My Ride: '08 ZCP M3 | '03 R6
Buying a Non-CPO '08 M3: What specifically would you have inspected?

I've done a ton of lurking on the E92 M3 forums for "what preventative maintenance should you do? What breaks often? What needs to be replaced?" Etc... and I haven't found much.

Thank sweet baby jesus there isn't anything like the old M5 Vanos Units, which are prone to failure (not if, but when) repair for about $4,000 per side (2x).

It's a 2008, non-button iDrive system (which doesn't bother me one bit... I actually prefer it!) fully loaded.

Picture of an '08 older iDrive, w/o the buttons. (This isn't a picture of the car, just one I googled).

Technology, premium, cold weather, etc packages. 6 speed. ~50K on the clock.

Any recommendation for what to have looked at before I buy her?
