Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.
First and foremost as Brettski said, get a Carfax of the vehicle your looking at and if serious always always always get a mechanical pre purchase inspection done.
You provided ads for a Coupe and a Sedan which are totally different. The choice of Coupe or Sedan is totally yours. However I am The4DoorWhore so I only ever buy Sedans. If your used to the 4 doors of the Maxima I would stick with the sedan. The one you posted looks to be in really good shape inside and out. It is something I would go an look at (however I dont like silver). The M54 engine inside the E46 is very durable and robust and 80k is nothing for these engines. I have 262,000k on my M52 engine and its still going strong. As with any car the maintence history is important so make sure you ask for that. If the seller cant provide it then I would be learly.
One nice feature with the E46 is all of the vehicles information is stored in the key. If they owner claims it has been dealer serviced its whole life then you can take the key to the dealer and scan it, pulling up the entire vehicle service history.
Begin as you would with any prospective car, examine out the assistance and incident record, if it creates it's previous factor, pay a BMW professional store to examine it out more thoroughly, it could be the best cash you invest especially if you don't end up purchasing the car because of some actual issue/s.
