wad06 is an unknown quantity at this point
I am considering a 1999 528i. The owner claims that it has premium and sport packages. He is asking $14,500. Is this a good price? How do I confirm that the sport package is really there? I assume I'll be able to tell the premium package by the heated seats and leather.

Can some one run a carfax (I think I've seen other people here request that). The vin is: WBADM6330XBY32397.

Any advice is appreciated.

I believe the sports package has a "3 point" steering wheel and 17" rims.

For that price you could go back a couple years and get a 540i with a six speed.

That's awesome. How can you check the options by the VIN ?

I was told that my car had the sports package before I bought it but, it had M5 wheels on it so I am not sure of what size wheels came stock. Also, I have the chrome trim so, I was assuming it's not a Sport.

Can you check my options also if I post my VIN?

Thanks for all of the info and opinions on the forum.
