Finally almost pulled the trigger on this, but viewed the car and it looks like Car #1 might have the dreaded N52 "ticking" noise. I heard the ticking but can't tell if it is the cylinder head problem or if it is ticking because it was just sitting around for a bit. The owner reports that he has never heard the noise before and that the car has been sitting around for 3 weeks. It went away after driving. Had it inspected by an indy mechanic and he said that he heard faint ticking but that the noise was "normal." The owner also thinks this is just the way the car sounds, but is going to take it into BMW and complain of ticking, so we shall see where that goes.

For 22.75, it is pretty difficult to swallow that price on a car that might have the potential tick with only 10K miles left on the warranty. Will keep everyone updated as to how this transaction plays out.

Car 2 and 3 are still on the market.
