$300 PPI...a bit much!?

I've been shopping around for a PPI in the PDX area for a clean carfax, low mile ZHP.

I know Kuni has one for $100, but it sounds like their check list is something a jiffy lube could do.
I prefer how in depth they are at Lithia BMW, but $300, really!?
Pacific Motorsports offers a good price and in depth inspection, but they don't do any body inspections.

What do you guys think?

My Ride: 03 CarbonSchwartz M3
I'm in Lacey also. I had my PPI done at Rasmussen BMW in Portland when I bought my M3 last year and paid $200, I believe. If they charge $300, make sure they include checking the subframes for cracks. Good luck.

the dealers offer different depths of inspections. You want the $250-$300 one.

$300 is cheap piece of mind, IMO.
