That is fcuken cheap. I'd look at it for sure, and i'd definitely get a reputable place to do a PPI. Sounds too good to be true.

I noticed this afternoon doing my own search that there are quite a few M3s in the sub 40k segment now, I think that's too cheap. The E36 M3s keep their value very well, pristine examples are still sitting around the late 20s to early 30ks. Quite incredible actually.

Also weren't those wheels on the earlier E46 M3s? I thought 03+ got 19" standard. Would like some insight into that please somebody!

Asking and getting are two different things.

If something seems to good to be true, it usually is. If the car has been hanging around for a long time, then there's a reason why it hasn't sold yet. Even still, definitely worth checking out cos it is cheap! Good luck!

It has a sunroof, and the seats were special order on the update.

Try the mobile number. Beware there are many many MANY fakes on Carsales. I experienced at least 3 a week when searching for my car. Speaking to the owner at least gets you past that stage.

VIN checks out and it really is a 2006 M3. Surprised to see it with 18s and cloth seats though.

Probably had hectic rims before it was in the accident and he wanted to source everything cheaply?
