My experience, don't buy a used BMW from anyone except BMW.
From various "prestige" used car lots, you really have NO IDEA what you are buying.
Remember all those floods in Queensland? More then a few written-off cars are repaired, and shipped interstate for selling in yards like that.
Yes, you can lookup the car's status., but Queensland make you pay for the search...bastards!

I just don't think it's worth the risk, and let's be honest, the prices aren't THAT different!
