Asked by Oct 14, 2016 at 05:57 PM about the 2003 BMW 5 Series 530i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello everyone im new to this site so if im doing
something wrong its because i dont know. I have
just purchased a 2003 bmw 530i with 82,000 miles
for $4,800 out the door. The car is in emaculate
condition. Car fax show that all scueled
matanences have been performed at the same
BMW dealer. No check engine lights. Car runs
amazing. Clean title.
Is this to good to be true? If not what are things I
need to watch out for out side of the normal oil and
tires etc?
