In between, he worked in a variety of jobs, including a stint as a car salesman.

Valdes-Dapena also worked as a business reporter and science writer before joining Money magazine's Web site in 2000 as an editor for automotive and other consumer content. Since that time, he has moved to working exclusively on autos and is responsible for CNNMoney.com's and CNN.com's Autos sections.
I was never a car salesman, so I'm no expert -- but if there problems with the computer software now -- I can't imagine that many E9x cars (or any cars built with OBD II) are going to be running in 50 years. A gullwing Mercedes or a 2002 or Porsche 356, sure. No computers.

pick up mine on MONDAY at the performance center in Spartanburg, SC! I. CAN'T. WAIT. I would have loved an M3, but I had only so much $ in my budget. It's really nice to see the consolation prize it's getting its fair share of props.

Not hating. Just stating what is completely obvious to everyone (except CNN)

That's exactly what I was thinking this whole time reading this...but maybe we're wrong...

There was a Canadian here that took a purple 1994 M3 Sedan back to Canada with him just because he believes it will be a collectible...I convinced him of that when he was trying to sell it.....

This M3 is better than the 335is is better than the 335i is better than the 328i is really tiresome. If your talking strictly performance as a definition of "collectors car", unless you own something like a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, there's always something better.

Its a car with it's own nitch. Its a factory production moded out 335i. BMW gives you some sporty uniqueness to this car with factory installed blacked out kidney grills, mirror caps, window trimming, and exhaust caps. Also, BMW gives you the worked exhaust which sounds great (not for any proformance benefits...). Includes the m-sport dress kit, bmw proformance wheels, and blacked out cabin. It has the N54 engine which is in the Z4 sDrive35is... which gives you a whaaping 20 more horsepower over the 335i lol. In summary, its a unique car from the factory, its not a M3, and not everyone will have one. Is it a collectible...?

But what can I say I'm a little bias!
