If he's buying from a dealer, they can run a VIN printout and show all work done at BMW facilities. He should ask to see it, not just maintenance records.

Can your brother DIY? Doing the little things really help on these cars, as you probably know.

Suggest he check the For Sale section on M5Board to get a feel for pricing. IMHO its worth paying a bit more for good maintenance.
