Check out the E46 section. I just posted the same thing...the one I was looking at turned out to be a dud (lack of regular oil changes and that's as far as I went).

If your going to buy one, buy one off here from a trusted member. Price will be higher then the junk off kijiji, however it will be cheaper in the long run. A 2000 in well maintaned condition is still worth 12-13k any cheaper then 9k it's junk. But yea a well maintaned BMW will have all the records/receipts. So just look for rust, and drive it around the block. They are solid cars otherwise.

Had my 01 for 10 yrs now and it has been my most reliable car so far.
Weakest point is suspension bushings but if you want the tight handling it's a small price to pay. Avoid any pre 2001 models ( not to offend anyone but those years seem to be more rust prone)
Make sure it's been properly maintained with service records
