Its Been to Long..Advice Needed!

Hello All,
I was a frequent Member of this site years ago when i had my GG 08 GSR.
Been threw a few cars since and its time for me to pickup a new ride.... i was pretty much set on a pre owned m235i or a civic type r , until i found a 15 RR Final edition @ a dealer local to me. It has 39 miles on it and has been sitting, i assume for a while .
I loved my X, Never gave me any issues, Modded it pretty well too. its not very refined, but i think thats why i liked it so much. The MSRP is $38895.00 , There asking 44k. Should i bother trying to beat them up or just go for one of the other cars im looking at. Anyone have any issues with their 15'?
Thanks for any info and opinions you guys can offer,

Cheers!

Negotiate over $50k when all said and done, lowball especially if itís been sitting there; theyíll want it off the lot.

Also depends on what style your going for, a car you already know about vs a new car which means new problems.

To each as own though canít beat the performance of our platform thatís why I havenít traded or sold mine, couldnít found a equal for the money.

I have a 15 gsr with no problems other than no recaros and a noisy oil pump which I have read is common.

I’m getting old, brother. So I’m voting for the comfort and smoothness of the BMW M235.

So went to look at the Evo today, sales manager wont budge... 44k firm.. Looks like m235 is where im going. He keeps saying "its number 1 " like i give a shit, its only worth the extra 6kk over sticker if someone is willing to pay for it. Its already been sitting there for 2 years is this guy nuts? I hate car salesmen, Then he got offended when i said im going to shop his price hahahaha

It's #1 of 1600? It's rally red right? Last I heard it was sold at an auction for 46k. Surprised to find it at a dealership with virtually no mileage.

Huh, really? I'd be surprised it's not in someone's car collection to be honest.

I love my car, but if I didn't love it so much I think there are better options nowadays. It's a 10 year old platform already that didn't see that many changes over its lifetime. Cars came a long way since then.
