    Used 1997 E36 M3

    Hi everyone,

    I am a newbie to the forums and looking to get your wisdom on this M3. The M3 in question has 130k miles on it (More miles will be added since it is his DD) and asking for $10,300obo. What are the main issues with this MMY? Is the mileage ok? What services would I need to take care of next?
    I will be adding the link to the ad down below so everyone can see it.

    I appreciate everyone's time and input

    Best thing to do is take it to a shop that is familiar with these cars for a PPI. Mileage means very little without service history. 130 is nothing for a well cared for one. On the other hand one with 130k miles of drifting and burnouts without proper maintenance is probably nearing the end of its life.

    Also, since this is a USDM M3, you should post is the regular M3 forum. You will get more traffic.
