I think I may of found a good one:
Negative. They probably took it on trade and being that the asking price isn't bloated, they likely didn't pay much for it.Being that it is at a bmw dealership it has to be in good shape.
Pictures are nice but often don't reveal the real condition. A half decent photogragher can make just about any car look good.Will call this weekend and see if I can get pictures and service history.
I wouldn't trust the selling dealership to inspect. They will most likely offer as they make a few dollars but an indy knowledgeable in E39's is a better bet. My car was PPI'd at a BMW dealership and I was not impressed with the attention to detail. Missed lots of stuff....I wonder if I could trust bmw or still need a PPI done somewhere else.
There are several senior board members in the area that might be willing to have a look for you. Investigating Beasts can be fun. I've done it!Never bought a car site unseen out of the area and had it shipped. Think it is worth
Hey, don't worry about it. Everyone here has gone through the same process at least once to buy their car. And as these cars get older, it just gets all that more difficult to sort through the chaff to find a ... whatever is in the chaff. Kernel? Whatev.My gosh I feel so stupid with these posts asking for help.
Yup, looked decent, but, wasnt close to worth the asking price. I wouldnt have paid more than $18OTD for it. Cosmetic issues aplenty...What is the mileage and price? I just saw one in Phoenix online at a BMW dealer with just 57K miles for $19,800 but it was beat up a bit and was very dissociated listening to the BS the salesperson told me about their reputation and vigorous pre inspection to find out that the power rear shades are broke, 3 out of 4 rims have rash, big gash on the front bumper, few pixels out and missing bmw badge on the back.
I expect more from a BMW dealer.
