Shopping for an M3 4 Door Automatic

So I have been looking at some M3s and I am currently looking at the following:


I run a Carfax on it that looks as follows:


The car is a 97 M3 and it has 150K. The owner has had the car for only 1 month and arguments that insurance on 3 cars is too expensive and needs to get rid of a car. The price is definately good I think and I bet I could buy it for a bit less. Now much question is, am I crazy and should I run away or is it worth going to look at this? I don't want to buy a big problem. What should I look for? I am attaching a few more pictures the current owner sent to me.

Thank you,
