It's safe to assume that 99.9% of preowned M3's have (at best) been driven aggresively. Some will have been beat on. Whatever you do, make sure the original warranty from BMW is still intact. Otherwise, look elsewhere. You DO NOT want to get stuck with repair bills on an M3.

I'm probably the ideal seller since I don't buy my nice cars for status, only use them for trips (some family members still don't know I own an M3 after a year+ ), and I never push them or abuse them in any way. It's just a joy to drive this car, without having to drive it like a maniac. And the V8 soundtrack alone is worth the price of admission. But I understand folks like me are an ultraminority, so odds are you won't find such a car. So my strategy would be to find the one with the lowest mileage possible, and get it checked by a BMW dealer, although there's not much to check other than the drivetrain feeling healthy, as noted before. Good luck man.
