: timing belt question 1998 M3

thinking of buying a 1998 M3 convertible, 40k miles, 2 owners, $19k

What major maintenance items are coming up that might influence the price?
It has new pads and disks, new battery, the top is in good shape, and the mechanism is good. very clean car.

specifically, when is the timing belt change, or is it a chain?
what else?
