the help. I think I'm going to take a month away from this stuff - again - and try when the weather cools off and people are trying to get out of these cars before the snow hits.
