Looking at a Z3

Hi

I have a chance to get a 2001 Z3 3.0 stick The body is great , the interior is good . It has 197,000 miles on it . Drives out ok ,,, needs a spiral cartridge and has an abs light on .

I can get it for a good price .

I guess my question would be are there any comon failures or quirks I should look for .

Thanks for your time .

I used that link above and couldn't get to it. I think that it's the same one that I used:

It as very helpful for me to look for items to scrutinize a month or so ago. I love my new ride, drove it back from North Carolina just before Thanksgiving.
