Default 2011 with 18,900 miles. Thoughts?

Hello everyone, I'm seriously considering buying a 2011 M3 coupe I found with 18,900 miles. Seems hardly broken in.

The car is for sale at a local BMW dealer. The Car Fax shows two owners. The first owner drove the car a total of 12,741 miles in 2 years 5 months. The second owner drove the car 1800 miles a year for the next 4 year.

So, I've read on here about bearing failures, throttle actuators going bad. Besides those things is there anything else to worry about or would the low mileage on this car actually scare anyone away?

Also, I wondered if people are putting a different oil than BMW recommends due to it being so thick. I live in Texas which should help it some but just curious.

I'm also open to any current good 3rd party warranty companies. I know there aren't any "true" good companies but I can't have a 2011 car not have a warranty even with low miles. I will try and just find the best company I can and buy one and hope for the best.

Thanks in advance.
