If anyone else is looking at this vehicle, I would get it on a lift and really go over it.

Matte paint is a pain to maintain and just not sure about its longevity. That is why I would never buy a matte paint car.

Too bad about this particular frozen blue. The dealership is asking a whole lot for it and it has been sitting there since summer. What was the price you negotiated before you walked away?

There's only 3 frozen blue in the GTA that I know of including mine. Not to brag but I think mine is the only one that had been properly taken care of since day 1. Full car wrapped in Xpel and Opti coated and never winter driven.

Matt hope you've been well bro. Do you still only have 6k on the odometer after all these years.

If this car is ever on sale, everyone should jump on it.

Oh man I wish I would have told you about the original owner of this car. Did you know it was in An accident and thrashed beyond anything. Even after it was repaired there was damage to the car from this person being a goof and hitting stuff. I saw it before it was traded in. It was a mess. I wouldn't have touched it with a 10 foot pole. That car will not sell for much above 30k if that. It's a headache waiting for someone.

Are you SURE it's the same car?????

There was another Frosen Blue in the GTA that was listed on Autotrader that was abused as you describe.
It was definitely not this car.

I know this car isn't in great condition & you may be right, but if you aren't 100% sure it's the car you know.......

Maybe I'm wrong but damn two different ones? Either way that would be a bad coincidence two frozen blue ones were not taken care of

Agreed
I think its the other car on the listing with 50k km. Owner had his own listing on the autotrader at one point, same time as the dealer. Owner also had much more info on the damage as appose to that dealer.
Crazy how out of 26 cars i was looking at, now only 13 remained. All gone within a month. Thinking everyone just took the adds off for winter.

Hey bro, ive been itchy for months. Spring was the plan but now may be summer, which sucks as i want one and would be able to get one by the end of Feb.
My house was supposed to be finished in the beginning of April but now they moved the closing date to August. Which means I will not apply for mortgage that early. My plan was to get everything set with the house first then go for the car. Time will tell all i can do right now is work, work, work.

Good thing right now most adds on cars were taken down. Nothing available to drool over. Keeps my mind off it.
P.S i've been watching the trader since sept and crazy how lucky you gotten with the car you have. Color option and trany is not even on my list as ill be happy with any but would be great if i get lucky on a rare one.

Wondering what happened to the one at Georgian BMW. It's not listed anymore.

Such coincidence there's two 2013 Frozen blues with DCT and black ZCP rims on sale in the GTA at around the same time and both are thrashed.

I was wondering the same thing too.

The search is still going for me. I'm going to look at a white 2013 with the fox red interior this weekend at BMW autohaus in Thornhill. It is on their website, and also on autotrader if anyone wants to have a peek.

Hope its okay to add links

http://www.autotrader.ca/a/bmw/m/tho...%202T6&sprx=-1

If anyone recognizes it, can they let me know any details on it?

Thanks,

777

Yeah, I keep staring at those Km's. It is definitely higher than I want. I do love the rest of the setup though.

Could be in a good shape with a proper maintenance record. May be the dealer could extend the warranty for the buyer as well. Let us know how it goes

Donít let the mileage scare you, M3s are very reliable despite the forum horror stories. I drove almost 100k over two M3s without a single hiccup. If you are worried, negotiate to extend that warranty to 2020 and keep the mileage the same.

+1

My 2010 has more than 155K on it. The only major repair it needed was the throttle actuators. Otherwise the car has been flawless. I reckon I'll drive it till it hits 300k kms.

Did you end up checking this M3 out in Thornhill? I had my eye on it too and was curious to hear your thoughts on it!
