Exclamation looking at a 1997 M3

So I have been doing a ton of research and waiting for a deal to come up. I found a 2 owner, clean car fax 2dr 1997 M3. I have read all the posts on what to look for and what are common issues, and I know an e36 M3 is going to be my next car! I am wondering if anyone lives in the Portland, Oregon area and knows a trust worthy mechanic who could do a PPI on the car. I live in Seattle so I can't take it to my mechanic so any info on mechanics would be quite appreciated !

I'd ask in the plain E36 section. I know at least one fester that would be able to help you in the Portland area.
