Im buying a pre-owned 02 M3. It has 53000 miles on it. Im really excited about buying the car, buy I have heard rumors about issue's with the engine. What should I have done to it, or ask if it has been done? Please guide me on this car. Thanks!

While it probably has been complted, make sure the rid bearing recall was performed when you check service records. A BMW dealership can tell you if and when it was completed. Pay the money and have a pre-purchase inspection.

In addition to the recall you should know that the next service will be pretty expensive. If inspection II is not completed aready it will probably cost at least $1000 unless you plan on doing the work yourself. (valve clearance check \ adjust)
