[Help] Is this CPO car history good?

http://www.carfax.com/VehicleHistory...DTPZKkpYJ91sGK

The owner pretty much did all the maintenance inspection on time. But there are something that were replaced and adjusted such as the battery and the fuel pressure.

Can someone kindly review this carfax? Thanks a lot!

A lot of that is just standard checks that the dealer does.

They always do more than what they need to it seems when the car is under warranty.

Looks totally normal to me.

Ya they look normal to me as well, but by looking at the record, it seems like the owner went in for service every other 2 months lol. I am more worried that there's a story behind it. Maybe I am just being too picky?

I think you're definitely being too picky. You should be happy that you'd be getting a car that has been serviced frequently.

I had a 335 for over 2 years and zero of the multitude of problems I had to have repaired at a BMW dealer are on the carfax. Try to get a BMW service/repair history from a BMW dealer if you can, it will actually show what was done.

^ That and the car looks like it was driven a lot, so because the milage after every two-three months maybe the owner wanted the work done more often. I would try getting a copy of the service records, which should be no problem at all.

It looks good but definitely take a look at the service records to see what has been done. Side question, I'm also looking for a car and I noticed that all the cars Rallye posts have no tow hook covers in the pictures. Why is that?

^Thanks to all posters. I will def ask for the service paper.

StevenY. I have no idea... They probably took the pics right after it got off the truck, so they don't have to pull the cars out to take stand alone shot? My guess lol.
