Especially if it was drive up here in the northeast.
A $35k m3 with 100k and needing at least bumper re-sprays and wheel refurbishing is more like a $40k m3.

And at $40k, you can start looking at m3s with 50k miles on it in much better condition.

The price doesn't warrant your attention. If it was $28k, maybe.
AW/Carbonstructure 6MT 2015 M3 picked up 8/22/2014. Stripper except for adaptive suspension. Weighed in at 3,450 pounds with 3 gallons of gas in tank. 25,000 miles as of 11/9/16

Not to mention if the previous owner was curbing wheels and adding bumper dings s/he was potentially negligent in other areas (like proper warm up of engine before driving hard, trying to avoid big potholes). There is also a service history gap.

That particular example was just not a good one but the idea of a higher miles and lower cost car is worthy to pursue, I think
