I'm planning to go look at a '98 4-door 5-speed M3. What should I be looking for? It has about 50,000 miles on it.

Thanks.

take a look at the person you are buying it from! if they are young take it to the shop for sure to get it looked at, they drove it hard! take it to the shop anyways always get a car like that checked out! Also just listen for any weird noises, and if it doesnt take off and isnt realy fast dont buy it! its an m3 its supposed to be something is wrong with it!
