It's been quite a while since I have posted here and owned and M3. However, with today's market it seems like there are some fine deals on M3s out there, so I'm looking at returning to the M3.

I did a search in this forum, but not much came up in terms of problems (lower sub-frame mount cracks?). My last unit was a 2001, so I had to deal with the bearing recall issue, but it looks like that does not come into play after 2004.

I am considering a 2005, E46 M3 (it was a May build of that year), and wanted to see if anyone could provide some general feedback on what to look for and some issues that may be present in this year.

Thanks in advance!
