Exclamation Am I getting a good deal on this 1999 M3??

Hey guys,
I'd like some advice... I've been searching around trying to find a good price for a 1998-1999 e36 M3 convertible. I found one with bright red exterior, black interior (no vader seats, but power regular ones), 75k miles, 5 speed manual (really hard to find in verts), in great condition, and the carfax report was perfect.

Thanks ahead of time,
Matt

Don't know if thats a good deal or not. My friend just picked up a 95 coupe with 109,xxx for $8,500. I guess since that's newer and a convertible it could be reasonable.

For 75k miles and in really nice shape that's defenitely a fair price for a very cool car IMO. Congrats!

as a comparison, I got my '99 M3 w 84k miles w a ton of aftermarket mods (full suspension, wheels, stg 2 turbo system, much more) for 13.5k, BUT it needed some work.

Looks Super.

I would just use some Plast X on the headlights to finish it off.

oh... do you know if the vader seats can easily be put in? because i know on the e92/e93... the e93 seats are different because they have the seatbelts on them...
