Bmw 335 CPO w Quebec Car proof

Town and Country BMW bought from auction and are selling it to me as a CPO for $33.5K..fully loaded and only 35,000 kms..

http://reports.carproof.net/view_rep...j1JZmQdw%3d%3d

The renewal on the carproof shows that its from Gatineau, Quebec, but I have documentation the car was bought from Otto's BMW in Ottawa (about 25 minutes across the border in Ontario. Emission test is in Ottawa though, what's going on here?

I've read a lot of suspicious things about Quebec cars and carproof not being able to detect accidents.

Can someone help me interpret this and does this seem suspicious to you guys? They are selling it as CPO so it has to pass certification and to the best of their knowledge has no accidents.

The car was originally purchased and registered in Quebec and the previous owner moved to Ontario. Regarding the Carproof, I think all provinces should be reflected on the report (insurance claim).

I don't know about this particular car BUT used BMWs can be CPOd if they have been in accidents. If the car has been brought back to "manufacturer's standards" they will CPO it.

Always best to thoroughly look it over especially when you are spending that kind of money.

I would stay away from that car. It has gone back to the dealer for service or repair far too often.

I believe cpo means 2k or less damage nevertheless the carproof has no damages and dealer said this too (subject to his best knowledge)

I guess I'm most worried about a faulty carproof due to quqbec laws and some way to hide it??

As for servicing I know 2 a year at least is for tires every nov and every april prolly.

Its monaco blue saddle brown w sports prem and nav so I couldn't pass esp at this price with 2 yrs left of cpo extended warranty.

Small world, BMW Waterloo offered me the same one yesterday... but for 35K It sounds like a great car on paper, but I passed on it because I wanted a 2008 and Black.

I would ask for the service history to see exactly what the car had done to it at the dealership. They are very specific reports.

Also, you may able to do better on the price (maybe) because by you having them look for and buy a car you already want to buy, they don't have the risk of it being purchased and sitting on the lot and depreciating. From what I'm told by someone who used to be in sales for a BMW dealer, the markup is quite large on used cars bought from BMW Finance auctions. In general, they want to make ~$5K after all reconditioning costs.

ya i believe the auction closed at 31.6K (at least i was told but requested proof)
and hes selling it to me for 33.5K with warranty and might have to throw in new brakes potentially

he's a friend of a friend though

ya i too wanted 2008 black and beige/jade grey but at this price and this mileage i couldnt turn it down

i've been looking for literally 5 months and you will not get a 2008 with sport/prem/nav with under 40kms for under 38K i'd say...

It was hard to not bite on it, especially considering all the packages it had and the lower financing rate. I'm looking for a 2008, Black with dark interior (anything but beige) CPO'd w/ Sport/Prem.

There's a BSM 2008 with Saddle and Sport/Prem with only 28K on the odometer for $38K at the Acura dealership which is extremely tempting. If it were only at the local BMW dealer. Oh well, the hunt continues.

ya i saw that acura kitchener one
passed its too expensive and you won't get a good finance rate or extended warranty (which seems necessary on the 335 due to HPFP and turbo problems)

good like finding the dream car!
