Wow, honestly, if that was 6mt and available this time next year, I'd probably be all over it. For a high mileage car my preference is definitely buy it off the forums since we're more inclined to take better care of cars. Thanks for sharing though!

I also think you should bump up the budget to ~$20k.

The difference between a $15k car and a $20k car is much different. And not just $5k different.

Many cars near or at the $15k level will be way higher on the mileage side, spotty history, and the condition will probably leave something to be desired...although that IB E92 linked above looks pretty nice.

Not saying it cant be done, but a $15k car wont stay there for long. It will undoubtedly need something soon. If that something is RBs and TAs, you're basically at the $20k mark without even getting a tank of gas!

Good luck in the search.

For those suggesting expand the budget to ~$20k, are you suggesting searching for cars that are $20k with hopes of getting them down to $17k or so? Or are you suggesting looking at cars for around $22-$23k and negotiating to $20k?

I ran across a e90 m3 with 130k miles and be bearings/arp bolts and a ton of other maintenance completed on autotrader. 16.5k. Could barely resist just buying it although 6 cars may be a bit too much

Or GenV Viper....

There is a good chance that might be caused by ABS/wheel speed sensor, had that happen on mine about 10K miles ago, replaced the sensor on both front wheels, problem solved. Cost about $100 for parts and very easy to do.

I'd leave it where it is and see what you can find. I think a lot of these cars have been used daily like mine, and once they get to higher mileages, they become hard to sell. And the hard facts are that COVID has dealt a major blow to the economy that will last for quite a while, making a lot of folks more careful in their spending habits, and driving the prices of expensive toys like these down.

. . . but I'm often wrong . . .

Good to know! I have all the stuff for a brake refresh just sitting in the garage waiting for the RB to be done, which should be this week. We'll see what lights that clears up and go from there.

When the tech doing the RB's pulled the codes, (which there were a TON of) he mentioned it seemed like someone put in a new battery and didn't recode things properly. I mean, there were a TON of codes. ABS pump not coded to vin for example, or something like that. I don't recall off the top of my head.

Once the RB's are done, I'll be able to dive into this thing...AND I'll be able to make my build thread, LOL!

Yes thats what i did
