Exclamation M3 comp buying guide

I have put down a deposit on a 2017 F80 M3 Competition and going to see it tomorrow, could anyone recommend what I need to look out for when checking the car over. I'm not very mechanical so would need an idiots guide if possible

It has 25k miles
Full BMW Service history
Running in service @ 1800
Mperformance exhaust
Full Carbon Kit
15mm Eibach Pro Line lowering springs with 12mm Bimmec Hubcentric spacers

Any help would be greatly appriciated

Look for tune
Look at coolant levels and leaks
Check for aftermarket suspension
Scan car for codes

Curious, how would you check for a tune?

25k miles with full bmw service history you should be fine with it. But if it puts your mind at rest just get an additional inspection from someone you trust.
