I wouldn't have posted this if I didn't think it would be worthwhile to get some good discussion going on one of our collective favorite cars.
I emplore your help on this matter, gentlemen.
One of my best friends is considering purchasing a new vehicle. I have managed to get him *seriously* thinking about a used E46 M3. This guy is the most stingy dude you'll ever meet in your life, I swear. So if he's gonna drop 40 large on a used M3, he needs to be convinced.
The money isn't an issue, but like I said, he's stingy; so he's not gonna want to pay more than he has to. Also, he's never done a test drive nor even rode in a 330. We're working on a test drive soon. We found a few deals online for low mileage (under 10K) and the cars were under $40,000. Although those are rare compared with the ones costing roughly around 40 even or a little higher. The only real necessity is SMG... his wife will be driving this as well, and she can't drive a manual. He'd rather have a coupe, but I think he would consider a drop top for the right price, especially if it came with a hardtop.
Okay, basically I'm asking you guys to make a case for this car. I'll be forwarding him this thread once it gets a few responses. Besides, you know this is partly for my own benefit as well
because I'll get to participate in 333-hp M3 donuts on occassion.
Bring up whatever necessary, numbers and stats, personal opinions, pictures, anything!!! Just convince him to get the stinkin' car!!!
