If so...this is bad because....
in short, this means that the car has suffered tremendously in resale value, and that even if you were to purchase it for a cheaper price, there are chances it could be a lemon.

you claim to have a high school diploma, no?

Pretty much every person I know from school, who didn't leave the state for a job, lives there. I've had a lot of fun every time I go, bars are fun and a lot of good people.

That should be a red flag. Dealers like that rely on people's love of a badge who don't care about anything else as long as they can buy it....miles, salvage title, repairs....doesn't matter

I thought it was illegal for a dealership to sell rebuilt salvage vehicles for anything other than parts?

If it has been repaired the right way I don't see what's the problem. The new generation frame machines are so accurate that even a BMW tech couldn't tell if it has been in an accident, frickin lasers and sh!t.

F10s with this many miles and with a clean title go for 40k-45k. Essentialy you're saving 5k-10k in the short term, although it does hurt the resale value and you don't get a warranty. Your call. I would rather add 10k and go for a 550i like this:

http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...nal&listType=1

or this:

A 4 banger in a 5 series and xi are some of the most undesirable things you can have when buying a used F10...

I agree with everything stankia says except for the XI part. It snows in Michigan so AWD may be preferred in that state.

I live in Chicago and have been doing just fine with RWD. When spring comes there's nothing better than hit the twisties in a RWD car

I may do that tough murder as well on the 29th. I live about 5 min from ro. Let me know if you want to get a workout in. Got a pretty sweet home gym.

Hook me up with some of that workout gear man I'll message you then when the time comes closer of course, I'd be down for sure! Prepping for my Vegas one in April, I am in need of making a thread for it all.

wow, that's terrible. changed the color AND the miles?! wtf

BMWvin.com says that VIN had an original color of spacegrey metallic. the salvage site has a black car...something isn't making sense.

Probably a stolen loaner, they ripped the VINs off the salvaged one. Zing.
