Here's the deal..........<p>I've dreamed about owning an E30 silver M3 for years........<p>I found one last year, 1989 with 28K absolutely mint for $18,000........when I got to the guys house 4 hours away he sold it an hour before my arrival!!!<p>I found another one last week, 1989 with 66K absolutely mint for $16,700........<p>I'm having it checked out by a BMW Club mechanic and if he says it's OK I'm gonna buy it......<p>Like you all, I hate to overpay for anything but I'm afraid I won't find another nice silver M3.......<p>What do you all think? Thoughts, opinions? <p><p>

If you don't mind putting in work on your M3, I suggest buying a "not-so-mint" conditioned M3 for thousands less. I knew exactly what I was getting into when I bought my 88 w/77K miles for $7800, but figured $2000 for new paint, $1000 service, some TLC, and I have myself a mint M3 for just under 11K. I am in LA so there seems to be quite a few E30 M3's around, you may not have the availability where you are at. <p></i>

that blows. i saw an 89 m3 with 88k for $16k. i ended it up buying it and it was a wise investment. my advice, if you canfind a mint one- buy it. <br>

$16,700's a good price. It makes more sense to pay a 2-3k premium on a mint car than invest in an average car and dump '000s into it to bring it upto snuff. I guarantee that you'll spend at least 3x the premium you're about to pay in upgrading a less than pristine car and even then you won't have an "original". Go for it, right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<p>: <p></i>
