Sorry, I'm out the door right now to head up north for a bit and will be heading down to see the car first thing tomorrow morning (no time to check archives as i'm sure this has been covered hundreds of times). It's a nice little Silver E30 i am wanting to buy for club racing... What do i need to look for? I drive a 318ti and do not know much at all about the wear and tear of E30 M3s. All i know is that they are beautiful cars with great history.

What exactly do i need to check? Somebody told me rear shock mounts but i plan on replacing those anyway. The previous owner had the "tensioner replaced" that's all he said. I'm buying off the 2nd owner. I asked him exactly what was replaced, but that's all he said. That and the clutch. What do i need to look for? Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. I hope this car is in an alright condition, i hope to be part of the E30 community...always have since the E30 DTM days :)
