Default In the market for E92...

I am currently in the market for a bone-stock E92 pre LCI 6MT. I found NA V8 screaming at 8400 rpm appropriate for my intended use.

Options& traits:
-Two previous owners (has been maintained by the same shop since new)
-58k miles
-6MT
-Alpine White III
-EDC with H&R springs
-M driver's package
-Excellent exterior
-Clean interior (black)
-19 inch OEM wheels (Advan front, P zero rear)
-Pads and rotors in good shape

Maintenance:
-Throttle actuators replaced (L&R)
-Alternator replaced
-Battery replaced

Some of the buggers are:
-no HUD
-been on 5w-40 after warranty, only street driving.

I plan to do BE bearings as a preventive measure after the purchase,
but what else am I looking at besides LCABs/tie rods/RTABs? They seemed fine, but I suspect they'll need change after a short while.

Front control arms, rear toe arms. Lift car, twist back and forth with your hand. If you can hear metal contact they are worn. Probably still serviceable but you can’t twist new stock ones. TRW makes them for bmw and trw replacements are cheap.

Motor mounts. Corteco makes for BMW. Trans mounts should be fine — I changed mine at 90k and the new ones felt like the old ones.

Front felt undertray. Peak under front bumper to see if felt center and side parts are ripped up. Everything new is $350.

Brake rotors can be measured. Feel for a lip on outside edge of face. Also for rippled surface. New rotors area about $250 each.

Rod bearings is a smart idea. There is a diy. $500-1000 in parts. About $1000 labor.

TA is common failure but yours were replaced. $600 each and a couple of hours to do both.

I would not worry about 5W40. It’s fine for anything but maybe track use. Porsche GT3 RS uses 0W40 and revs to 9000.

Wow. Rotors are cheaper than E46 M3 euro drilled.

I will definitely do the engine mounts and tranny mounts since they are easy to do&sometimes cause power steering hose failure from excessive movement.

Looks like rod bearing is the major issue at hand.

I shopped carefully and just bought bmw front rotors for $225 each and bmw rear rotors for $213 each, so $875 for all. I am sure you could spend more if you did not shop well.
