Hi, I am new here and excited about this forum. Looks like a great source of information. I am going to Lawrence Kansas to look at a sweet 2000 M roadster. I would appreciate any advice I could get on what to look for, especially red flags that indicate problems. The car only has 25k miles and I was told it has not been raced. It also comes with a hard top which I am not so sure I will ever use, but nice to have. Also, I was wondering if I should run by a BMW mechanic to get it checked out before I buy it. I am not sure if there is one in Lawrence, but if anyone knows of a good one near there please let me know.
