    Newbie here. I'd like to buy a fairly low mileage ZHP convertible - either black or gray with black interior. I've found a few but seem a bit high. Does anyone have any thoughts? I've read that bimmersrus has elevated pricing. I realize that the automatic convertibles are less coveted so would think we would see lower prices. Thanks in advance.

    Are you in the market for an auto? Currently there is a nice example listed on bring a trailer and is mystic blue and black leather with a 6spd.

    I.m looking for an AT, black interior, black or grey exterior. I'm flexible but at this stage of my life, the auto is top on the list.

    General question. Are ZHP auto convertibles with lower miles selling for 3-4K above KBB?

    What's the KBB range?

    There is a bit of a premium for lower mileage cars, like the 50,000-60,000 ones posted above. That's around 4,000 miles per year, which is not too common. Going to 100,000 miles will get a few or several thousand off the price. I'm not sure what difference KBB is showing between the two.

    KBB is not a good metric for private party sale price. Even though you can option out an E46 with the Performance Package, it is several grand below what is probably more accurate. My car, with 78k miles, manual transmission, in pretty good condition, good maintenance, etc is only worth $7-9k according to them. But I am confident it would sell for a lot more, in the $12k+ range easy.

    Thanks. That's helpful. So the few I listed in my 1st post are probably slightly elevated (coming from a dealer) as opposed to grossly elevated. That's good to know. Now the question remains, do I have the patience to wait for one to pop up for sale by a private owner.....

    Only time will tell. I used to be way more on top of what cars were going for before I started grad school, but I've lost touch in those two years. From what I can tell, the low mileage ones are really going up in value, some might argue stupidly so.

    So I found a somewhat local ZHP convertible (graphite metallic with black interior). It's high mileage (168K) but is pretty clean. PPI found some common issues like front strut leaking, air/oil separator and drain hoses leaking, needed control arm bushings and a minor leak from the transmission selector. Seller plans to take care of all these items regardless of whether I purchase or not. As I see prices of the lower mileage (and some higher mileage ones) cars continue to rise, I'm curious as to what others think what the value is of a higher mileage car such as this? He's asking 9800 and is negotiable. I think that's high. Am I wrong?

    I think that depends on maintenance history and the overall condition of the interior/exterior
