  • Current value of '98 M3?

    Hey Guys - I'm starting to think about selling my M3. I love the car, but maybe it's time for someone else to be it's caretaker. I bought it from the original owner in 2011 with around 111k miles and it's now sitting at 123k miles. So I've only added 12k miles over 9 years. It's a 98.5 Estoril / Black 5sp Coupe. It's stock except a Stromung exhaust and zhp shift knob. I've slowly gone through it over the years and did most of the typical E36 items - new clutch, shift detents, headliner, cooling system, rebuilt shifter, RTABs, Rogue rear shock mounts, new OEM shocks all around, trans mounts, guibo, etc. No accidents, all vin tags present. I have both a set of refinished style 24's with Michelin Pilot Sports (less than 5k miles on them) and a set of refinished Contours on Sumitomo's (came on the car). Full records from day one, window sticker, all manuals, etc.

    Just wondering what you guys think the ballpark value of my car is these days? And if I do decide to list it, what's the best venue - BaT, mforum, FB, CL?

      Thanks - I missed that auction. Didn't know our cars were hitting those kind of numbers.

        BaT for sure, get a thorough detail, pay for a PPI and hire a professional (or amateur) photographer to take 100+ photos of the car inside, outside, undercarriage, engine bay etc.. If you do that, the car will sell itself for a premium on BaT.

            I would have said 18-23k with the info provided depending on where you are. Cars always seem to sell for less out east. Just don't try and sell on FB or 300 17 year olds will tell you their buddy got a "mint one" for $4500.

                Thanks for the ball park. I'm in the Boston suburbs. Not in a hurry to sell, but looks like BaT will be the way to go. And absolutely agree about FB.

                I was thinking it was worth about $15k so the feedback provided has been helpful.

                    If you don't "need" it gone, sit on it.

                          I came across this video not to long ago about e36 m3 values. It won't tell you the value of your car but there's excellent information.
