Not that I recommend buying a car with no paper trail, I just found a pretty unique M3 in my area and got a good deal on it to boot!
+1 i didnt have much paperwork on mine either. the only real problem was at 91K miles with the vanos. but other than that its been running perfect, just do preventative maintenance. little by little start changing stuff out, belts, fluids, bushings, tabs.
