Looking for E92 M3

I am actively looking for a used e92 M3. I know sometimes people know if some good intel or deals that I am not aware of. I am searching on the M3 forum and also online and around the area. Since this is a big investment, I am going to be picky.

-Looking for a black color. Jerez black most likely.
-Under $50k.
-Don\'t care about DCT or Manual. Leaning toward DCT so that the gf can drive it also.
-Don\'t care about the interior color. Prefer black.
-Hoping to find one without Navi. I don\'t like iDrive.

My three main concern is color, price, and miliage, in that order. I do like the interlagos blue but it is so similar to my current color.

If you have any leads, please let me know. Thank you in advance.

If I find the car I want, I will remove the mods from my car and sell it. Looking at a few other options including the Boss 302 and the Camaro SS.

Red stands out way too much. In baltimore, its like a sign to say "rob me". I am leaning towards manual but we will see.

Havent driven a manual in over 5 years. But I am leaning towards it.

partially agree
but only difference is when i am paying this much for a car
i get it exactly the way i want it, not to suit the area i'm living in
i'm from the "you only live once" school of thought"
but good luck!

Believe it or not
First time I saw Melbourne red, I hated it
It was an overcast day and it looked like a dark red, which I despise
Next time I saw it, it was a sunny day, And I fell in love with it
And eventually purchased it

I still remember where and when I saw that red one
It was on Herndon parkway, and it was a MR E93 with black interior and it had the top down
Gorgeous !

Pretty sure your current car screams "rob me", so whats the difference lol. Wouldnt be much different with an m3, regardless of color!

It is winter time, I figured sport cars are a bit cheaper as everyone wants a SUV for the upcoming winter.

It is 3 miles to work, I think I can manage it.

You guys bring up good point, MR or Montego Blue, both stand out. But I want a black M3. It's a choice preference and I doubt I'll buy any other color besides black.

This doesnt make any sense!!!!!
I have never heard of anyone picking a color based on you "GETTING ROBBED." If someone is going to rob you then they will rob you. A red car wont get you robbed any faster than a black or blue car.
