Picking up a M3.

I've been trolling for a bit, but finally created an account. I hope to be picking up a M3 within the next few months. I've been researching maintenance costs, common problems and pretty much trying to find out as much as I can before taking the plunge. I will definitely utilize the differential bushing replacement guide that I found on this site. (Thanks, thefoxkazan.)

I have come across an 03 with 88k miles on it (engine replaced by BMW at 40k miles because of the bearing shell issue) with a 6 speed manual. The guy is asking what I believe is a pretty good price, $17k. If I like what I see I could be a owner next week.

Right now I'm driving a 92 Cutlass Ciera S, which is a ballertastic ****-mobile. Any advice on my upcoming purchase is more than welcome.

I've been blowing up the search function for a bit now. I do my best not to ask questions that result in "search" answers.

I was considering waiting until February when it would be easier for me to afford the car, but I think I'm going to throw caution to the wind and go ahead and get it after my next two paychecks.
