Buying a high mileage M3 - Need a PPI

Found a high mileage, but very well maintained M3 locally. I would like to get a PPI done, can you recommend any shops downtown or south of the city to bring the car this week?

Car is in great shape but for peace of mind, I wanted to get this done.

Thanks

Find a dealership to do it. They'll find everything wrong with that car because they want to fix it for you.

You're probably right, as long as their honest.

But I'm also looking for a good independent mechanic to service this car if I wind up buying it.

If you're buying a high mileage M3, I would recommend you pick up a good set of tools and start reading if you don't want to go broke fixing that car.
