Does anyone live near Barrington, IL?

I am looking to purchase a 335xi coupe, if anyone lives close by and is willing to take a look for me I will happly paypal you some $$ for your time. The deal seems to good to be true. I am guessing in smells like smoke, clutch is beat or is in rough shape for being a 2009. It was the dealer loaner car.

The best thing to do is to hire an independant, BMW mechanic. There are several places you can take it to, i'm sure. Do not accept the dealerships mechanic! You want a non-biased 3rd party who is informed to have a look over it.

I live in the northern burbs and know a independent former BMW tech in the No. burbs. PM me if you want his info.

I've only bought new at MW, but I've never been disappointed by them or their svc dept yet.

If it's not beat, the only thing I can think of why it is so cheap is because of the odd color compi, but I personally like it (not everyone in my office agrees though).

Thx for the posts/advise.

Might have better luck posting this in the Great Lakes forums so that you get better responses. FYI...

I was interested in that car too so I did some research. They were asking for $39,990 couple weeks ago so right now it is a nice price drop. That car equipped with cold package, premium package and navigation and that's it, no sport package, no logic 7, no comfort access, no ipod/usb .... I think this car has good value, just that I was looking for a little more options on the car.
About inspection, I just bought a car out of state and I used carchex.com to do the inspection for me. It costs around $100 bucks and I think it worth it. The car I bought had some scratches and stone chips and the inspector pointed that out and took pictures of it. Because of that I got the seller to fix the scratches as well as touch up on the stone chips, just for that I think it is worth the $100 bucks.
Btw, I asked the BMW dealership how much they would charge for an inspection and it was $290 !!!! Welcome to the BMW world !!! They were very nice to answer my questions about the car's history and warranty stuff on the phone though.
