I did a ton of research and honestly, even with those issues looming in the back of your mind, a good example of this car is truly worth owning.
yes don't sweat the RB, it is a 1% occurence. That said oil analysis has saved no one. Any proven correlation between visual wear of RB and broken engines is inexistant. This lack of any proof from cause to effect is a fact. In fact there have been failures at mileage so low that the RBs had no wear in them which is to say worn RB's are not the cause of engine failures. Don't bother with oil analysis pure waste of time and money.

The car looks super clean

Just went from a f30 2016 328i to a fully stock e90 2008 M3 myself
Both 6 speed
Had a e46 2001 325i before
The m3 is just on a different level in every way possible

I agree. The M3 feels like it was built by a different car company.
