    Just my opinion, would go for a CP, not cheap for the mileage and age, better cars to be had.

    Colours not an issue as SS2 is quite popular and looks superb with all the carbon bits.

    Personally though as above I’d push for a CP plus the sunroof and no carbon roof makes it a non-starter for me but that’s your call.

    It’s a lovely spec, colour is not a problem, it’s not a bad buy, but I think it is at the top end of pricing for a 2015 car.

    I would say priced right compared to what else is out there, carbon may not be BMW based on front splitter, but it has LED's and full leather.

    Colour was my first choice, never regretted SSII for a moment. Comp pack car would need to be newer, with full leather and LED's you are probably looking at £6k more on an F80.

    No carbon roof is a massive issue.

    Looks like it has everything you'd want. Including a carbon roof...confused by the comments above.

    Also SS2 is an awesome colour!

    Sorry. I thought the spec said sunroof.

    You don’t get a carbon roof if you spec the sunroof.

    I have been watching these for quite some time and this car is priced really well considering its mileage, age, spec and its from a dealer. This should be priced around 33k

    Prices for the M3 have held up better than the m4, but it seems a tad expensive.
    Drive both comp and standard car, not sure why everyone on here says the comp pack over standard car, the ride is incredibly hard and it feels like it's on after market coilovers the ride is that stiff.
    Maybe a comp pack on 19's would be ideal, but definitely drive both first

    Think the spec and photos are at odds, assuming it has no sunroof as per the pics.

    Thanks for the comments, the car does have a carbon roof so not sure why they put sunroof!

    Having read around quite a few reviews, it seems that nearly all motoring journalists have said that despite the ongoing chassis and damper tweeks since 2014, the competition pack handles hugely better and is the car the F80 M3 should have been from start.

    That has swung it for myself so I will go for a competition pack.

    I’ve had both the non Comp, the Comp and the CS.

    The non Comp feels a little more aggressive and raw but wants to chuck you in a bush when you’re to foot heavy.

    The Comp drives better but it is a little more refined and linear on the power delivery, not a bad thing, especially in the winter months and personally, the Comp seats are nicer unless you’re a big lad.

    The CS is the best, handling is mega, has all the trick bits but the communication is another level over the other two.

    Now, listen to the Comp owners on the forum and not the press.

    This is more to do with the year and software, not whether it's a standard car or comp.

    A 2014 car with software updates has a linear power delivery

    That makes them fun.

    So they took a fun car and made it boring to drive.
