I have my records and I have not replace whats listed above. These items have not failed and I have driven the car 15k miles in the last 6 years. I asked my mechanic on the bearings and he suggested based on my use of the vehicle 60k- 80k would be the time. If I used it hard and a daily driver than at 60k-70k miles would be the time to do it. I have replaced the DSC module about 1.5 yrs ago and the starter which the dealership replaced when I purchased the car 6 yrs ago. No other issues with the car. Thank you for note.

You buying it? People have to get over it,
There are many cars that run fine without this paranoia

I might. It's things that have to be taken into consideration when buying at that price. Those things alone would cost several thousand done at an indy.

Don't get me wrong, I know people have run bearings for over 100k without changing them. But that's not what I'm getting at. It's kind of a premium price, even for an LCI. And having these issues addressed even if you don't believe they are should inflate or deflate the price.

Beautiful car! The price seems fair to me, given condition and relatively low mileage. I paid $42K a couple of years ago for a 2010 E63 M6 6-speed coupe with 5K on a new factory-installed engine, transmission and clutch.
