I don't understand what all the fuzz is about, the car is in great condition and well taken care of. If you don't want to buy it for the price i lowered it to (29k) then too bad because i will not sell it for 25k. Thanks

Great condition and well taken care of? So are the 26321 other M3's for sale. Ask any forum member whether their car is in good condition or well taken care of. Everyone waxes, everyone changes oil, everyone does routine repairs.

91k doesn't qualify for pristine condition, no matter how spotless it is. It also doesn't sell for 29k.

Weren't you trading it in this week?

This is simply not true.
Some people will change their oil every 3-5k miles. Some people will let their dealer do it every 15k. This goes for other 'lifetime' fluids as well.

Some people will hand wash their cars and do it the right was so as not to have any extraneous swirls marks. Others will bring it to the $5 car wash and have the crap beaten out of their paint

Some cars don't get much passengers. Others will have dogs in the back.

Some people don't ever park their cars on streets. Others will park it wherever they can squeeze into (nice dings and scratches) Don't believe me? There's a red E46 M3 in the lot next to mine. Come by some time and check it out. Drives in the snow with his summer tires. He couldn't care less.

The list goes on.
Good luck with the sale.

Dealers use NADA only because the wholesale is lower then kbb and the retail is higher screw nada....kbb is pretty resonable most of the time

Don't waste peoples time telling them not to low-ball. No one will listen. It's everyones right to ask for X amount of money for their cars, and it's everyones right to offer Y amount of money for anothers car. Whether a sale is made is secondary.

hey there ummm spork, you're not bursting my bubble. call your car insurance company and ask them. i know i just did and to no surprise they told me they use NADA. also i just went to Miller's Imports on rt15 and asked the SA and he told me that he uses NADA. so as i said before... here in PA nobody uses KBB cause it's old and inaccurate.

I don't care what insurance companies use. For all it's worth, I hope they use the highest totalling blue book out there. Hell, I wish they'd use spork's bluebook and pay people 10k over what their car is actually worth.

I don't know who or what an SA is, but whatever he is, he lied to you. The only people who might have any type of paperback guides laying around are new car dealers who take a lot of cars on trade and throw paperback pricing at customers to keep their overhead low.

But hey, maybe the residents of PA have discovered their own supersmart NADA system that the rest of the country doesn't know about! Cause I'm sure you walked around polling half the PA residents on what kind of car pricing guide they use.
