My Ride: 2004 330i Manual
Thinking about buying this 330i ZHP and I need help...

So I'm an E46 noob currently driving a Mini and I'm looking to buy and I found this listing:

The carfax.
http://www.carfax.com/VehicleHistory...#DetailSection

Its got everything I want. 330i, manual, blue, zhp.

I'm worried about a few things. The mileage is starting to get up there but the carfax shows its been regularly maintained and checked by the dealership. The carfax doesn't really list the specifics though (Cooling system replacement, VANOS, Control Arm Bushings...). Would a good PPI assure me that the typical problems have been taken care of?

Also, the exterior looks a little rough, namely the front bumper looks like its been curbed. The dealership says they could fix it if I put money down on it. Thoughts on what you see?

Lastly, its a 3 1/2 hour drive from me. So what do you E46 pros think, is it worth the drive to see?_a_
