Here is a link to it:http://www.sandiabmw.com/preowned/details.php?v_id=507

It costs $22,879, and I will finace it for 60 months at 8-9% apr.

It has only 22k miles, and it already has a Dinan cold air intake on it.

The only thing that might stop me from getting it is my credit application. But my mom said she will co-sign, and her credit is at about 550-600. Not an amazing score but it should still be enough to get approved.

So everybody cross thier fingers and wish me luck!
that's great buddy! i'm so happy for you. the 99' m3 happens to be one of favorite cars, especialy if they're modified. speaking of modified, do you plan on doing anything to it? if you have any extra $, i would recommend overriding that governor with an AEM EMS or something. i think it's only like $1600 to get one installed. congrats again.

I have a few questions:

1. Are you going to college, or furthering your education in some other way?

2. Have you seen this car?

3. Ever considered getting a 2001 330Ci? They look better, are just as quick, and you could find one for a similar price or cheaper with the same or less miles. example

4. Ever considered a Corvette?


I see where your coming from but heres the thing: Where I work now I make $1600 a month guarenteed, plus bonuses which usually take me up to about 3k a month. I am going to be paying 500 a month for the car and about 375 for insurance, then with gas and any other random car involved stuff im expecting to be paying about a grand a month on it. And seing as how I don't have any other bills, like rent, I will be well within my means. as for your questions

1.Yes I am going to college, but with scholarships and the fact that Im starting out on a community college to get my basic classes out of the way and then transfer to a 4 year college latrer, Im only going to pay about 500 a semester.

2.Yes I spent about 3 hours at the dealership today

3.Yeah, I like the 330ci's but I am a much bigger fan of the E36 3 series. Plus, hell the M3 is much cooler

4.No, not really, I am not that into them, I mean they're fast and cool, but not my style.

Would that be 375 every six months for the insurance?

Well, I guess between getting it now and getting it when you have a mortgage and three kids, this is the better option Good luck!

No, it would be about 350 per month. I know...it's painful.
As for upgrades, it already has a dinan intak, I was looking to get an ecu next, but I will have to shop around for a while.

Not to be your Mommy, but just make sure you have a back up plan for making the payments, in case your lose your job, etc. Else they'll take that car from you so fast, you won't even know what hit ya

So, basically, you deal with pissed off customers all day. Sounds like fun!

I really don't envy you. Although, if the pay's good....

Hey, I've probably cussed you out before! I really do hate those people. So, how many months can I get for free if I threaten to cancel?? Will you go up to six months?

Honestly, we get paid more if we don't give out free months. So we don't like to do it.

Seriously? Everytime I've threatened to cancel, that's the first thing they do is offer me like 2 free months. Must be newbies. That is pretty nice pay too considering you are only 18!
