I am almost to scared to buy this M3

Hello, first post.

story. I am looking to buy this 2002 bmw m3 (options and colors I love) but Ive never owned a bmw's (always lexus or infiniti) so I am worried this and esp. the 2002 (with the rod bearing recall)


1. How can I tell if the call has been to the dealership for the rod bearing recall? Can I call bmwUSA and give them the VIN to find this out? I am buying the car from a smaller luxo dealer that buys lease returns so I wouldnt believe them that has been fixed or checked out unless I see it on paper or hear it from someone at BMW. The add says "This car is under warranty up to 100K miles on the Engine" Does that mean the rod bearing recall has been already fixed?

2. How does this warranty work? (sorry this is my first time buying a used car with a warrenty)

3. the remaining factory warranty, how can I find out about this? What does that cover? I am not sure with what BWW does with their warrenty program. Does this cover the every 15k mile check up?

4. Any way to check if and when the car has had the every 15k mile check up?

5. thanks
