I am very interested in buying a 2002 M3 Convertible. I was hoping to get some advice from those that know this car. It's in excellent shape, has 59k miles on it. The current owner is the 2nd owner that is selling it to start his own business and needs the $$. It's white on red with a black soft top. He has done all the manufactures suggested maintenance.
I was hoping someone could direct me in what questions I should ask. As I'm new to the BMW family and am excited to become a member. Are there any quirks I should be aware of? Or places on the car that are trouble spots that I need to ask about.
He said he needs $16K was asking $18k ive talked him down. He's throwing in 4 new snow tires/rims with the deal. It's the manual with SMG
Any info/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

You will know instinctively if it has been looked after. In general, it is only cars that are thrashed by a previous owner that have any real issues. There are exceptions of course as with any car...
Currently in the driveway :

2012 F10 535i M-Sport Carbon Black
2006 520d Touring Montego Blue Metallic
2004 E46 M3 Carbon Black Hard Top Vert
2002 E46 330i M-Sport Titanium Silver Just sold !!
