Need a good car inspector in San Jose area...

I'm looking at buying a used e90 at a Chevy dealer in near San Jose (about 50 miles east).

I need a professional who can go out and look at the car and tell me the overall condition of the car and if it's had any body work done or been in any accidents.

Recommendations? I need them today or Thursday (2/1).

Yes, but it's a Chevy dealer. They took the car in on trade (I think a Tahoe). I don't think they have any clue about this car or it's history and I'm worried that someone may have traded it in because they screwed it up somehow.

I know someone you can take it to..but not someone who will visit a dealer 50 miles east of san Jose. My friend owns Extreme Performance in San Jose..on the east side of San Jose. He is a multiple E36 M3 and E46 M3 owner. http://www.xperformance.com. Navid, the owner, knows his stuff.



This was his E46 M3.... :-)

Thanks! Carfax checks out. I'll see about how pheasible it is for me to take it to your friend.

The idea was to have someone check it out before I got there, so it may not work.
