: Today I saw a 1989 M3 with 94500 miles on it. It was Black with Grey leather. The leather is perfect and the interior is in very good condition. On the exterior is a good size dent where someone backed into it. The dent is located where the passenger door and fender meet. He said it should be about a $1000 to fix (I am not sure). There is also a vibration in the steering under hard braking - the car is lowered with Eibach springs and the inside of the tires are worn well - he said it is causing the vibration - again I am unsure. The car seems to be in very good condition. I am no mechanic and I dont know a lot about cars - especially ///M cars (I own a 325es). He says he would like to sell for about $10,000 - I can probably go lower. What do you guys think? Any feedback would be great. I would not buy at $10,000 mostly because of that dent and it needing new tires, but what do you think? THank you - Joe.
I bought my 88 M3 in similar condition with 78K miles and paid $7800 for it. My car just needs a paint job and some minor work, other than that it's great!
