Check the oil, coolant and tranny fluid. Car should sound like its not running when inside the car. Go on the freeway and floor it, to hear it downshift and stuff like that. But dont redline it, if the owner is in the car lol

Check for a spare tire, vin numbers should be on all fenders, hood, trunk lid, doors. Not sure where it would be on the doors.

Start the bidding at $8k and work from there. Probably get away with it for $9k, since the 90k service is just around the corner. Dealerships want $2k for there service, but Im sure you can find a cheaper place, with the same quality techs ;)

"Painted M3 Steel Grey"

^^^^This could be really good or hiding a real disaster.

I'd go for a bone stock IS. They are out there.
