In Reply to: Is this a good deal for 88 M3 posted by Wolf on December 22, 1999 at 12:59:18:
: I have found an 88 E30 M3 with 123,000k miles never been in an accident. 100% stock. Interior is in excellent condition exterior paint is good just bumped a curb on the front lip while parking. Engine is strong and owner has most if not all maintenance records done at local dealer. The miles are a bit high but car runs better than other M3's I have test driven with lower miles.
: If everything checks out okay with mechanic is $11,000 a good deal just wanted some opinions.
: Thank You
It depends on what you are looking for. Does it need a re-paint? Maintenance items on these cars can get real expensive real quick. Some parts can cost 3 times that of a 325i. Get an estimate of everything it needs. Find out who the real enthusiasts in your local chapter of the BMW CCA are going to and pay him/her the $50/hr they charge. Could be the best money you ever spent. Remember, you are buying an exotic car - actually a race car.
