Need your help guys pre purchase decision M3 Salvage

Im looking to buy an M3 E92 salvage 2010 and up to save a few $$ . for those who may not know this car will be for export so the salvage history wont be so much of an issue warranty wise "at least that's what i think". considering overseas the BMW warranty only covers the first 2 years and not the 4 years like what we have here in the us. and not to mention that maintenance is not included overseas, everything is out of pocket "which is lame". so i have to say that we are really spoiled here in the us. bottom line, i have located 2 salvaged cars so far and i need your help and input for putting me in the right direction for locating a recommended bmw specialist "mechanic /bodyshop" who can inspect the salvaged cars top to bottom for me and give me an estimate of parts cost to repair . a bodyshop/mechanic who can also do a great job fixing the car without breaking the bank.I need someone in Brooklyn preferably. any recommendations advice? also any recommendations for where i can get good deals on parts? websites maybe or junkyards?

Advice,
Don't buy an expensive salvaged car. Just buy a clean title.

Salvage ones always seem like a great deal on the outset. Prob comes down the road. Insurance is normally higher and resale value is 1/3-1/2.

I had the same problem when I decided to buy a salvage one
I also got a M3 and it didn't actually need lots of repairing, fortunately it wasn't too damaged, so I could save some money
Besides, the whole process is quite easy
Have a look

It depends on why it was junked and what you plan to use the car for.

Track car? Definitely worth a look.

Street car? Probably not worth it.
