WTB blue M3 or ZHP coupe

I posted this in the Classified section but since I live in PA, thought I'd ask here ... looking for E46 M3 coupe or 330Ci with ZHP, must be MT (no SMG), must be blue exterior, prefer tan/natural/cinnamon interior but gray might be OK, under 100k mi, few or no mod's. Any leads appreciated. I've been scouring the usual places. Thanks.

Thanks ... a possibility

Thanks Saxual, I found this one on my search, but frankly -- hate the black wheels. I suppose I could consider it and change the wheels if I buy. Would also prefer a tan interior but that seems impossible to find in an M3 (found one with cinnamon, which I like, but price was too high).

Price on this one seems about right to me, what do you think? Do you happen to know anything about this car? Mileage and one-owner sounds good.

THANKS for the lead, I really appreciate your response.

Rear ended in California

Oops, just checked Carfax, this car was rear-ended in California in 2009. Accident report says "hit another car" -- uh, so it was backing up? Maybe that's not a deal-breaker, obviously it wasn't totalled or it would have a salvage title, bit still some cause for concern. I guess an inspection is in order?

idk what the current pricing on a M3 is ... Frankly imo all these cars, the pricing varies all across the board which makes it hard. It depends on the mileage, condition of the car, and which packages are on them. You are gonna have to do a lot of research and find the best one to fit your needs. I would find a price range you want to spend for a M3 or a 330ci ZHP and go with that. Make sure you check the car out before you buy.

Yeah I saw that it was in an accident. idk The history on this car. Remember you can haggle the price. Since those rims aren't original to the car, maybe you can haggle down the price When I searched for my car, I was on cars.com every day. In my area Northern VA and Maryland have more stock. Also Penn has a lot of Bimmers. So you are in a good area.


You can do searches on cars.com and on bmw site

good luck

Only want manual

Thanks Maddogz but the SMG rules it out for me. That's an eye-catching blue! Good luck with your sale, thanks for responding.

Thanks Eric. I've ruled this one out, prior damage, gray interior, dislike the wheels, and now your info ...
