DrGoose is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hey everyone !!! I am hopefully to become a new-used BMW owner, currently searching for a 96-97 328i sedan for around $10,000. There have been several offerings on ebay which have peaked my curiosity, and as such I am frantically trying to read everything on BMWs available. I would like to know if in your search for your car you happened to ask a local dealer to pull up service records for the car in question. Is this something they will do for you or not?

Carfax is not that accurate, and I would like to ensure that I am getting a well cared for vehicle.

BTW - love some of your images and look forward to contributing in the future.

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
welcome DrGoose, glad to have you on board!! B)

your local dealer will do this for you. however, i am not sure if they will charge you or not. make sure you ask them if they will charge before having them look up the service records.

i agree with carfax. carfax is a very helpful tool, but they're not 100% accurate.
