04-06 M3 buying help

Well...the decision has been made...I'm looking for a cream-puff M3! This will be a weekend car and I hope to get many years out of it as a second vehicle.

I could definitely use some help/advice tho. Any things I should look for that have been known to be problems with this 04-06 year range? 6 speed vs SMG tranny? Any known maintenance problems? Any advice to help point me to a reliable and fun M3 will be greatly appreciated! Thank You!
