A couple of things, to get the worst out of the way, who knows why it overheated but a lot of dealers would say the car just got hot, you ruined it by driving it hot and blew the motor. They would say heres a new hose, have a nice day. So I would be calm and not too demanding. But of course it very possible the head was bad first, but how to prove it?
I don't think any lawyer will help you, in fact a lawyer would tel the dealer to blow you off.
2Anyway if you mean they financed it and you can back out and only lose what $800? I would make that you instant fall back position, as in; try for more but don't spoil the deal
Take the money and RUN. great if you get more as was suggested, but you are on very thin ice. NO ONE is going to fix this car adequtely, it is a parts car, its doomed (sorry I assume you are discussing a 97 525) Get out with as much as you can but GET OUT and try again
I just bought a 530, 01 ,way more valuable, with 139k but with premium,sport,NAV, shades, garaged etc for 9000$ and I wish I'd payed 7500$
Next time post BEFORE you buy and don't let this ruin you on bimmers
expect to look for 3 months before you find a deal
We'll be glad to help
