The car needs to be inspected by an independent BMW dealer/mechanic and provide you with a detailed report of its condition.

imo, I wouldn't buy a used car unless it was a CPO, had the maint. records or inspected.

Can you get the VIN? If you know where the car lived, maybe you can call some of the local dealers, give them the VIN and see if it's in their computer.

Good luck.

Are there any other cars available in the same price range in your area?

Thanks Silver4evr,
I will ask for VIN and area details ...though I am in the different country, as the car is imported from UK and I am in Ireland. It will be very difficult to approach UK dealers from this end .
Yes there are other cars in the same range, but with lesser spec ..like sport steering ,auto a/c etc. Also, when I took a test drive the MPG was showing as 7.1 .... when I enquired the agent said ..if Tank is refilled it will be alright .. Is this true. He says I will get more than 40 miles per gallon.
