dapper66 is an unknown quantity at this point
I am looking at getting a BMW. Took a test drive in a 1986 535i 5 speed on Saturday. Want to get a carfax to see if the dealer's "3-owners" matches up. Interior is in great condition, only some wear on driver's seat bottom and the dash is cracked. Engine is clean, maybe just a good steam cleaning from the dealer though. Dealer did oil change and new sparkplugs. Dealer said cold start valve isn't working but once it starts it seems fine. Felt solid and tight in town and with small amount of highway driving. Pulls left on braking. Some front end shimmy at 50+ mph but car isn't pulling if you let go of the wheel. The tool kit is barren, trunk is very clean, no signs of rust. TRXs replaced with Borbet wheels and Toyo tires. Shifts good in all gears. There is a thunk if quickly engaging clutch, like a when starting from a light and traffic stops quick, could be the subframe mounts or differential mount, need to get a better look. Verticle paint surfaces are average, but the trunk, hood, roof are very faded with peeling clearcoat. Dealer is looking to get $1995.00 but that seems like it might be high considering they have no history about the car. What else should I be looking out for?

Thanks - Dave

Thanks for running that Carfax, I pulled the vin from the dealer info, so the WEA/WBA must have been bad handwriting from the dealer. Mileage log shows 400 miles in the last 3 years.
