have the 26 point inspection done, this will reveal such things as prior accidents and "loose" front end parts~

The hood is a telltale indication of prior overheats (no one cleans up afterwards)~

Okay , Should the car be bought or no?

Does the underside show signs of coolant overheat....electrical smoke?

This one may have been pieced together from TWO total wrecks....it happens more than you think...a mechanic with a good lift could spot the joint between the two and do a general inspection of the safety of critical components....a previously savaged title is always a baddie, they will swim one way or the other and cannot be adjusted properly....you may watch out for something like this~

This is what it looks like.

Seems safe at 85mph (like one might do on the Golden State Freeway I- 5?

service maintenance records complete to EVERY mile on that odometer?

Definitely YES, if this being the case!

You are buying from the original owner- that's the way to do it- A BMW is a good well-built fun car- that's a plus- I wouldn't call 160,000 miles low mileage, but the price is low, and since you are talking to the owner, it was prob'ly maintained- it sure looks good- I LIKE IT AT THAT PRICE

You need to have the vehicle inspected for any issues by a bmw specialist. That year of vehicle does have subframe cracking issues and is a very costly repair if it is needed. Mileage I wouldn't worry about if the vehicle has good maintenance records. Always have the car inspected before a purchase no matter how good the price is. I hate surprises

How much would that inspection cost?

4,625

That would depend on who does the inspection call around and ask how much they charge to inspect the vehicle just make sure they work on BMW's.

$125 inspection with a dynamometer to check engine performance~
