ummm, thats a little low but it also could possibly depend on where you live. I recomend you search on autotrader.com. Here is a search.... Click!
I did that on a search for across the us so that will bring you some average prices. Search up your area code also.

might look for a nice 95 m3. it should have under 100,000 mi. tuning is a breeze with that model year.

Get a nice '95 like timsev said. They have the obd1 software wich provides better gains for mods. They are only a 3.0 as apposed to the '96-'99's 3.2, but if you plan to mod you will get alot better gains out of the 95. You should be able to find a pretty decent one for the price you want. If you can try and find one that has had the water pump replaced with a metal propeller. Good luck
