PPI/Service history/Rod Bearing Recall-help?

Hi all,

I'm thinking of buying a 2001 m3 convertible as long as it passes a PPI. Any chance someone could hook me up with some carfax/service history/recall history on it? I'd like to get as much info as I can before I drop the dough on taking it to a dealer.

VIN: wbsbr93441ex20593

If no one can help, thanks anyway, or if you have suggestions on another site that might be able to, I'd appreciate it.

2001 M3 Safety Recall

There was a safety related recall for the 2001 M3 for the following build months:
2001-10-04 thru 2001-07- 31, involving 2,438 cars for faulting parking brake linkage and cable. Make sure that got fixed if this car was within the recall parameter. If the car is being sold through a dealer, it would be illegal for them to sell a car that had not been "remedied" under a NHTSA safety recall.

Mein Auto: which day is this?
IIRC, 2001 may have the oil lubrication and rod bearing recalls?
