You did right with getting the cloth+6sp. I thought about bidding on that one to add a 6 speed to the stable, but I'm a stickler for heated seats and Individual Audio. I shopped for my car for over a year before finding the combo I wanted. Its going to be worse getting my build with the gear-stirrer this time. Manuals were sitting on lots when I started shopping but they've dried up now.

As far as the price goes... I'm happy for everyone concerned, especially me. The prices on low-mile cars are climbing and my car is just over 21k. I'll probably hit 23k by January... of 2021.

Yeah, you never know in an auction if there's shill bidder, but it's done and you got a rare spec car with very low mileage. Undercarriage looks superb like one would expect with that mileage and no winter roads. I noticed in one pic of a tire that there is a plug at a location in the beginning of an edge tread block, so I'd look closely at that as it might have been plugged when it should have been replaced (hard to guess since picture is cut off), but new PS4S should be on tap for such a cool car anyway.

Enjoy the beautiful E92!

Or consider getting a PPF on there. My car has the previous gen 3M film (Invisiguard?), a whole body treatment installed when the car was new in 2011. Even though the windshield has a billion (I counted them) tiny stone chips in it, the paint looks perfect. The PPF did its job. I'll eventually have the glass replaced, but thats a lot easier to do then repaint the car.

Only drawback to the film, assuming you go top shelf and get XPel, its pricey. I think its $7k to get the whole car done with that stuff.

PPF would be nice on a spec like that, but it would require the 100% detail before being worth it... The detail is the key, then depending on how much he plans to drive it, add the PPF or Ceramic coating. But gotta get those dings and swirls fixed #1 on a 46K car.

I'm not a fan of Jerez but I'd say you scored. Any mods included?

no mods - which is what I wanted. Been looking a long time for an e93 m3 late in the production run with low miles. 1 owner with all service records was a huge plus.

jerez wasn't my first choice but that hint of blue in bright light does look cool.

car is home safe! I'm stoked on it, it's my dream car so it's worth it to me.

I want to get a detail like that but where should I go? I can't even find a place that will charge that much.. I'm looking at details, I see "full detail" for $210 from a mobile service with good reviews.

Please recs for somewhere in Los Angeles that will do my car justice in the 1.5-2k range?

While there are no doubt some mobile guys that do a perfect job and treat your car like a rare artifact, a lot of these guys use no-name products made by bulk product contractors, they do the job in the sun, and they use cloths and mitts with synthetic threads. For that reason, I can't recommend using a mobile detailer.

Happy for you! enjoy it! I would look for a professional speciality detailer... many search results for auto detailing are just people who are washing/deep cleaning cars. Search for ceramic coating, polishing, etc.. find a place that does supercars or primarily high end vehicles, and that's directionally the type of place you want doing this properly. It will be so worth it, they will teach you how to maintain and properly wash it, etc. I'm sure people on here can chime in on recommended shops, but just find the best one before you spend real $ on it.

2010 E92 M3, 56k miles, AW, 6 speed, Carbon Roof, EDC.

Mods: Dinan catback, black grilles and badges, CF wing. TB’s replaced at 46k with records.

Paid $27,100 private party. I suspect I overpaid a bit but I’m impatient.

I've already spec'd out $15k in mods, including RB's and paint correction/ceramic pro.

I don't think you overpaid that price seems great, especially considering one of the two big issues is already done.

It's truly impossible to speculate on that. Take two E90 M3s with identical 70k miles at this age; let's say they are even 2011 models, so have been on the road for 9 years. Now ponder one that was garaged 24/7, never driven on winter roads, owned by a crazed enthusiast so given royal treatment the entire time, and was never a daily driver. The second car had 3 owners, lived outside since new 24/7, driven year round up north on salt roads, and used as a daily driver commuter car.

In other words, especially at this age, the market will definitely value the car's history and condition in some cases significantly.
