My Ride: 2004 M3
All cars depreciate a lot. 2 years ago, a 2002 M3 with 100k+ kms was being advertised for $40k'ish. In my opinion, the M3s that will hold more value are ones that have unique/rare combos. Everyone seems to want a white manual. People don't seem to like the Phoenix Yellow. I'm sure people will pay a lot more for a white manual over a Phoenix Yellow SMG. In my research, it seems silver and carbon black are the 2 most common colours for an M3. Put them with an SMG and you have plenty to choose from. Condition of the car varies a lot too. The M3s advertised at the lower end of the scale I'd believe would be in a worse condition than those asking for more. I'm pretty sure the OP's linked car has a very worn interior e.g bolsters. It's still worth a check tho via a PPI.
