Lime Rock E92 M3 Pricing

Hi all. Hope everyone having a wonderful day. Just wondering if anyone knows a good price for a low mileage (10k and lower )Lime Rock? On a M special website (EAG) they sell for around 70k and I thought it's quite overpriced. Thanks!

Good luck getting one, EAG will probably buy it up and jack up the price before you even get the chance. It’s what they do, they’ve been trying to drive up the price of LRP M3s for a while now

Let me start by saying I have nothing against the LRP M3's but to me it is simply an individual color, a plaque on the arm rest and some carbon fiber bits on the exterior. No other special performance additions... If someone values the color and the carbon fiber bits, more power to them. The color could be ordered, the CF bits could be added at anytime. The only difference between the LRP M3 and another M3 is the simple plaque on the arm rest... just my opinion and not worth the premium over some quality M3's that are available out there.

Yeah, what they ask for is quite high.

It is!! We own an Inka Orange 1974 Tii so I'm biased... just not at that price.

That is pretty much market value for such a low mile individual color M3... I don't consider it's overpriced at all

It comes with the BMW Iconel Performance exhaust too as standard equipment so you can't really say "No other special performance additions"

That could be added to any M as well. Not bashing the car, but does the exhaust, color and some CF bit make the car worth $30k more than a comparably equipped M, not for me.

As an owner I'm obviously biased and believe that the ECU is also tinkered with to allow more slip.

I bought from EAG and super happy with the quality of the car, and stellar maintenance history. They do NOT buy every LRP, only those with good history...do your homework.

And for what it's worth, I tried for 6 months to contact as many LRP owners as I could find to buy directly and prices were at or way above EAG levels but not always with the proper maintenance. Hell, some poor delusional soul wanted $92k for his...

Good luck with your search and you'll have to pay to play...

The MSRP for the Lime Rock package was an additional $10K USD which included:
ZCP package (wheels, cf bits, suspension)
M-Perf Exhaust
M-Perf Alcantara Blue stripe flat bottom steering wheel
Individual fire orange paint
Additional tweaking of the traction control
Lime Rock Badge and window sticker

It's actually a bargain because so much is included for the $10K USD. I got mine for $1K over invoice

Cheers Leemik. Believe the ZCP option was around $3.5k here at the time. 6.5k for individual colour and MPE sounds steep but who said its cheap to stand out and the colour is stunning.

I would pay 70k for the lime rock edition but I drool over them hard and would love to own one some day. I've had two e90s and generally prefer them over the e92s but I'd pay premium price for LRE...

EAG has a few and a couple of those are below $70k. Look them up and good luck...
