There are many records that will not show up on a Carfax. Some law enforcement agencies, for example, do not share accident records. That's why it's vitally important to take the car to an independent BMW specialist (not the owner's mechanic) for a pre-purchase inspection.

Also, many enthusiasts would say that the typical BMW dealer service schedule does not provide an acceptable level of preventative maintenance.
