E90/92 M3 Buying advice

Hello,
I am soon to be in the market for a new/used car, I am currently looking at E90/92 M3 or C63. I currently drive a 135i and would like to upgrade into something a little bigger and more practical (hence the 4 door options above). I am just asking for some buying tips from you guys as the 135i has prooven to have a few surprises along the way with ownership.
Are there any year models to avoid?
Known problems with DCT?
Known engine problems?
Recalls on any components?
I dont particulaly want to move to Mercedes as I like the BMW brand and their styling more. I have found that C63's before 2011 had head bolt issues so im not to keen to jump into anything before that.
Cheers
