how much are you will to spend ?
most of the used m3's I have seen are a couple years old, have like 20k miles and are in the $50-60K range.

I would feel more comfortable with a used 335i in the $35-40k range.... the problem is finding a white one with a manual tranny within 500 miles of me

Well if you do find one out-of-state, it's a good reason for a road trip.

I was thinking the same thing......

I love when people on the east coast start posting pics of their winter setup in the showroom forum...... then I go in there and post a regular pic of my car in "winter mode"......
