Slash, that Audi specializes in depreciation. Looking low/mid 40s for a 36/45k lease.

Black

Edit: although at 60k, that's Cayman s territory. Completely different cars though. Hmph.

I'm tempted.

Already thinking of ditching your car because you got a small scratch on it?!

Wait 2 years and get a used one.

GTRs are for people that wanted Ivan Drago to win in Rocky IV.

This is what I'd do if I were in the market for almost any newish car. I'm not particularly drawn to SUV's myself but I know most people seem to be and I think the F-Pace is fairly compelling on the surface.

I still search for e39 540i's and first gen Cayman's when I think about cars.

Thanks for the heads up.  I will be sure to look into that!

You have to be a member for a year to claim the rebate.

Don't let the dealer know you're a member when negotiating price or they'll try to act like the rebate means anything to their bottom line.

The rebate process is completely independent of the dealer. Bmwcca does it with bmwusa.

The regular E36 M3 was mid 30s so I think you added something like 15k to that.  There weren't many made so it is bound  be worth that price...eventually.  But not in 2016

 

40ish for the 04 M3 I think. Can't remember what the E39 M5 costs.  $60k?

post #21866 of 26360
I believe the base price for the e46 was mid 40s. No idea on the e39s. I would guess low 70s.
post #21867 of 26360
My optioned up 330xi had a sticker of 42k in '03. Surely the M3 was approaching 50.

Thanks for the advice about the dealer.  Its much appreciated!  Since the Mrs. is the one who may be interested in a BMW in a year or so, she joined BMWCCA last night.

Cool cars, ridiculously priced, and really only suitable for a museum.  The minute someone starts driving them and putting normal mileage on them, the values will plummet into normal range.  Not to mention, if someone were going to drive them they will need some extra $$$$ for the 2 cars with under 500 miles (as they will need to have lots of rubber pieces, hoses, gaskets, etc. replaced from non use, unless replacing/servicing them is included in the price). I've been down the older car car low mileage road before.

Optioned up being the key words here. Base e46 m3 was around 46k based on Google Fu.

That sounds right. I wanted that car so much on an ED when I was in undergrad. I had a little eBay business and made audio amplifiers, but couldn't afford it. I optioned it pretty basically (6 speed, Interlaces Blue, some interior upgrades etc.) and it it came to about that much even with ED.
