How rare is this spec?

I just purchased an e93 2008 M3 with 38k miles with the following specs:

-White
-convertible
-fox red extended interior
-manual
-no nav

How rare is this car? I ask because I have never seen an e93 m3 without nav. Maybe its more common than I realize but Iíve just never seen it. Add in that this is a manual with the extended fox red leather, and Iím starting to think there may not be many like it.

Iíve seen a number of no nav E93s. Not a ton obviously because single hump cars are rarer to begin with.

The rest of your spec does indeed seem quite rare. Have fun with it.

Here is an initial pic taken by the seller. I'll take better pics soon and upload.

38K miles, clean carfax, never damaged, interior is 9.5/10 and so is the exterior. Wonder what its worth. I think I got a pretty good deal.

this also has enhanced premium sound, this is an excellently specíd car. Is it mineral white or alpine? Mineral has a bit more depth to it.

It is wood. But I donít think thats why its rare. Either way the car looks new. I got it for 20k. Seemed like a steal.

I would stop driving your rare car right away. Park it and buy a beat up Camry to drive instead.

Swap that trim yesterday!!


I also didnít know you could get EPS/IA Audio without iDrive. How would you adjust the equalizer, which is a primary benefit/component of that system?

Not a fan of the wood? I donít think thats what makes it a somewhat rare spec but I agree that if I were optioning it out, I would have gone with the carbon rather than the wood. Still, can you be that picky? I donít see any close to this spec for sale anywhere.

I like it.. needs more wood though. Too bad they didn't do the center console and shift knob and some other trim to match.

That's a cool spec for sure. Enjoy. I'd swap the trim for silver standard imo, red white and silver are a nice combo.

It wouldn't stop me from buying the car because a swap to the leather CF trim is trivial or it could be wrapped with something else.

You do it on the head unit, my 335d has the invidual (enhanced eps) with no I drive.

The only thing "rare" is the wood trim and that's because no one picked it. Pick up a set of CF trim for $5-600 and call it a day.
