View Full Version : Advice on buying a used M3

08-03-2011, 06:02 PM

I just joined the group today and posted a little bit about myself in the intro posting section. I am new to BMWs and I want to purchase a used M3. Is there any advice that you can give me? The one I am looking at right now is a certified used car with 60K miles on it. It has an SMG transmission and I want to use the car as a daily driver so I am concerned with buying a car with 60K miles. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I certainly appreciate any help.

Check out M3Forum.net You should be able to find all the information you are looking for. Look in the e46 section under the "sticky" section

60k miles is not a big deal provided it is reasonably well maintained. SMG is a downer as there is more to fail and it's somewhat awkward in traffic/between stop signs. (BTDT, have a 6spd E46 now.)
