:rofl:It has served him faithfully for 92,000 miles. Of course, the check engine light was on for half those miles.
used-car dealers are looking to make a profit I thought they were social service organizations.The result? After more than 12 years with one owner, this M5 has been sold to CarMax, who will inevitably dump it at auction to some used-car dealer that's looking to make a quick profit. If you run across it, I have some advice: test drive. But don't buy.
You posted a reply on my original comment! It's sad how little that owner apparently thought of his M5. You'd think that after 12 years there would be some attachment there to keep it in good condition and find it a good home.Nice to see nimrods giving their cars away. Makes them cheaper for us. That seller paid the stupid tax. Can't believe he'd own it for 10 years and not come here for advice. I'd pay 15k for that thing in a heartbeat.
edit: I posted a comment on that article.
They do. Which is why no one in their right mind would use the BMW OE cat unless it was covered by warranty. And that assumes the cats were bad, I don't know how you can tell the cats will need replacing "soon" unless you can hear the substrate breaking up. If so, you need the cats now.$4,000 Cat job looming? The dealer doesn't really charge that much do they? You could almost get full performance headers and cats installed for that.
