Lastly, you are getting to where warranty is expiring with some 07 cars so take care!

Happy hunting and good luck with your purchase!
I definitely agree! Watch out for the ex-driver training M3s as they would have had a hard life. I certainly hammered the one I had! We even had a driver who had never driven manual before - that tranny got a bit of a workout!
