Wow, want to say scam but you can usually tell with CL ads. This one sounds legit.

Sure looks like a good deal. That is a "luxury" model, but it appears to have the standard M3 grille--- although it's hard to tell from the pics. If it has the standard grille, there's a chance it's been smacked in the front---but the radiator core support looks straight, so maybe that is the correct grille.

Sure seems like a nice car for a very nice price.

Blue book on a '95 M3 is $1800-4000.

As I've said for years, blue book on enthusiast cars is so far off it's useless.

That's a good price for this car. White/dove is probably not the most desirable color combo, which might be why it hasn't sold yet.

This should probably be in the Open Classifieds section

I should have gotten one, but now I'm old enough to consider a Vette.

I am also, but I got a "twin" (FR-S) as my mid-life crisis car. Red? Yep. Sporty? Yep and yet an inexpensive Toyoburu so one of the most practical mid-life crises...

Maybe I need a "Nerd" sticker instead of a "Dork"?

Man, you guys would get a kick out of the garage-queen Estoril Blue E36 M3 that one of my relatives has.

Speaking of garage queens...how about an e30 euro 323i with 247km on the odometer? http://www.ruylclassics.nl/bmw16_eng.htm

Me too. Probably my favorite color on an M car.

If it's been to a federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison, it might be $4k. An $1800 E36M3 might have to be in flames at the time of sale in order to fetch that price.

+3, I still love the color after 14 years of Estoril Blue M Roadster ownership. I was about to buy an Estoril Blue M3/4/5 (e36 M3 sedan w/ manual) two years ago and somebody else snatched it out from under me while negotiating a price with the dealer.

Agreed, I looked at a beat-to-E36 M3 M3/4/5 that the guy wound up getting $4500 for.

No mention of miles so it must have a lot of them.

Estoril is a great blue. The only blue I like better is Le Mans blue on the E39 M5.

I actually like Technoviolet, but the color I really would want is the early Dakar yellow without the clear coat.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Over 200k, I'll wager.

I actually love the white, and the gray would be much better than black in the summer.

My e39 M5 was Lemans over caramel. Simply gorgeous.
