I was just about to place an order on a 2000 323ci + sports package when my cousin told me that he is willing to sell me his 99 M3 convertible for $35,000 cdn (approx 23,300 usd). I know he takes good care of the car and has never been in an accident. The car only has 8000 kms on it since it rains a lot here in Vancouver (He has a NSX as well). The reason he is selling the car is because he is moving to Toronto and has his eyes set on the new M3. I would save about $ 10,000 if I buy the M3. On the other hand, the new coupe look pretty sweet. Which one would be more fun to drive? I am 18 and I would not want to make a bad decision buying my first car. Also, can someone tell me how much the M3 convertible is brand new? I don't feel comfortable asking my cousin. Your thoughts are much appreciated.
