Hell, you've got about $10K worth of needed repairs now. Why are you even looking at this after getting that inspection report.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

Is this to say you don't know anything about cars? That's fine but you should at least know that a BMW and a list of other makes are not cheap or easy to even just maintain and real repairs can go thru the roof. It's the type of car/vehicle I suggest for folks who don't have to ask how much it cost they just want it no matter what types IMO.

That report from the selling dealer? If they know it needs all this why isn't it already done? Maybe just me but I see the ads for used BMWs here at dealers will offer up to new vehicle warranty - anything it could need for a generous amount of time and miles just to get rid of them. They aren't for everyone.

I suggest for a first car buy what is very popular in your area with a lot of good service help available to you for a first car and still check it out but not by the seller,

Looks like oil leak city with that thing. Pretty much pulling the engine out and resealing it is going to cost a fortune. The ac work is probably a grand or more by itself. I would pass on it if I were you. Also, you really should have your personal mechanic do there own inspection to verify if the dealers report is accurate or not. I sure you can find a nicer vehicle out there.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
