: : 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.

I'd go for it! If you keep the car in good shape, 1t will retain its value.
