Hawaiian M3s - would you buy one?

I've been looking for an E92 Comp Pkg M3 and came across TWO that were purchased in Hawaii under some 'corporate' ownership with several owners.

My questions to the M3 gurus is, would you buy one of these cars or have you heard of any issues with these multiple owner cars coming out of Hawaii?

...I came across a coupe, comp pkg myself (Hawaii) and was wondering the same thing. Are you concerned they were driven hard and not cared for?....or simply the elements (weather)...?

more of why both coupes I found had so many owners. One had 3 the other had 5 and these were 2011 and 2012. something seems off...

...I see. If you're concerned with the turnover, maybe getting one with time left on the original warranty or a CPO will give you some level of protection and peace of mind.

I lived in Hawaii for years. My ///M just sat in the garage and I drove my ratty Honda everywhere. Chances are good that the car was on O'ahu and there's no place to drive hard. The weather is not great for cars but it can't do that much damage in only a few years.
