24k Original Miles, $31.9k buy-it-now, current bid 25k w/ 8 days left. Beautiful red over black. Very few left with this kind of mileage. I featured an e30 M3 w/ 10k miles a year ago that was in the same category and price range.

There are a couple of things that bother me about this particular example though: Spotty leather treatment/wear, the tacky pin striping, and the floor mats. I mean really, for a car of this price range, couldn’t you have sprung for a full detail and a $200 set of mats? A real inspection is required for this kind of cash, but that goes without saying for a premium price like this.
But what really bothers me is how high these premiums have become for low mileage, but not show quality, e30 M3 examples. It’s a legendary car with fantastic pedigree and an icon of it’s time. But I’d have to say that $32k buys a wealth of options that would be of better value. Yep, I said it — and I love e30 M3’s.
So for the next week, I’m going to fill the page with sports cars for sale I would rather have for $32k. I’ll include a few variations on the theme, but all will really be cars I’d rather have for the money. I’m going to loosen the mileage allowance a bit to 50k miles, but I think that’s reasonable considering the condition of this particular e30 m3 — many 50k mileage cars show better in my opinion.
Do you have a car in mind that you’d rather have? Post a comment up (or 2 or 3) with a link!
