'05 M3, what is it worth?

I'm going to look at a 2005 M3 coupe. It's jet black w black leather, one owner, 60k miles, no accidents pretty loaded, non navi, blue tooth, heated/power seats etc. almm maintenance done on time, radiator, water pump and thermostat recently changed. Not sure about the sub frame but will check it. Car basically needs nothing. What do you guys this car should go for or what is it worth? Private party sale. Thanks for your input.

An honest price probably 25-27k since its a one owner.

I think a car like that is worth keeping.

Is it a manual or smg? I noticed the manuals were going for a premium vs smg cars when I just bought mine, and also since it is a coupe. I would use KBB for a reference, and use private party sale, or act as if you were getting a trade in value to see what the low end value is and try to negotiate from there. If condition is good, and it is a manual I would pay a premium myself.

Depends why you are changing cars i guess. If you like e46 better for sure do it and have extra money for repairs. If its because money is lacking in your pocket then still get e46 cause the longer you keep your car the more it will depreciate.

Ask why the radiator was replaced so early. Normally you don't need to replace it until 100k miles and that's being some what safe.
