    Well m3 CS’s are all 05/55/06/56 so marginal differences I think

    1&2 I’d say 20-25 depending on condition.
    3&4 15-17.

    Ultimately I’d say it all very much depends on right buyer and seller at the right time. Eg when I bought mine the first time round I maybe paid a k or so over but I wanted the car and there wasn’t another on the market similar at the time.
    Do you have your eye on some possibles?

    I remember seeing that advert a few months back when I rebought mine.

    Have you had much interest? I’d have said that was cheap for any manual CS a couple of years back.

    I had put it up for sale but not really wanting to sell it, so I wasn't fully committing to negotiations. There has been interest but just everyone wanting it for peanuts. Its already the cheapest manual CS thats for sale. I reckon it should be about 25K but I'm needing it gone now that I am back at University.

    Yeah for sure don’t let it go for nothing. Definitely much cheaper than any other manual.

    good luck with the sale and the uni. You’ll get another in the future I hope.

    My only criticism would be, and mean this as constructive, looking at it from a buyers perspective... When you have a rare car worth £20k+ why would you let rust appear and not sort it? I would shell out for a repair, then you can describe the car as ‘wanting for nothing’ and potential buyers also have nothing to use as a bargaining chip.

    A car wanting for nothing appeals to most buyers (I can look through things like that), the majority of owners like a faultless car. Bodywork scares some people. You could get that sorted for £500 odd quid and then I bet it would sell.

    I’d personally like to see all four matching tyres too - any reason why you didn’t put matching potenzas on the rear?! maybe it’s just me.

    lovely car though with the only gearbox to have, and best colour :thumbsup:

    I guess for prospective buyers most will view the CS as not offering much more than the standard M3, therefore they are difficult to price. Most cars are not selling at the moment anyway, it a buyers market that makes it harder.

    Agree mainly with this - except I love the smg running the CSL software. The car has to be almost immaculate for that price, in my honest opinion. You cant use 14years old as an excuse if you want top money.

    Couldn’t agree with this more. I really don’t understand the downer on SMG. I love mine. Just a little lift off between gears and hey presto.

    That’s an eagle eye you have there. I’d have never got that from those pics.

    CSL alloys, Quicker steering rack, bigger brakes(although not the best still), Alcantara Interior, M track mode and Interlagos Blue paint? Seems quite a bit of extra and people like rare stuff..

    Thanks a lot. I do realise that it should just be put right, but its cheap in comparison to ANY other manual CS right now, by several thousands. So its not like i'm asking for top money for a car that needs body work. But I totally agree that it would be easier to just get it sorted.

    Again agree with you there, but the rears needed changed twice before the fronts and after reading lots of reviews on the AS5's, I decided on them, so when the fronts need changes they will be changed to AS5's as they are outperforming PS4S's according to reviews.

    Its a nice car, just saying that most people will still look at that as not much for the money.

    Many will buy a standard M3 for £12k at 90kmiles with some nice mods if they are lucky or buy standard and add these. BBK, Royal Steering wheel refurb, M-Track mode coding (easy to do). Lots of people like the CSL reps, personally I wouldnt put on reps. Some people have changed the steering rack.
