I would also suggest get an AutoCheck done by Experian when you do decide to get the car. We were almost fooled by CarFax on a heavily frame damaged E60. The Indy dealer showed us a clean record. Our lender ran a VIN check anyway with AutoCheck and it showed up as frame damage and airbag deployment. You can either get a one shot report or unlimited for a month for a fee. Its very worth your while to do that.

Good luck.
