I don't have any input on the price, but definitely remove "M3" from the title on the CL page. I know the description states that it's got the original motor, but calling it an "M3 Compact" implies that it's had an M3 motor swap.

7100 is ridiculous.

And Roadrash is right - putting "M3" in the title is a mistake. People who know BMWs will know that it's not an M3, and they'll think you're a scammer. People who don't know BMWs won't be impressed, because they won't know what it means.

thanks for the input, Ive corrected the title and the price is obo, I haven't really seen too many listings of such a clean example. Im sure I can find 318ti's for 800-2000 all day making my prize ridiculous. Appreciate any and all feedback.

Default Pricing

My experience with CL is that if the object is priced right, it will get a lot of responses very quickly. That said, doesn't mean your price is impossible. But you are asking pristine money and this car still needs several minor repairs that you listed. My thoughts are that for anywhere near that price, it would need to be 100% sorted. And since it is mainly the 318ti community that thinks they are "future" classics and worth 2x/3x or even 4x what kbb/nada would indicate, those are likely your best choice for possible buyers. Except that is a very small pool of people to draw from. And don't forget, for that price you could get an actual M3. So you have a lot of challenges in your way. Id suggest fixing all of the niggles and relisting. If you don't get interest or offers. be prepared to keep it or substantially less.

I don't think that it is too bad. I've seen some at this price point before. I am assuming you are not in a hurry to sell.

You're description could use some help for that kind of cash though. Could spend more time there. One owner? More maintenence records and maybe a colorful story or other entertainment. The whole M3 issue does muddy it up.

CL is a place where people oft put their pie in sky price. Cash in hand changes things. This feels like the case here.

sorry to poop in your thread. but where, when, what, how, why and who came up with this "niggle" term? that doesn't even make sense, what does it even mean?

ALSO, i am selling a 1999 Alpine White BMW 318ti M-tech Edition with 192k miles on it, for a mere $6,100. So your price point is correct! We should not accept less for these particularly rare 1999 models.

While the US definitions leans more towards a verb of being annoying, a wider British definition includes it as noun of a minor irritation, annoyance, ergo minor flaws with the car, which are clearly listed.

Shame we don't have a resource available to us at our fingertips where we can look things up.

i remember a long time ago, there was dogpile. i wish there was some sort of thing like that to look it up. i also felt like it was 318ti lingo and possibly racially devised. i wonder if i can still dogpile it.

and btw "look it up" is three words, bruh!

OK, let's please not further clutter the thread with off-topic chatter.

There's a car for sale here!
