Help with buying a used 95 M3

Ok there is an M3 for sale with 81k miles on it for 15945 that I am hoping to buy but I wanted to ask you guys about anythings to look for before making the purchase. I heard something about the back end being replaced if anyone knows about that it would be great. I drove the car and it felt great it looks to be in good condition. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

service history is the key, make sure it has a BMW stamped one and it's up to date with all it's oil services and Inspections. If the receipts/bills are with it describing whats been done, then mores the better.
Body should still be in good shape, no rust should be present, basically check over as per a 'normal' car, but concentrate on the engine and suspension.
Rear suspension top mounts go, so I trust these and possibly the shocks have been replaced.

That is a pretty good forum, especially for the US cars.
Still service history is the key, as well as condition of the overall car.
