: Here's the deal..........

: I've dreamed about owning an E30 silver M3 for years........

: I found one last year, 1989 with 28K absolutely mint for $18,000........when I got to the guys house 4 hours away he sold it an hour before my arrival!!!

: I found another one last week, 1989 with 66K absolutely mint for $16,700........

: I'm having it checked out by a BMW Club mechanic and if he says it's OK I'm gonna buy it......

: Like you all, I hate to overpay for anything but I'm afraid I won't find another nice silver M3.......

: What do you all think? Thoughts, opinions?

: That really sucks that they sold it right out from under you. If you don't mind putting in work on your M3, I suggest buying a "not-so-mint" conditioned M3 for thousands less. I knew exactly what I was getting into when I bought my 88 w/77K miles for $7800, but figured $2000 for new paint, $1000 service, some TLC, and I have myself a mint M3 for just under 11K. I am in LA so there seems to be quite a few E30 M3's around, you may not have the availability where you are at.
