I would like an M3,325,328,330,335.

Transmission:6 speed only(no exceptions)
that means no automatics or SMGs


Body Style:Coupe-must have sunroof
or
Convertible

Colors:any combination is fine(except no red or any version of red/imola or cinnamon)
Miles:must be less than 80K
Im located in SOCAL but i will drive to Vegas or Arizona.

Try Car Gurus. They compile ads from several major sources on one site. Just tell what you want and it'll show you. That's how I found mine. GL

Good news is there are probably more E46 for sale here in socal, that anywhere in the country. You want to have some money left for maintenance, or upgrades, so what is your spending limit?

Yes I went through them already all the way back to Feb of
2012 when I started hitting a lot of solds
The ones left were either sedans or automatics,
Pre e46 or out of my budget or had supppppper high miles
And nothing against a high mileage car it's just I just got out of that
My last car had 177k before we traded it in.or they are on the other side if the Mississippi

You should be able to do quite well in that price range.
You are also running into one of the strangest phenomena in searching for cars. When you are not in a position to buy a car, you find sweet examples wherever you turn. And they are unusually cheap too.
Once you have money, and are ready to buy, suddenly there is nothing but junk available.
This is where you have to be patient, and not make too many compromises just to get a car under you. Take your time, work the sources every other day, and it will show up.
