I couldnt find the right car at the right price when I was looking, It took me a year to find.

I wanted a 328i 6 speed RWD with sport package and HID's Nav didnt matter
exterior color wasnt a big concern either but no tan and had to be priced right.
Local dealers want way to much.

When I found the car I wanted I posted on here to see if anyone lived local that
could do a visual inspection for me which someone did. I offered a few bucks but
the enthusiast said its local no prob at all ill give you a full report in and out.

Once I got that, I asked the dealer that had the car ( non bmw ) if they would bring
to the local dealer which I provided the name and number of the local dealer. I pre-paid over the phone for the PPI ( pre purchase inspection )

At that point BMW certified everything mechanical was good, and the forum member on here verified things like dings and dents etc.

And then I negotiated and bought the car sight unseen.

I got a great car and couldnt be happier for the right price which was a few
thousand less in cost what I found locally.
