Thoughts on a purchase? 02 M3

I have been looking to purchase an M3 for along time now, and this offer came around. What do you guys think?

Its a 02 Convertible with 103k miles, very clean in and out and it seems to drive with no issues? How much live can it have left in it, and do you think Im up for some very expensive repairs in the future based on miles?

Basically Im trading for my car now...

That link points to an Acura RL....
He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth.

Yeah, what ^^^ said. But as the car goes, I say take it. The 2001 was the only year with a recall (rod bearing), so you won't have to worry about that. The S54 is one of the best engines I have ever known and will surely be a timeless classic. The e46 body is also destined for the same fate as the engine and there are so many little mods you can do to it to really make it stand out. The convertible is a great ride; you get the performance of the M3 while having the option to drop the top. The mileage doesn't look to bad. I have a friend who's owned his since he took delivery and has 135ish thousand miles with no major problems. I haven't seen any pictures, but if it looks good and all the papers and service history is there, go for it. Long live the e46 M3!!
Stop putting stuff like painted reflectors and premium package in your signature. You're embarrassing.

I'm seeing a link to an RL as well.

Do a search on You should be bound to find something on there.

This is a heavily modded M3. So much so that it looks like an Acura RL.
