Welcome to the forums.

You should spend some time browsing the sub-forums.

They are topic based.

Find the topic you're looking for (specific car model) and ask your question there.

You'll get responses that way.

EDIT::: this was moved from a different thread.

Thats 30,000 miles. Thats not a lot of miles for a 2011. In the states, that would be a reason to consider it. I guess it depends on the service records. At 30,000 miles, it probably has not had much done to it. Maybe a few oil changes and the cabin filter. Brake job (maybe) but doubtful. I guess on brakes it would depend on how it was driven. I have personally had brakes go 70,000 miles, but that is because I drive mostly back roads and freeway. City driving would cut the brake pads and rotors life down considerably.

If it was in an accident, walk away, far far way.

I'd also set aside a budget to maintain it. 335's are expensive to maintain once they get past 75,000 miles. They are fun to drive though.

Although I'm sure you meant well, telling us the year, make, model, and mileage does not give us the information we need to tell you if it's a wise purchase. A car at that mileage could have been abused every second of its life and never seen any service, or it could be an immaculately clean enthusiast-owned vehicle. You're the one that saw the car-- what did you think of it?
