    If it's 'used' make sure all the service history is up to date and makes sense!
    if not,why not? Don't touch without history!
    Don't expect too much performance! It's a small engine for a heavy car!
    Good luck with the purchase!

    Have a look here, http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar...ries-e90-2005/

    Certain wheels are known for cracking on the inside of the rim so have a look as best as possible at the insides, it is due to the Run Flat Tyres stiff side wall. Only select wheels crack though, there's quite a lot of info on the forum about it.

    Don't forget to perform a HPI check.
