Just did a carfax on it. Thought I was 2nd owner, but am 3rd. 2nd owner bought it in 1999 with 46k miles and from 05-07 (when I bought it) it only saw 1100 miles! Came back clean overall, though - 2nd owner brought it to CT and it failed one emissions test (only tick mark on the report), then passed the next day. Ended up in my hands back down in FL 1/07 (74k miles). It had an engraving on the underside of the valve cover "Vista BMW 9/89 lash" guessing that was a valve adjustment and is the local BMW dealership. Must have been stored away for some time for it to have 46k miles in 99 lol.
