I'm not necessarily saying this car is overpriced, but rather that ZHP's are quite a bargain given what you get.

The roughly $10k + M3 premium seems to remain constant across the mileage spectrum, but the actual prices of the cars depend critically on mileage and condition. You CAN pay $22k for a ZHP, but it's going to be mint, and with around 20k miles or less; an M3 with similar mileage in the same condition, especially with ZCP, would almost certainly be at least $32k.

GLWS, but mileage means a lot.


yeah but m3 > zhp any day of the week.

You want an m for a reason and no zhp will cut it.

Bro, you might want to lower that price a bit if you want to sell it. I saw a similar car, with the same options without the mods but 36xxx miles going for 25k and this was at a BMW dealer. Good luck.

Price reduced!

Thanks for the bump. The car is just not what I wanted. Don doesn't even know I'm selling it.... However the car has grown on me quite a bit since getting it. Might have to opt for a daily driver and a keep this in the garage....

It's the economy that's driving the prices down because people aren't dumping money into cars right now... it's just the way the times are...

The fact that the seller is offering a beautiful car for sale after less than a month of ownership suggests that M3's are not the be all and end all for all drivers.

There are a lot of BMW's that are neither boring, economical grocery getters nor e46 M3's.

Sorry for the hijack.
In my 6 years of fanatics I've never heard that side of the argument.

Props to you for laying it out like that!

<--- Still would love an M3 though ,

Hilarious. You should have seen me when I bought the car and had to wait to have it shipped from Texas. I felt like a 5 year old on Christmas Eve. Got the car, man it is fun and certainly gets the looks. Stereo in this car is amazing as well. Then drove around with my 2 kids in the backseat they love it!...but what a task to put them in and out and their feet are smashed if anyone is sitting up front. I have a minivan, but often take 1 child with me in my car places. Then I have a bad knee and getting out of drivers door on my bad left knee started up some old knee pain....and so on and so on... Thinking about keeping this for track days and fun....and getting an old Acura for daily driving....

Seriously. Why doesn't anyone even want this car. The crappy bushings have been replaced. The worn out coilovers have been replaced by Bilsteins, new rear tires, good front tires, new front brakes. I just want to buy my M5! Somebody buy this thing!

I gave up on selling my M3 SMG. I'm like you in that I wanted a M5 or E90 M3 sedan. I tried for 9 months, IMO if you want the car to sell push it out to Carmax or trade a hit on trading it in. SMG cars have a stigma of problems that buyers don't want to deal with, that is a fact! Its either going to take lots of time or you are going to have to take a hit ($$$).

Shipping from Texas was $795. The car really is growing on me and I'm getting used to the "non luxury" of the car.

I still am driving way too fast in town with it, which is another reason I don't want to keep this long. I am bound to get in trouble. Hard to control myself.

2006+ M5 actually is quite normal feeling and quiet when M mode is not engaged. It really to me is the best of both worlds.

Think I'm going to wait on the M5 though when the twin turbo's drop in price.
