02' M3 SMG 75k Miles 12,500$ good price?

Hey guys I'm new to the forums.


I'm wondering if 12,500$ is a good price for an 02' well kept M3 SMG.


It's Blue on black interior, the interior is so well kept it basically looks brand new. The exterior is also in mint condition. (75k Miles)


What's your insight on this deal, how do you advise me?
What should I look out for?


Many thanks!,

Absolutely hate these threads. There's NO WAY to tell if the car is a good deal with no information. How much these cars are worth is tied closely with their service history. Get that, get a PPI, then you can tell if it's a good deal.

Pre-Purchase Inspection. Price seems low, all else equal. Definitely get a PPI.

Understandable, will most definitely take it to my mechanic before purchasing.

Thanks

Well, what do they say? Read them then come back. Just because there are records doesn't mean you're good to go - you have to read them and know what was done and what needs to be.
