Hi All,

Complete newbie to m3s here, although I used to have 72 2002 that I just loved! Now I'm looking for a 95-99 M3. I found one on autotrader that looks ok, but the dealer won't let me have an independent shop inspect it. Is this unusual?

If anyone could check the VIN, that'd be great.

Thank a lot!

If the dealer wont let you have an independent inspection: walk away; they are hiding something.
