Yes I checked and the carfax says CPO. I'm sure it is - thanks for that tip. I don't know why I didn't get a checklist to sign. I may call BMW Na and voice my frustration.

Definitely 3, possibly 2. 1. Looks too much like a 2001 525. )Though I liked the later years (2003?) 525 wheels)

Isn't three the classic wheel for a pre 2001 528?
