Wondering if I could get some input?

Okay what are major problems to look out for with a e36 M3 coupe around year 1995-1998 around 100K miles on it? I know water pump, radiator, and rear shock towers. Is there anything else?

always try to look for a car with regular maintenance records.

and if you are serious about purchasing it, take it to a shop and have them inspect it for about $100. It could really save you a lot of trouble.

Rear subframe mounts are a big problem also.
