    The main things to go wrong on the E92 M3 are you what you mentioned

    Another thing to keep in mind is solid service history and a spec you are happy with- drive a few including DCT and Manual (can’t beat a DCT though) and negotiate hard as it’s a buyers market atm

    Good luck

    Car looks ok with reasonable spec.
    Just a comment for the future, the mileage is over 60k so if you want to extend the BMW warranty it will be more expensive.
    Maybe try and get a second year's warranty out of them if you can (possibly won't do that). Worth a try.
    Alternatively there are a couple on the BMW AUC site that have less miles though they are a few squids more :)

    OP if you don’t open that advert and look at the car and fall in love then perhaps the E92 is not the car for you o_O
