Sure- if you're ready to put as much, if not more, into it in repairs over the life of the car.
Think ahead.

Doesn't seem like a good purchase if there have been problems with it

lemon, $58k & 4 owners...sounds too high !!
I think you should post this in M3 forum.
I've read a post by a guy having a brand new e93 with roof making noise.
Dealership was not able never figure out the root cause.
But 4 owners in just 1-2 years is a red flag.
Is there any kind of explanation for this car being a lemon?

At what price would you go for it? I'm kinda curious on what kind of discount the OP could get on this kind of car. $3k? $10k?

This one is not "fully loaded" per say:
2011 M3 Coupe 9,000 Miles $49,991.00

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-M...ht_5351wt_1182

This one is a lot more loaded: (I would personally buy this one)
2011 M3 Coupe 12,000 Miles $58,800.00
-Competition Package
-BMW Perf. Spoiler and Splitters

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-M...t_14152wt_1182

The car that the OP posted is a straight rip off...

*** I would not pay more than $45k for OP's car*** Future problems are going to cost a ton and the resale value is going to be terrible.

thanks for looking, yah like i said id only own for the balance of the warranty if i could pick it up for a rellle cheap price such as 45 or less which is prob too low for them anyway the only convern would be the resale value ...

4 owners at 17k miles should be reason enough not purchase the car.

That's far too much money for a lemon vehicle that 4 owners passed up on after driving an avg. of 4K miles a piece…think about how miserable a car would have to be to say "enoughs enough" after 4K miles. Red flags all over the place. Not to mention M3s aren't rare at all, I bet you can find a dozen other ones locally that more or less fit what you want, and weren't lemon'd.

4 owners sounds absolutely ridiculous, I would email him and ask what the story behind all the owner is. If there isn't a logical explanation like it was in the name of my business but I needed to transfer it to myself or something along those lines I wouldn't touch the car.

Try to post this in M3 forum, there is a good change at least one of those four owners is a member here and must have vented out in the forum.
