Newbie Needs Advice

While I have owned many BMWs over the years I have never owned an M car but now have a chance to purchase a very nice '88 M3 from a collector. Not knowing much about this particular model I need some advice on what I should be aware of in terms of problem areas. I also would like some advice on whether this model requires extensive maintenance as I would like to drive the car on a regular basis to local club events, shows, etc. I will NOT be tracking the car or abusing it. Thanks very much. Feel free to send me PM or email. If anyone has a pre-purchase checklist I would be most grateful. Thanks.
