No major issues with the E92 M3 so far, car has been pretty much bullet proof. DCT and Vanos can be pretty expensive to fix if any issues were to arise, i'd say, Take the car to a BMW dealership for a PPI. Measure clutch, brakes, check for any Vanos issues.
I personally would not buy one if doesnt have the entertainment center option.
i have half a mind to buy a porsche 911 or 912 with the motor blown out (hopefully tranny still functioning) or an old one with a ton of mileage and converting it to an electric car.
Do you actually have the know how?
If so, then more power to you, i think so far only, RUF has done such a thing, it'll be a 2nd.
IMHO, that would be an automotive blasphemy, that's the equivalent of taking a Prius and swapping the motor out with a big block Chevy. (I think the latter would even be more interesting)
