    New to BMWs

    Hello everyone!

    I am in the market for my first BMW. I live in MD and I am looking at M3s. I currently drive a 2006 Mustang and I will be selling that or trading it in towards a M3.

    I am going to see one Friday, north of Philly. It has about 60K miles on it. It is a certified 2006 couple with the SMG transmission. I intend to use the car as a daily drive and not to race so I am nervous about spending a lot of money on a car with that many miles on it. What are your thoughts? What do I need to look out for? Is it worth looking at an M3 with that many miles on it? Any advice that you can give to someone who is new to a BMW would be immensely appreciated.

    Thanks so much!
