Re: Financing a 1999 M3

Your best bet is to talk to local credit union. Be prepare that most lenders will refuse to finance car that is 10+ years old. You may end up putting it on personal loan instead.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Try a credit union. We financed a 98 Ford Expedition last year and got a decent rate with a credit union. It's a 30 month loan.

Re: Financing a 1999 M3

Im having a hard time finding dealers with the car i want...

 

My friend owns the exact car i want Black/Black 1993 M3 with lowish miles in MINT condition...he rides his motorcylce almost exclusively now and said he would sell it for $8500 to me if was interested...

 

Is there any suggestions for getting a loan for a private party transaction or is it only likely to be approved through a dealership? Do banks like Wells Fargo even do private party loans, especially for older cars?

 

My scores are in the Mid 600's but i have about 50-60% utilization which would certainly be paid down to at least 30% or so before i applied for anything...

 

I have about 3 years without any late payments and have aquired good new lines of credit since then (AMEX GREEN, CHASE FREEDOM, BARCLAYS, etc)....

 

 

$1200 $1250 $4250 NPSL $5300 $1350 $3000

$6050 $5000 $10500 $2416 $6500 $3000
