Everything else is OK, and the car looks great (which i know doesn't mean sh!t) and the Carfax report says

"CARFAX found no odometer rollbacks for this 1994 BMW 325IS AUTOMATIC "

INCONSISTENT ODOMETER READING


CARFAX AdvisorTM
CARFAX analyzed this mileage history and is uncertain whether this reading represents a rollback or a clerical error. Please verify the mileage with your dealer or a qualified mechanic.

I thought the owner(it has had 4 owners) might have replaced the engine with a used one...but my friends telling me this is too fishy.......what to do..what to do....

the car has 106,000miles on it right now...so it has been driven for about 12,000 since the last inspection.....

THe car probably has at least 170K or more on it from looking at the carfax. I bet the instrument cluster was replaced around 160K. Then a cluster from a bimmer w/ 95K was thrown in there. Definitely fishy if the seller has negelected to state this fact..

Complete mod list and pics:
