Hi guys,

Need a quick advice from you as i need to close on this car no latter than today

Its a 2006 got 55,910 miles on it (all options with navigation), directly from the owner, i have checked the carfax and the owner story seems true, he leased it for 2 years they bought it, all records of carfax seems to be good, nice and clean interior/exterior except for very minor scratches, problem is that its BLACK color so i could easily spotted them under the sun

The final price is $17,500, so what do you guys think? do you know where I can take the car and do some detailed inspection in Brooklyn?

Sounds like it could be a car. Maybe it has 4 wheels.

If the car checks out okay from an Indi inspection, that's a good price. A quick search on Autotrader for that same vehicle, miles etc....will show asking prices in the $19 to $23K range depending on options.

If you plan on keeping it for awhile just be aware that about the 125k mark you might be looking for a transfer case which = $$$$$$$$$$. That's why I traded mine in for my e60 this year. I did love that SAV though.

The transfer case is where your transmission sends the power to be split between the front and rear drive shafts. It's a big aluminum case that is connected to the transmission and then there will be two drive shifts coming out of it, one to the front and one to the rear. Inside is basically two gears connected by a really wide chain like a bicycle. It will stretch eventually.
