I think that I found my new baby...
Well I think that I finally found my new/used ///M3. It's a 1995 US version Alpine white/black with about 60,000 miles. From appearance and the first drive it's in perfect condition. I'm taking it into my mechanic this morning for a full once-over. Besides the usual wear and tear stuff is there anything that I should specifically ask him to look at? I have all of the service records, and know about some of the major problem areas like the subframe mounts, radiator, water pump, etc... Is there anything else that I should look out for? I'm also planning to have a leakdown test done... just in case...
Alpine white wasn't my first choice (in fact I usually don't like white cars), but the more that I looked at the car, the more I liked it. Please tell me that I'm not making a mistake!
