2006 M3 competition

Hi, I'm new to the BMW scene. I am in the market to buy a newer M3. I found a 2006 M3 with the competition package (blue w/black interior) with 42K. The car is extremely clean, has the SMG and comes with the balance of the factory warranty to 02/2010 (or 50K). The seller is asking $28K....any thoughts, advice to a novice or recommendations are greatly appreciated. Are there any particular things that I should take note of when inspecting an '06 M3???

Thanks.

You should take note that it is an 06 with competition package, SMG & warranty. Sounds like a good deal. Those Competitions package 06 M3's went for 58K-60K new. The price drop is drastic but since the new e9x M3's came out so has everything. The competition package comes with a lot of upgrades not availible for the regular M3, including a more direct steering rack, CSL style BMW distributed wheels, exclusive interlagos blue color, larger rotors + cross-drilled, alcantra steering wheel, more agressive DSC setup, interior aluminum trim, and some other stuff.

I quickly found this australian article on it. Looks to be pretty old. BMW M3 Competition Package: Another Winning Combination - AutoWeb News

Thanks for the input! I bought the M3 and love it so far! I'm looking forward to some drier weather to have some fun with it!

Thanks again for the response!
