Buying a 2016 M3

Looking to buy this M3 for $46k


https://www.carfax.com/cfm/ccc_Displ...;partner=CDM_O

Doesn't have the lighting package though. Has the executive package and the driver assist package.

Anything I should look out for?

Edit: it's getting a PPI through my mechanic right now.

Looks good man. Clean looking car. I don't think there's anything specific to really look for. These cars are built solid. I'd personally look for any cosmetic wear and tear such as rock chips or scuffs around the car. Also not possible to tell from the naked eye, but the PPI should be able to tell you if the previous owners tracked the car or drove it spiritedly. Hopefully not abused as well.

Also, let's link up at the next car meet if you end up getting it! I'm in Austin too. Just recently got an M4.

Paint is decent. It definitely went through an automatic car wash at least once but no major scratches or dings. I'm going to detail and ceramic coat it myself anyway so that isn't a major concern of mine.

Nothing came up in the PPI except that the in cabin air filter needed replacement. Which isn't a concern to me.

What would you say a fair price would be. I really wanted a black M3 with black seats. I've seen so many with the Sakhir orange seats with relatively the same options for around the same price but I just can't do that.

So with everything, you probably looking around $55K. It is a litle high for the mileage and no warranty left (I assume it is over, and not CPO).
Try to negociate where they can throw in another year of warranty for so.
