quote from seller’s listing:

This two owner E30 M3 has been in our stable for a year while we have been perfecting it cosmetically and mechanically as a side project. This car is approaching true Concours show winning condition now, as we started with an extremely well taken care of example that had been driven easily by its two female owners, and it shows in how it looks and how it drives. I recently did a touring rally in this car and it was just a joy to drive and enjoy. We updated this car with its major Inspection II service and went over it with a fine toothed comb. We then cosmetically restored it with some PDR and minor touch-up, and a whole list of odds and ends. The result is a very close to 100% factory original and is also a model from the last year of production for the E30 M3, It has all the original VIN stickers and aside from a new front bumper cover and some hood paint in 1991 it is as it left Germany.

Quite honestly, if this car was any nicer I’m not sure you would want to drive it, and that would be a shame.

You know me, I’m a sucker for low miles. Make sure the maintenance has been tended to with a thorough pre-purchase inspection by a qualified BMW technician. This car is already over $17k, reserve not met. With 3 days to go, make your predictions!

(update 4.10.09 – now $19.1k, reserve not met, 2 days to go)

The 38k mile BMW e30 M3 on eBay is finally No Reserve!

BMW e30 M3 for sale in Henna Red 38k miles on eBay

I’ve referred to this super low miles, Henna Red e30 M3 that’s listed on eBay a couple times. But it never met reserve, reaching as high as $23,900. With a no reserve listing, do you think it will generate enough excitement to eclipse the previous high bid, or will the crap economy rear it’s head with a sub-20k closing? Leave a comment with your best estimate of where this auction will end!

1988 BMW M3 w/ 38k Miles Back on eBay

I had originally posted this low miles e30 M3 on my other blog in August earlier this year. It’s back on eBay and has already exceeded the highest bid of $20,100 (no sale) from the last auction. Take a look at this 1988 BMW M3 for sale on eBayMotors:

quote from eBayMotors listing:

THIS IS REAL 38,000 MILES 1988 M3 ,GARAGE KEPT, RECENTLY SPENT ABOUT 10K ON ALL BMW BRAKES,TUNE UP,A/C, ECT. RUNS AND DRIVE LIKE NEW, NEVER WRECKED,CAR IS IN GREAT CONDITION

In my previous post, I guessed that the winning bid would be around $25k. Considering brand new M cars are apparently immune to the sales slump, do you think this legendary M car will find a buyer this time?

2000 BMW e39 M5 For Sale with only 4k Miles!

Let me start by saying, I am not a fan of the most recent 5 series platform. The e60 is just plain ugly compared to the e39. I have no doubt the V10 featuring 500hp is nothing short of breathtaking, but when you’re prepared to put down nearly $90k for a brand new one, but not in love with the shape, what options are you left with? How about saving $40k and buying a nearly new M5 of the previous generation?

2000 BMW M5 For Sale on eBayMotors:

quote from seller’s listing:

The ultimate expression of the ultimate driving machine. There isn’t a magazine on the planet that didn’t fall head over heels when the E39 debuted in 1998. the combination of power, handling, comfort, braking and overall drivability led to review after review naming the M5 the best car in the world at any price and a modern classic. Finding examples with well over 100,000 miles is commonplace; finding one with 3,059 miles like this one is a lot tougher. Who would own such a machine and not use it? BMW themselves, that’s who—the car sat garaged in the Greer, SC facility and was used by executives who flew over from Germany. It’s one of the lowest mileage M5’s on the planet, it’s perfect and it’s ready to roll.

We aren’t kidding about the critical acclaim. Here’s a sampling of quotes:

The 2000 BMW M5 is the king of all performance sedans, a classic for the ages.

Edmunds.com

“The fastest production sedan on the planet.”

Road and Track, March 2000

“… The M5 is as close to faultless as any car I’ve driven. Set the bar as high as you like, this thing will clear it. Unbelievable!

Jeff Karr – Motor Trend

“… The best and most consistently enjoyable sport sedan the world has ever known.”

Motor Trend, March 2000

“On the track, the M5 is hunkered down and grips the asphalt with confidence and composure. The instant-on electronic throttle response and the precise manual gearbox will bring a smile to any driver.”

Road and Track, March 2000

“For people who love cars, the M5 is quite simply the most desirable sedan in the world at any price. What more can we say?”
Car and Driver, March 2000

“Without sounding like a broken record, this is the one car to beat, faster, sharper, not to mention safer, and more luxurious then anything on the market, the best sports sedan in the world then, the best sports sedan now, and maybe even forever.”
Motor Week

“The new BMW M5 is simply the best.”
European Car, June 2000

There are no blemishes anywhere on the exterior of the car, just as you’d expect a garaged 2,700 mile car to appear. Tire tread is better than 90% and the wheels are perfect. There are no needs, no problems and no shortcomings as you do a walk around. The car is perfect.

The same goes for the interior. The leather seats are immaculate with virtually no evidence of wear, and they’re the only parts that show any use at all. The stereo is loud and crisp, the multifunction display in the dash, the gauges, all lights and all switchgear work exactly as new.

I’m just saying, if my lotto ticked gets punched this week, I’d take this over the newest version. If I remain mortal without the winnings, I might still think a well looked after used e39 M5 might be in the cards considering they now hover in the low 20’s for asking price.

1988 BMW e28 M5 For Sale with only 41k Miles!

I saw this very low miles and original example on Roadfly today. Every time I see a really nice one, I envision how nice my e28 535i would be with a stick and nearly 300hp!

Take a look at this 1988 BMW M5 For Sale on Roadfly:

quote from seller’s listing:

VERY LOW MILES. Beautiful example of the Rare 1988 E28 M5. Only a small number were built and only a small number remain. You are not likely to find a better example of this M5. Excellent Condition. Original. Unmodified. Gloss Black. Excellent Interior. Factory BBS Wheels. Yokohama AVS tires. Custom M5 logo mats.

