DTO: Sraight Clown Shooter: 1999 BMW M Coupe

Tip and words from DT Contributor Andy L.  Here is an example of an awesome car that is getting rarer
by the day, especially with mileage this low. Clean retail book for this
car is $13000, but I don’t think it applies to this car.  If you want
to be one of the last remaining clown shoe jockeys, you are going to pay
a premium.  Find this 1999 BMW M Coupe offered for $28,000 in Lincoln, NE via craigslist. The DTO (Daily Turismo Omologato) is a rare or interesting example of a
DT-friendly classic or performance vehicle, but priced somewhere above
the self imposed DT cap of $20k.

Sure, we can claim that structural rigidity is the only
reason we like this over its ragtop equivalent.  If you are a dude,
however, you might just prefer it because it looks a little more like a
dude’s car with a hard top. While the shape is polarizing, there is no
doubt that the size, layout, and drivetrain together are what
enthusiasts look for. 

While you can pick from a lot of faster cars for the $29K
ask, you will not have an easy time replacing the driving experience. 
For those who want to know what a refined, M3 engine with a flat torque
curve will do in a tiny car, here is the answer.  And, yes, this bread
van can do donuts.
