2017 M2 with 9k miles sells for $40.5k on BAT

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2017-bmw-m2-21/

I dunno why I was surprised to see it sell this low??? I suppose I thought it would at least fetch $50k???

Ok yeah another 5% for the BAT tax...but, still?

Thoughts?

You can thank BMW for the M2 Comp for making this one tank.

Before I decided to go a different direction, I was looking for M2s and lots are listed at $39-42k. Especially if you want alpine white or blue. Mineral Grey seems to be more expensive.

Agreed!

Definitely the high production numbers don't help either.

Pretty soon you should be able to pick one up in the mid to high 30's and then that may be an attractive price for DD 😁

I dunno. I was expecting it to be 135is+ but felt it was more like a fast 320i. Steering is light and numb and really didnít feel faster. It was a little smoother on the road and more confidence inspiring on a curve but didnít make me say, yeah I have to have it. Thatís the real reason I think they made the M2C. I think thatís the real M2 and BMW knew theyíd be able to sell a watered down M2 because ďbadgingĒ. I donít think itís really any better than an M240i, but the bodywork definitely looks nicer. It is a beautiful car.

I've been following the prices and most with under 10K miles list for $45K-$47K. A 2017 with 3K miles went for $46.5K last week.

This is a phenomenal price, and if not an outlier, bad for sellers/good for buyers.

I still think the M2 will have its day later in the future. Cars are going to pot, automated, more fluff-laden, auto-stopping, auto driving, automatic only. Volvo decreasing top speed to 112, everything having bigger and bigger screens blocking your view. Pretty soon you will drive with a nintendo joystick and no windshield just a giant LED display in front of you that can see outside or play movies in self-driving mode. Audi, no more manuals and no more Euro Delivery. The market has spoken. People don't give a hoot about the stuff that many of grew up loving. That is why you are seeing insane prices for cars that give you an experience you can't get anymore. Even E36s are going up in price because even thought they were not as good as the other ones, in comparison to the stuff coming out today, they give an experience you can't get anymore.

So yes, the M2 is to the E36 M3 as the 1M is to the E46. While not as special, in the not too distant future, will have following. Especially the manual ones.

The Great Nachobi has spoken!

Don't buy cars as investments unless they're cool, rare, and interesting.
