New to the board and this is my first posting.
After lusting over the M5 for years - I finally decided to purchase one.
A beautiful black on black manual transmission from Husker in Nebraska.
Car was described by the dealership as pristine - never had any wrecks or any damage.
Car fax was clean.
Purchased the car and had it shipped to Louisiana.
Arrived this past Friday. Upon inspection it was obvious that the rear bumper had been painted.
Not the smooth BMW finish, but an irregular "orange peel" texture. Additionally, the rear right quarter panel
seems to have been painted. There is a faint paint tape line on the door well for the passenger rear door.
To say the least, I am not happy.
I am having it inspected today to make sure there are no further mechanical or body or electrical problems.
I included in the purchase contract the option to return - which I may try to exercise.
Not sure that they are even going to honor it.
If no other problems are found - I may offer to keep the car if a refund is provided.
Not sure what deduction would be appropriate for a car whose rear bumper and rear quarter panel have been repainted.
Why can't people just be honest???
