JayR is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hello all, I need some input. I am buying my first BMW. It is a Black 2001 X5 3.0. It has the sport pkg. and the activity pkg. Asking price is 35,599. I am in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. My questions are: 1. is this price good. 2. how do i find a list of what the defect codes mean.

Also the milage is at 42,274. Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.


I must apologize. I posted this in the wrong forum, I was referiing to the SUV not the incredibly fast M3 and M5. If a mod could please move this to the appropiate forum I would greatly appreciate it. I can't find the delete option.

Once again sorry

With mostly standard options KBB said that is it $31,950. If you give me a list of options on the car I can run it again or you can just do it at www.KBB.com. Without looking at KBB it doesn't look like that great of a price. Good Luck and welcome to the forum...

My guess is that the next generation M3 isn't even sure to be manufactured, it is still at a prototype stage.

That's odd though,that the company is not sure. I would think, there would be a main goal in appearance in the making for production, with its main outlook like two doors motor and such. Im sure we all want to know it only helps in a sense of security of a following. Someone must know good solid information. Anyone?

This may be the wrong forum, but what the hell..why not

The next gen M3 (coded e90) will be a FOUR DOOR CAR ONLY!!!!!!!

When you said M3's are 2 door always, that is incorrect because many people have the 4 door versions inbetween 1992-1999 (surprisingly i dont know which years had 4 door versions).

Back on your question....4 door only!!!!! But how could this be? what happened to the ultimate coupe, you ask! WHY OH WHY WOULD BMW DO THIS!!! Well bud, ill tell yah, BMW is having a change of heart and i deciding to move back into their old (somewhat unknown) numbering system. Where all coupes will generally be an even number, and 4 doors will be odd numbered...examples

8 series = even - coupe
old 6 series = even = coupe
new 6 series = even = coupe

and so on....

that system didnt necesarily last long, but the fact that BMW is attemptign to brign back soem Bimmer heritage makes me swell up with tears :lol:

Anywho, now your saying, those basterds got rid of the coupe M3, they must DIE!!! Well, liek i said....even = coupe odd = 4-door

so the m3 e90 HAS to be a four door. This is where BMW invents the M4...pretty much your M3 car but a coupe...just like you wanted

Porsche Unveiled a 450HP N/A to match their current turbo without the turbos & a 575HP Twin Turbo for 2005 or 2006, I forget. probably even in the same body, But who knows. I will try to find the press release. I saw it on my friends computer the other day
