Which M3 did you test drive E36 or E46?? I would say 15-18g's for your car as a private sale, depending on the condition. Dealer will rape you of course if you trade it in.

I would have it examined. It's my belief that every used m3 has been toyed with or revved to no tomorrow by the previous owner(s). Unless you personally know the previous owner, I'd just assume the above for the car. Now, it doesn't mean it's a bad buy, but I'd just look more closely for signs of wear and tear than with a regular e36 because maintenance costs will be a little higher.
Also, check with your insurance company to make sure you can afford the insurance. The worst feeling ever is buying a car and then finding out you have to pay $400 a month or more on insurance
If you get the car though, I get dibs on riding shotgun at one of the up and coming meets

When I had to get my 96 328is quoted at BMW (I had/have around the same amount of km's as you), they said it was worth about 12gs

Though I told em to go a bit lower for import purposes.. but I'm not sure if the guy did or not.

When the price is that much off, the first thing I think of, what's wrong with the car that they are selling it for so low.
