No way dude... Thats a HORRIBLE DEAL... (can i have his phone number?, and contact information?)... I drive a 95 m3... it has 68,000 miles, and it is the best car i've ever owned... And they are reliable. 90,000 is absolutely NOTHING when it comes to bmw's. Many people here are up over 150,000.. I personally know a man who drives a 98 with 212,000... for 6 grand flat... i would say buy it... check it out, drive it around. Get the vin, and i will run a carfax for you. Is this your first car? Snap some pic's of the car.. email me back... ikderekik@hotmail.com... seriously... If you dont go through with it... Tell the guy I will buy it... Hope it helps.

Turn around and sell it for what it's worth if you get it. Unless it's mint and you decide you love it.

Agreed. A well-maintained '95 M3 should fetch a good deal more than $6k. Take the car to a reputable independent BMW shop/mechanic and have it thoroughly inspected.

Not always. My '98 was basically a garage queen with mostly highway miles on the clock. It was near mint condition with all service records, etc.

Carfax is a good starting point, but he should really take it to a reputable BMW mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection. It's cheap insurance.

just got a unforgettable tip from some guy forget who it was

on a higher mileage ///M make sure it has been maintained VERY well, records are a must....
when buying a high mileage m3 expect mucho mucho denero in costs of repairs... ///M parts are more and wear out faster (people drive ///M's harder and they are tuned for more performance vs life)

if you are serious about getting an ///M... a 90,000+ might be a bad idea... you would easily end up paying the same or more that you would of for a 50-60,000mi m3....

i guess this is true with all vehichles but none of you morons listen....
