    Inevitably as time goes by the number of low mileage and good condition cars is reduced leading to a strengthening of prices being achieved for those remaining but for your more typical E36 there are still a lot left which will hold the general price level down for at least another 5 years I suspect.

    How many left shows +800 Evos still in existence but assuming a similar attrition rate for the M3's and M3 coupe's registered in q4 1996 thru to q4 1999 then there are probably another c1000 on top of the evo number still on the road in the British Iles.

    This is many times the number of E30 M3's that were built and means that although the E36 will become less common I would suggest it is many years away from being anything more than a liability which is fun to drive unless you have an exceptional example which is kept off the road- and what is the point of that!

    Agreed. There are probably 10 times more E36 M3s than E30 M3s left. That is probably why they are worth 10 times more. This is a reflection of the rarity .

    Sure someone said there were more Escort Cosworths left than E36 Evo's which does make them pretty rare. I still think they're daft cheap and the comment below is bang on............:thumbsup:

    'Ok..£10k for a modern car you can use everyday, do long distances and has style and reliability.
    Depreciation proof if you look after it compared to a new BMW.
    Even if you lose 2k after two years ... Not a big problem for the quality of car and capability you are buying

    Get a late e36 coupe manual and it's better than money in the bank'

    Only going to go up!

    One at Sytner Wakefield £24.850

    Cosmos Black, tan leather.

    These are definitely on the way up.
    Bulletproof if maintained.
    The c..p ones are scrapped or council'd up

    If I had space I would buy a couple and sell in 3-4 years time
