So I may have an opportunity to buy my dad's 02 M3. It has around 130k miles on it. On the one hand I would be paying cash, so that would be nice. And I think he has been good about doing proper maintenance on it. He was telling me that every 30k miles he changes all the fluids completely and has the valve alignments checked and fixed if they aren't within tolerance. Am I asking for trouble buying this car? I'd really like to not have to spend $2000 a year in maintenance. Also, not sure how much more life that motor has on it at that high mileage already.

Thanks for the input.
