BMW M3: E92
Introduced in 2007, this M3 still requires a good nose around. Of crucial importance - for both this and indeed its E46 predecessor - is the running-in service at around 1000 miles. Regular oil services, in fact, apply across the entire range of M cars. In fact, across any car ever.
No other big issues, but best to check the condition of the tyres, the M settings in the iDrive and indeed other disposables, to give you some kind of clue as to what life it has had.
Here's a BMW Approved M3 - meaning it's a very, very clean motor - for £29,995. It's got just 12,000 miles on the clock, was registered in November 2010, and gets lots of additional bits and pieces.
