Mein Auto: '09 Cayenne "S"
Somebody will buy this car and someone will get a good deal on it. If you can get it for about $6K less than the "unreconstructed" cars are going for -- then it is a good deal. However -- this car needs a serious prior sales inspection -- not just the $150 "look it over" kind -- but a put it on the rack, take off the wheels, look inside the hidden parts kind of thing. Expect to pay about $3-400 for that from a respected BMW specialist indy. Be warned however, if you do get the car virtually anything that goes wrong or rattles or bangs, or shimmys, you will think it was caused by the wreck repair.
