1997 BMW M3 sedan

It seems that when I’m looking around at E36 M3 sedans, a lot of them are equipped with automatic transmissions. Every time I spot a clean one with a 5 speed, it catches my eye. Like this one:

1997 BMW M3 sedan on Philadelphia Craigslist

The seller states:

1997 BMW M3 Sedan. 112,000 miles Silver exterior with Black leather interior.
Excellent condition 4 door with 5 speed transmission. Equipped with luxury package wood interior, power everything – seats with heat, windows, locks, cruise, on board computer and roof. The only options it does not have is the cd changer and alarm. M3 is all stock, absolutely no modifications have ever been done.

I bought this M3 more than 5 yrs ago when it had 92,000 miles on it from a family member. No issues with it at all, everything works perfectly. Well serviced and taken care of, oil changes and services regularly and extremely reliable. Immaculate paint and near perfect interior. I am asking $9.9k or reasonable offers – prices similar to those for sale in the area but in much better shape than what I have seen around. I am selling because I need to get an SUV, I just don’t drive it enough.

While any type of M car is a risk with over 100k miles, the seller seems rather honest in the description. Buying an SUV to replace this fine machine seems like heresy, however. This is a lot of car for $9,900, especially given that it was, in my opinion, one of the finest examples of a sport sedan ever to emerge from
Munich.