In the U.S., the e28 M5 really is more rare than the e30 M3. Can you imagine what a 44k mile e30 M3 would have for an asking?!

A Pair of Low Mileage Porsche 968’s For Sale

Both these cars have under 40k miles, both are on the east coast, and both are looking really tasty for fans of the 924/944/968 series – of which you can include me amongst! First up is this 1993 Porsche 968 for sale on eBayMotors finished in Amazon Green Metallic for $18k buy-it-now:

quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:

This car has been kept in a climate controlled enviroment all of its life. Original sticker was $45,764.79. Lots of options.

N7N7 Amazon Green Metallic $823.00
TT Partial Leather Seat Classic Grey $682.00
XDU Rim Cap with Porsche Crest $208.00
220 Limited slip Differential $913.00
490 Hi-Fi Sound PKG/10 speaker/amp $561.00
692 CD Changer “CD-C1 $1,245.00

He has the original factory 16″ rims (with no tires) that are in perfect condition that are include with the car. The tries only have about 1000 miles on them. The rims pictured are 18”.

And the second is this 1993 red on black 968 in Florida for $21.5 buy-it-now:

quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:

The first owner kept everything from new; including:

Meticulous maintenance records
Original Factory Window Sticker ($43,140)
All Original Books/Manuals/Pamphlets/Warranty cards
Press KIT that includes loads of Color Brochures and Dealer Sales info
Full COLOR dealer sales brochures.
COLOR Magazine Articles from dealer
Original TEMP TAG from new.
Letter from President of PORSCHE USA ( signed )
Original Porsche 968 Technical Data and specification brochure.
And Much more Misc. other documents.

Second owner picked it up and brought it to Georgia and had it for 3-4 years and kept it as nice as the first owner. It now resides here in Bonita Springs Florida and can be view at any time.

Mechanically its runs out strong with no problems. AC blows hard and cold and everything works.

Personally, I’m liking the color combo on the first one better, and it’s over three grand cheaper. I always put a premium on low mileage examples because in my mind it’s less road time and thus less opportunity for accidents and poor maintenance. But even if a PPI revealed that it needed some work, wouldn’t the three grand saved budget nicely to make for a nearly perfect example?

Euro Spec 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo For Sale

Wow, there’s not much not to like on this great looking car. Low miles, gray over tan, beautiful upgrade rims, and rare European specification import make this car highly desirable to the Porsche 951 enthusiast. Here’s a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo For Sale on eBaymotors:

quote from seller’s eBaymotors listing:

You are bidding on a RARE and UNIQUE 944 Turbo (aka 951). I have owned a number of 951’s over the years, but this one is by far the most unique. This CarFax certified 951 has low mileage (63,239), comes in the rare color combination of Graphite Metallic over Light Grey and has a binder of receipts. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind 951 with pedigree, read on!!!

This 951 has only had 2 owners. The first owner was a physician who purchased the car in Europe and brought it to the United States. The VIN is WP0ZZZ95ZGN101375. This car is 1 of only 2,760 944 Turbos produced for the rest of the world (ROW) in 1986!!! By comparison, there were about 3 times as many US spec 944 Turbos produced in 1986. The European versions had the highly desirable streamlined rear bumper and front fenders with marker lights in them (see photos). The most interesting feature on this car is the instrument cluster. The warning lights are written in German!!!

This car comes with the original European Delivery documents which consist of a Porsche Touring Pass and another book which appears to be a travel guide and is written entirely in German. I have included a photo of both of these items in their original plastic case. They are in pristine condition. The car also comes with the original First Aid kit (never used) which is also written in German.

This car was specially ordered from the factory with a single sport seat which is confirmed by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The car has the following option codes: C00 (Eurospec emissions), M74 (touring package), 197 (heavy duty alternator and higher amperage battery), 261 (passenger mirror – electric, heated and adjustable), 418 (protective side moldings), 431 (4 spoke leather sport steering wheel), 533 (alarm system), 573 (air conditioning) and 650 (removable sunroof).

This 951 was well maintained and comes with the original books, including the stamped service book, and a binder of receipts. All of the important maintenance and updates have been performed and documented.

There’s a little wear detailed in the ad, but none of which detracts that much from what, in my mind, is a really cool and rare example. I’ll update after the auction ends. 3 days to go and currently reserve not met at $6100.

1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16v For Sale, only 50k miles!

How about this show winning 88 ‘rocco with only 50k miles that I spotted on VWVortex:

quote from seller’s listing:

I have had this up for sale before, figure I would see if anyone saw it at waterfest and may want to buy it.

Asking $9500. (with everything on the car)

BBS RG-F wheels
H&R coil overs
AutoTech Antisways
Neuspeed Strut brace
JL audio 12″ sub

At $10k, I think the seller is going to hold out for a fanatic. But when was the last time you saw a Scirocco of any year for sale that was this clean? You could eat out of that engine bay!

Black e28 BMW M5 For Sale with Only 44k Miles!

Here’s another beautiful e28 M5 for sale, and this one has only covered 44k miles!

1988 BMW e28 M5 For Sale on Roadfly

quote from seller’s listing on Roadfly:

This is an Excellent example of the legendary 1988 M5. Original, Unmodified, Unaltered. 41,000 miles. Excellent Condition inside and out. Zaino High Gloss Polish. Excellent Interior, well-nourished. Factory Recaro Seats, Custom Mats, Factory Alloy Wheels, Yokohama Tires.

So with the asking of $25k, has the e28 piggybacked the recent swing in values the e30 M3 now commands? And correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure there were a lot less e28 M5’s imported compared to the e30.
