To me, the price really depends on how the car looks, drives, and how it was maintained. Does it have all the maintenance records? How is the paint and trim? Was it repainted, because I don't remember Avus blue being a color for 1995. Any scratches or dents? How is the engine? You may want a independent mechanic of your choosing inspect it. You may want to have the owner drive it so maybe you can see how he drives it - hard, soft, or well. If everything checks out OK, then of course try to get a better price. However, it does not seem too bad of a price for that kind of mileage, and if it has been very well maintained. Remember, if you don't like it, move on and find another. Good luck.

Paul N. '95 M3 Cosmos black

Hi everyone, my name is Mark and I am considering buying a 1995 M3. This will be the first trip into BMWdome as I have a Jetta VR6 currently (and a GTI 16v racecar). Anyway, I have driven several M3's and today I drove a 95 M3 (Avus blue with black leather). Totally pristine car with 38k miles on the clock. Kinda special car, has the black sport seats with no heated seats or power seats. No sunroof or cruise control. Anyway the car is pristine was maintained by Dinan up in San Francisco and now resides down here in San Diego. The owner is asking $26,000. Is that a fair price? Oh the car has NO mods.

Anyway, that is about it. Just wanted to introduce myself. Oh, one little note is it me or does the 3.0l feel punchier down low and just a little bit sweeter (aka smoother etc.) than the 3.2l? I don't know much technically about these cars so maybe you guys can provide insight.
