As my search for “the perfect” E46 M3 continues, this example popped on to my radar screen. Why? Well, for most intents and purposes, it’s “perfect”. With only 10,051 miles on the odometer, it’s one of the lowest mileage E46s anywhere. Condition is near perfect. It’s a 6-speed manual. It’s a coupe. These are all on the must-have list for what I’m considering; that brings us to color. On the inside is N5TT – Grey Nappa Leather. I’m still with you, as I don’t like the all-black interiors on these E46s. Outside is 405 – Imola Red II, a pleasingly blue-red shade that sets the car apart from the normal silvers and blacks that M3s all-too often appear in. Okay, Imola isn’t my favorite color, but when you’re talking about low-mileage 13 year old cars in basically new condition, it’s not as if there’s a huge pool to select from:

The low mileage Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 Limited Edition we featured last October is back up for sale, the seller having lowered the price by another $2,000. Not many of these Limited Edition W201s left in this condition, but how far will the seller have to go to find a buyer?

The low mileage E28 BMW M5 that Nate wrote up last week got me thinking again about what kind of cars would fill out my collection if I struck it rich. Certainly it would be an M5, but which one? As sharp as the original M5 is, I’m still distracted every time I come across an E39 M5 in my travels. Much like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this is the sports saloon that is just right for me. It straddles the line nicely between modern and classic, packs a punch with the V8/6-speed manual combination and has just the right amount of aggression in an almost perfect sized package. Apparently I’m not the only one who finds this car to be “just right” given the values we’ve seen for these Munich monsters.
Both E39 M5s we’ll look at today are 2003 examples, the first being this sinister looking black example for sale in Maryland with just under 30,000 miles on the clock.

After several relistings since I initially wrote it up back in May, this 350SLC is back up on the auction block. There was an claim that some of the 350SLC cars came badged as 450SLCs, making this car appear original, though I can’t find any proof of that – does anyone know better? Miles are very low, condition appears good and this would certainly be a fun package that would last – but the asking price is fairly steep at $19,000. What do you think this car is worth?
