haha for a second I thought you said that because of CSL. Silver grey and titanium silver are very common and both great. 46M came on many many beautiful colors.

First off I plan to use the tax return for preventative maintenance Rod bearings in particular, I love how u are assuming what kind of buyer I am because of an opinion on a forum. Iím not going to going to buy a 128 k mile 2008 e92 from wesellcarsusa. I have criteria for the car I purchase including certain options just like everyone else on here. I know Iím young but please donít put me in that category of stupid buyers.The e92 m3 has been my favorite car since Iíve been 8 years old and I have been saving for almost a year and plan to continue untill I find the one I want. But If I had 50 k right now Id be in a m4 tommorow thatís just me. I couldnít imagine paying that much for a e92 but hey THATS JUST MY OPINION. A manual transmission isnít that meaningful to me as the next guy. I donít plan on driving it into the ground I donít even plan on dd the car for Christ sakes. I want to keep the car untill I have kids. Some of u guys take this forum to serious😂😂😂.

I personally think that E90/92 M3 values are holding up fairly strong...if you look at them in conjunction with E36/E46 M3 values in period, the E9x generation is holding it's value far better. Ten to twelve years after the release of E36s & E46s, you could pickup a clean example for $10-$20k. The same cannot be said for the E9x M3. Good examples are still selling in the 30s ten to twelve years after their inception. I beleive people appreciate the fact that these cars are the last geneartion M3s with machanical steering, NA engines, no fake engine sounds, etc.

I could be totally wrong, time will tell.

Talking to auto enthusiasts in Germany and in the US, I was told not to be too hasty in devaluing the first year car. It had a shorter year of production and more care was put into fit and finish. In fact, they said the further away you get from the first run, original '08, it will hold value as well if not better. Time will tell.

As someone in the market for one and willing to pay top dollar(45k is my budget) to compliment my Paint to Sample GT4 in the garage, only a small number of cars can command the 35-45k price point that someone like me is willing to pay. It's either an individual color M3 or a "enthusiast spec stripper" car. But even if its a stripper spec, no one's going to be paying 40k+ for it if it's an 08. They really have to be 2011+ for the E92 or 09+ for the E90's but probably a 2011 with ZCP.

Very true.

An individual, stripper spec, LCI ZCP is where the money is at.
