Is this too good to be true?

Hi,
I am new here. Recently started hunting for an M3.
Found this ad locally:

HTML Code:
http://classifieds.castanet.net/showproduct.php/product/1033943/cat/30
Phoenix Gold with black interior, SMG automanual (padel shifting), 89,000 kms, AM/FM Stereo, Air Conditioning, Alloy Wheels, Anti-Theft, CD Player, Cassette Player, Driver Side Airbag, Dual Airbag, Fog Lights, Intermittent Wipers, Keyless Entry, Navigation System, Power Mirrors, Power Seat, Power Steering, Power Windows, Rear Defroster, Side Impact Airbag, Heated Seats, Leather Interior, Power Locks, Traction Control, Cruise Control, Heated Mirrors, Telescoping Steering Wheel, Stability Control, Premium and/or Oversized Wheels

Remember, this is in Canada, so prices should be quite a bit higher than in the US.

I smell something fishy.
Accident? Salvage title?
Please chime in.
Thanks!

Try to get the VIN and run a carfax or equivalent. And demand receipts for all work done.

The price does not sound way out of line. Cassette deck?? That would be "strange". Premium/oversized wheels? It looks like standard 19s. It does not sound that they know much about M3s and are making the ad as long/attractive as possible. I think you would do the normal due diligence when buying a used car and enjoy. I still miss mine.
