Question Can anyone pull a Carfax Report? I'm trying to get back into a BIMMER :)

It's been quite a while, and my desire to get back into a bimmer has been growing and growing. It's time.

Can anyone pull a carfax report on VIN WBAVB33526KS31758?

Thanks for sending this info over, I really appreciate it. Do you know if any forum members have access to carfax reports? The VIN data is very helpful, but I also need to make sure a car I am looking at is clean, no accidents. Thanks again for your help!

Funny thing, there was a topic like this couple months back and no one bothered to reply.

But if it's a dealership they should provide a carfax for any of their cars for free but if it's a private seller then ask them if they have carfax on the car, if they don't then quit being cheap and just pay for the carfax, it's only $10-20.

Not being rude or mean but don't buy an expensive car if you can't even spend $20 for a carfax.

Pulling a carfax costs $40. And it seems most private party cars have been in an accident. $40 per carfax adds up fast. Im not being cheap by asking if anyone on here can pull carfaxes, I am being smart.

Thanks so much for pulling this carfax. I knew it was a good idea to post on this forum, great people like you. I also found someone else that is willing to pull them for $5 each. Sure beats paying $40 each! Many times dealers have unlimited access, so I figured I would find a dealer willing to pull reports for a small fee.

Anyway, so this seller claimed no accidents, and immaculate condition, no scratches. They were probably right about the no scratches since it likely has a brand new paint job from being in 2 accidents!!! Ridiculous... My search continues.

By the way, I am looking for a 2006 330i w/ Sport and Premium. My old car that I never should've sold

Agreed. Thanks for your help as well! There are tons of awesome people on this forum. I miss my E90 friends and more importantly my E90!

Sold it because I was moving and didn't know if I was going to have a garage at my new place. Didn't want to park it in the squeezed spaces and have a new door ding every morning. Thought it would be easy to find another when the time came. It isn't so easy to find another but I have a garage now so I am keeping my eye out for an 06 330i. My last one was Jet Black w/ Black Leather. Auto. Sport & Premium.

...before you continue your search, let the seller know that they should stop scamming people. That's just not cool... at all.

If enough people mooched free carfax reports they would go out of business. They provide a valuable service, don't cheat them out of their due compensation.

Just sayin.

I most definitely did. They purchased the car a year ago from an auto broker, Kero's, and claim to know nothing about any accidents. Well, they know now, so hopefully they are honest with the next potential buyer.

You are correct, and fortunately for them I am only one person.

I love how they purchased the car one year ago and couldnt push a sale through yet... then claiming they know nothing about an accident when someone runs a carfax on it..
