Hey guys I am looking to get back into a 04-05 745li. I use to have a 2002 745i that got stolen and totaled, I never had any problems with my 02. I currently have a 2005 530i with 49k miles on it. I have located a 2004 745li black/black with 62k miles on it in very nice looking condition. Its fully loaded and the asking price in $19,900. The VIN for the car is WBAGN63594DS53288. If someone could please look into the vehicle history for me, I would greatly appreciate it alot. Also please give me advice on this purchase (negotiation price, and what checks to look for). Thank you guys alot, below I have posted the autotrader link for the car, please view.

It sure is a sweet looking car. So far by looking at those pics. One thing I saw is the Shift Indicator not lit up or is it because it's not turned on and the light switched on or something. Just make sure you ask for a copy of carfax. Obviously the car sits in the showroom for pics or something, but make you check for oil leaks. Use your bright flash light if you have one. It's a pretty good price. That spoiler alone costs about a grand ( give or take ) Looks like it's loaded as well. It's a sweet looking beast. Color combination is great. And sports wheels and all. It's nice. I'd say about $18500 or something. Or even the full price is still a steal. An 04 Li with Spoiler, blk on Blk. It's a rare find, I can tel you that. JUST LIKE MY AVATAR...Hehehe
Good luck.:D
