    Fairly priced considering color and miles.
    2000 Red over black
    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    I was thinking the same thing. Looks like a nice car. Didn’t dig into the details.

    That car would have fetched another $50k couple of years ago...

    It is interesting to see that prices are following the same trend in the US as in Europe. There is a significant number of z8s (about 32) currently for sale below €200,000 in the EU, including a stratus grey at only €178,888: https://tinyurl.com/vbgojub I even saw a silver one for sale at €160,000, which is a record price. I guess that the new 'low emission zones' in many European cities are deterring some buyers. As a potential buyer, I'm waiting to see if this trend continues.

    I watched through several ups and downs until 2011, which was the last big downmarket I think, when I bought my car, although my story is a bit different and I benefitted a lot from this board and the people on it. The auction companies are trying to put a good face on it, but admit that while fine examples of very rare cars will still be up, the rest of the market will be down this year. I don't watch it enough to know where Z8's fall, but my gut tells me that the world has been at an economic top for so long that 2021 might evidence real weakness, and there may be some Z8 sellers. Save some cash.

    It seems that the silver over black have really seen a decrease in price. Especially if over 15,000 miles.

    BMW built more Silver/Black's than any other color, and it is the one Mr. Bond drove. Other than individual colors, Stratus is the rarest exterior color, followed closely by Red and Topaz, but Silver/Crema-Black is the rarest combination. I have seen all the colors, and I swear the Silver has the thickest looking, most solid clear coat of them. From MacFly's listing:

    Silver // Black................................1,895
    Silver // Red-Black..........................1,262
    Silver // Crema..................................16
    Silver // Crema-Black...........................9
    Silver total....................................3,182

    Black // Black...................................667
    Black // Red-Black.............................342
    Black // Crema.................................229
    Black // Crema-Black.........................331
    Black // Individual interior.....................3
    Black total.....................................1,572

    Red // Black.....................................137
    Red // Red-Black................................77
    Red // Crema.....................................62
    Red // Crema-Black.............................15
    Red // Individual interior........................3
    Red total...........................................291

    Topaz // Black...................................135
    Topaz // Red-Black................................8
    Topaz // Crema..................................138
    Topaz // Crema-Black...........................37
    Topaz // Individual interior......................1
    Topaz total........................................319

    Stratus // Black..................................114
    Stratus // Red-Black.............................12
    Stratus // Crema..................................46
    Stratus // Crema-Black..........................23
    Stratus // Individual interior.....................1
    Stratus total.......................................196

    BMW Individual cars..............................124
    Individual 2-tone Stratus // Crema............11
    Individual 2-tone Black // Silver.................7
    Individual 2-tone Carbon Black // Silver.......1
    Individual total.....................................143
