Hi. I was wondering if anyone knows approx. how much it will cost me to have a vehicle inspection done to a car. It's going to be a 3 series (either an M3 (sedan) or a 328i. Also, should I go to a bmw dealership to have it done or a shop that works on BMW's. Any estimates (or what you had to pay for you to get it done) would be great. Thanks

A good pre-buy inspection will usually run you about 80-150 at a BMW garage. Don't take it to the dealer, as they will charge you way to much.
