Martin,

Can you please be more specific? What's your price range?

I'm looking for 95 to 99 e36 M3 5spd, lower mileage ( meaning avg miles/yr i.e 10 to 12k miles /yr), stock preferred but mods are ok. price would be 8k to 11k

lmk.

thanks!

You need to define "lower mileage." Your price range would maybe get you one with 100K on it and/or one with serious flaws in its condition.

Agreed. A really premo low mileage, bone stock e36 M3 would probably be closer to 13-17K.

So what did you end up spending? Mileage?

I've suddenly found myself in the market for one as well. Looking for the same thing, avg miles, clean, mostly stock. Let me know if you hear of anyone selling.

Thanks,
Craig

You will absolutely love owning this car. I have had my 1995 M3 (It is identical to yours in color, interior and wheels) for years and I still feel like a kid on Christmas morning everytime I drive it. It is the perfect machine for going for a drive for the sake of driving! My M3 is still bone stock and closing in on double your mileage. Proper maintenance utilizing old school BMW maintenance intervals will do wonders for your cars longevity. Enjoy!

I have one as well (96 M3 58K - bone stock). It is an absolute hoot to drive. Lots of low end torque.

update: passed MD inspection, except for the tints. I need to have the state police say the tint is fine. problem is the state police office in gaithersburg isn't doing inspections while construction is going on. hopefully it gets done next week.
