Sell me those apex wheels.

If I have to part things out, then sure. Trying to sell everything as a package first.

Ok, sounds good. Good luck

Such a great car and properly built.

Why are you upgrading this is better?!

i dont understand why this would be posted here rather than sold to one of the carvana/vrooms of the world. do m3s really have any equity?

Good question. I guess I enjoy switching cars every 3 years. The lease price of the new G80 as configured was honestly within $100/month of the M5 Comp I’ll be obtaining in February. I’ll miss the manual for sure!

Not having the greatest experience with Vroom on a '18 X3 lease buyout at the moment. Carvana had a disclaimer about being inside the 60 day lease maturity window, which I am. Algo’s offer was fair.

Yes, there’s at least 10K in equity for private party sale.

I thought I’d never see the day where BMW would have equity at the lease end but here it is. Although honestly if I was to spend $65k with tax on this I’d just go new.

I’m not exactly sold on the looks of the new G80. Manual means you’re not getting the comp. Comps start at 69.9 and lease like :poop:

Ah, assumed (incorrectly) that you were grabbing the new M3. This makes better sense and I salute you.

Hmmmm trading a BMW m3 for a G80 Hyundai???

0 in 10 M3 owners would make such a tradeoff

G80 in this case is the chassis designation for the new bmw m3, not the Hyundai sedan.

Nice car! Feels so rare to see a manual M3. Manual sedans are certainly an endanged species these days.

Just a thought, have you considered Bring a Trailer for a car like this? You may have an easier time getting your target price there (wider audience, more of an enthusiast base).

I assume you already have it listed on the BMW forums, also a good place to get the targeted buyer base.

I assume SHIFT/Carvana/Vroom/ALGo came up short as they don’t price for enthusiast cars as generously as middle-market type cars.

Good luck with sale.

Based on what I see from them on Instagram, they are always looking for m3s to buy. They seem to go through them quickly.

I wasn’t able to find any comps on Bring a Trailer but thanks for the suggestion. Yes, currently advertising on Bimmerpost, FB, and BMW CCA as well.

Right on the money with Carvana, Vroom, and Algo regarding enthusiast cars. Although, I was able to pocket $4K on my wife’s '18 X3 lease return.

Here’s a few that land near your price point:
