Default Future M3 owner, question about odd carfax history

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and in the market for an E92 M3. I have my eyes on a particular m3, but the carfax service history is a little odd, and I wanted to see if anyone has any idea what may have happened to this car when it was brand new. It shows that right up to its first 4,000 miles that the car had its driveshaft replaced and new tires by BMW. I did some research and could not find any other m3 with driveshaft issues when brand new. It sounds like to me that the car may have been abused right off the lot. What do you guys think? Should I stay away from this one? I have yet to see any other M3 with a service history like this one.

I would venture to say it was driven hard the first couple of miles there. Tires last more than 2500 miles. I am only saying this because I have seen this before. The driveshaft Tires combination is lots of launches, what's transmission does the car have? However If all checks out with the PPI could be a different story.

That is wierd.
Tires @ 2,493
Driveshaft @ 3,978
Glovebox @ 5,495

It could be some freak production problem that was fixed properly even though the car was pampered. It is possible. However, anyone buying the car from YOU is going to read that. Easily subtract $5,000-$10,000 from your offer to compensate for that future loss.
