What issues and problems should I be looking for???????? Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
I used to own one - they are great cars. I sold mine with 125k miles on it and it was still in good shape with no issues. Check out the E46 M3 forums for a lot more info - this forum is primarily for the E9x. There is an E46 forum on this site but traffic is very low there.

Also, there is no "auto" per se. Its SMG II, and you should read up on that before buying so you know what you are getting into.

Good luck.
