Default Another what's it worth thread (M3 CS)...

..but this one is genuine, I have no idea where to pitch it at..

It's an 05 M3 CS SMG in Carbon Black, Black leather and on 105K miles with full dealer / specialist service history, all manuals, etc. Never had any issues with the SMG (which I love btw!) and car is about as reliable as they come. No major issues in the 6 years I've owned it (a few sensors maybe).

Has been lightly modded, it's on BC coilovers, has a Gruppe M cold air induction and has the CSL rev matching software. All standard parts are available too if needed to convert it back to standard (but looks and goes so much better as it is). Whatever has been required has been carried out.

Any ideas what it may be worth? Thanks in advance..

Similar cars have been selling for 16-18k recently. What options does it have? Regardless of how some perceive the quality of the nav, bluetooth or harman kardon, they're desirable to a buyer.

What needs doing? Tyres, discs, pads? Do the alloys need a refurb? You've soon blown 1500 if your buying the proper parts and not cheap Chinese crap. If these things need replacing, then adjust the price accordingly, or get them sorted first.

The fact you've owned it for 6 years will appeal to many, provided maintenance has been kept up and to schedule.

Thanks for advice Matt, would you say 16-18 for an SMG too?

As far as I know, it's fully loaded (HK, Bluetooth, heated seats, Sat Nav etc). Tyres are good condition Michellin PS2's, alloys have recently been refurbed but a couple have some small marks from some curbing. It's been fully maintained and documented. Brakes have all been done fairly recently too, nothing needs doing atm (booked in to get it's o2 sensors replaced too).

16-18k for SMG. I would say that is ballpark. If it is pretty mint, 18k would be a good place to start if you aren't in a rush to sell.

Cheers buddy, will be in touch when I get round to putting it up for sale. Just need to get a couple of O2 sensors sorted first (booked in for early Oct) then it will be going up.

Not just saying this, but of all the cars I have owned I know this is one that I'll really miss (along with my old e21 that I never should have sold) But alas need to move on to pastures anew!
