Thoughts.

First, since you're looking using a large mileage buying radius, can't you find a similar car with alot less mileage? This one seems High.

Second, any car like this needs 2 things (in this order) Before purchase. A) Compression Test, B) PPI; if these check out then at least you know it's OK.

I'm having them do a PPI tomorrow but I would also like a real opinion, and I need it sort of fast. And to answer your question, no, there aren't many similar cars closer to me at a decent price point.

WHY would you have the dealer that's selling you the car, do the PPI?

That's like asking them if your getting a good price, or asking for a second and third opinion from the same doctor. This is a mistake, you Need to have that car Compression and PPI tested somewhere else that has nothing to do with that dealer.

But,..............it's your money.

Sorry, should have clarified. They are doing it at a BMW specialist local to them.

For me, a purchase like that would be worth the drive down, or the flight, to inspect in person and cut a deal.

Dealer taking it, even to another shop, for a PPI? No thanks.

Hopefully someone is in that area but not too many OH ppl here.

Thanks for the words Brendan. I actually decided to pass more or less for that reason.
