Nice ride. Makes me think I should have kept my 2000 BMW 525i. She was flawless and never had any problems. Had to sell her though to cover going back to school. I then bought a Trans Am, that at the time was running fine. .... not so much anymore. Anyway, glws. Someone is gonna love that car.

Oh no....he's doomed now! lol

Rather funny that people do that when they put pics up of a car or bike, yet they drive around every day with no thought about the plates showing.

Stunt4life, I shared this over on the Grassroots Motorsports forum to help spread the word. Very clean car, and good luck with the sale.
While certainly not a tarmac burner for sure, good condition e30 M3's have a much greater demand on the used car market than a '95 non-LTW, puny 4 cylinder and all. Viewed by many as a pure driver's car, the handling, driving dynamics and raw feel of the e30 M3 far outweigh the deficit in the power department in their eyes. The '95 LTW is like a stripped version of the regular M3, but costs more and only came in white. Sure you get the cool flag in ///M colors on the front and rear corners and forged lightweight wheels along with supposedly hand picked engines, but the performance was virtually the same as any other M3 of the time. Amazing how charging more for less worked in this case.

And regarding your statement saying that clean low mileage cars will appreciate with time, surely that rings true in certain cases, but do you really think a 20 year old '95 M3 with 16,xxx miles is anywhere near worth damn near close to it's asking price when new? True worth, definitely not. But, if someone is willing to pay that much then subjectively its worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it.

+1... Seems absolutely pointless to me. I could understand the reasoning behind it if the car in question is being videoed or photographed engaging in conduct non-conducive to law abiding, but not for vehicles just being shown off or selling on the internet.
