December 14th Update: while preparing for Sports Car Saturday we noticed this BMW Z3 we originally featured on August 8th now has an even lower price of $4,700. We’ve updated the link and added the new pictures  based on updated information in the new post.  As we said back in the fall, we’re willing to bet $4,500 will take this car.  Good luck with the purchase!

Posted again last week is this Hellrot Red over Black Leather 1998 BMW Z3 1.9 5-Speed here on Craigslist in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey for $4,700 where based on the description, this may be a one-owner car.  Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool as a Guide, the private owner has his Z3 priced $700 higher than the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) value of $4,000. With a 172K highway miles traveled, the seller says he is slightly negotiable so it likely you can get this good looking car for $4,500.

The private seller reports that his Z3 comes with all receipts including $1,500 in recent unspecified work.  He also mentions that the 172K are mostly highway miles collected while commuting and that his Z3 needs nothing.  If this Z3 passes a good in-person inspection, you can get a very fun car that looks great for a target price of $5,000.  Good luck with the purchase!
