High 30's for a 98 w/ 25K is too much. I paid 38K for my '99 CPO w/5800 miles, in virtually new condition. 34-35K sounds about right for a '98 car in good shape.

As has been said many times on this site, if you want an M3, be patient and shop around. The right car at the right price is out there. Be creative in where you look, and consider going out of area if you find the right car. This is where the Internet comes in real handy....

: Guys, I'm thinking about buying a certified pre-owned M3 at a local dealer...the salesman didn't have the paperwork handy to tell me what year it is because it was literally brought in an hour befor I got there, but the car is a 96-98 off-lease vehilcle with about 25K miles on it. Car was in average condition. Had some small scratches, a few little gouges in the rear bumper, slight curb rash on one wheel, some pen marks on passenger seat. It looked like it was in decent shape, but I don't know what else to look for. What price could I expect to pay? I asked the guy ballpark, and he said high 30's, which I thought was way, way too high.

: For a car with the stated mileage and options, autosite was giving me a price of about $28K for a 96, $31K for a 97, and $34K for a 98. What price do you think would be a reasonable deal.

: thanks in advance for all of the help.
