Previous owner replaced the tires 7/7/15 with Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport at around 84,000 miles, around 5K miles on them… in excellent condition.

Previous owner replaced front brake pads just a few days before I picked the car, just shy of 87,000 miles(9/1/15)… only about 2,500 miles on the pads

Cam position sensors were replaced around 72K miles on 3/6/14

I have extensive(not comprehensive) records. PO was a BMW employee and provided me a printout of services performed at the dealership between 1,444 and 50,764 miles.

The title is clean and this vehicle is accident free… I do have a note out on the car at my local credit union and have a copy of the title if anyone would like to see that it is clean. The bank will have the title sent to any branch by 10AM the following day once the note is paid in full.


Cons
PO pulled into a parking spot too far and the front bumper caught the concrete stop causing it to sag/mis-align a minor amount… I assume it caused damage to a tab/bracket of some sort. It doesn’t bother me enough to fix at this point, instead choosing to spend my time/money on the mechanical maintenance items. Broken passenger side headlight washer nozzle, still have the it... just not on car

Typical paint wear/rock chips on the front bumper as expected

Drivers side view mirror motor doesn’t work

2 minor spots/pressure dents on rear bumper , hardly noticeable from 5 feet away

Typical slight paint bubbling behind gas door(see photo)

Heli-coil in oil drain plug hole, PO stripped(common) the lower pan… the car doesn’t leak any fluid but on occasion I will see a droplet on the drain plug due Heli-coil design… No oil spotting on the ground where I park the car
