    I hope your seller not only is genuine but knows what he's talking about too!
    If you've paid a deposit and it turns out there's patches of rust or a leak in the footwell etc, you'll have lost the money coz vehicles aren't covered by buyer protection.

    Saying that it look nice.....but if I was trying to offload a dodgy car I'd take good pic too!

    I mean it when I say I hope this doesn't turn into another "I got ripped off on a car" thread, but you should always, always view a car before buying it

    i here your concerns all and yes it is a big risk .. but guy has owned it for 5 years + he sounds genuine (not that makes him so lol) , the MOT history all checks out .. from the pictures of his house above looks like quite a well off chap .. hopefully garaged etc

    its got full service history and only 75k miles .. i am worried only reason i took the plunge was due to the distance to go view (3 hours treck)

    im taking my mate with me who knows BMW's very well . hes on thess forums (sure he will post lol)

    worst case i will loose my deposit .. but rather that than loose serveral grands

    hey chaps thought i would update

    back home now with the sport . for the £3500 i paid for it im one happy man :-)

    it did a 200 mile trip back from Wales with no hiccups

    Only couple of minior issues are
    • Tracking is slightly out - when straight steering is off to the left (sure this is tracking)
    • One Faulty Parking Control Sensor (Replacement Ordered)
    • auto dropping passenger mirror is very intermittent will go down sometimes but not up sometimes not at all ? views on this ?
    • and finialy the standard Harman Kardon subwoofer is a bit crackley


    on the whole though these are just little niggles car pulls and drives well and has fantastic service history

    if pople got some views on my little glitches list that would be great

    Regards
