One-owner 1997 BMW M3 Sedan

Search “E36 M3 Sedan” on this site and you’ll find plenty of articles where I wax nostalgic about my friend’s Estoril Blue dream machine, so I’ll keep the shoulda-woulda-coulda memories to myself. The bottom line is that the M3 sedan is hands-down the best looking model from the E36 generation. The 4-door proportions combined with the sharper M bodywork completely work, gracefully combining aggression and class, speed and subtlety. I tend to ignore automatics as the 5-speed is pure heaven, which is luckily how today’s clean one-owner example comes. Silver on white/grey is clean if a little subdued. With the E30 M3 getting even more press than usual, this is a bold reminder of what an amazing value the E36 M3 is.

There’s a little interior wear, while the stock wheels or some nice BBSs and removing the spoiler would make this much cleaner. The good bits are there with what appears to be a very well cared for E36, low mileage and one owner. $7,100 right now is an absolute steal, and just over half of what E36 M3s in this condition have gone for. Anything below $14k is a fair price for this M3, making me think I should join in the bidding!

    Well, it LOOKED like a clean E36, but our friends on facebook did some investigating, finding:

    It was run hard and put away wet, then someone cleaned it up real pretty like. Not the one-owner nicety I was hoping for, and probably not worth the price it’s at now. I now feel bad for the bidders.
