Welcome to the forum. This is a common problem. I just replaced mine last September at around 70k miles. It's less than $100 and maybe 20 minutes of your time. Super easy.

I had the same symptoms and it was indeed the wiring. I think two wires were severed, but many more were in poor shape. Kind of awkward to get in there and fix but not terribly difficult to do.

I used to autocross a lot in former cars - too much fun. Hoping to get the BMW out to a track day at Infineon or Laguna Seca this year. Hopefully Infineon since I already know that track well.

Duralast battery codes?

Put in a new battery today - picked up another 95R-DLG from AutoZone. Sticker on top said something like 34/14, but since that one's in the car now I'm just looking over the old one.

I had the same problem when I did my brakes. I ended up putting a 4x4 inch piece of lumber on the ground and slowly lowered the rotor down on that. The weight of the car made it pop right off.

Price does seem a little low, depending on how it's optioned. Definitely have an inspection done on it, and see where that leads.
