Has anyone bought an M5 at the wholesale auction?

How does it work? Can you see the car first or just have to rely on the wholesaler's opinion?

Had a deal done last week here in Dallas only to find the car had been wrecked. Find a car from a reputable dealer orate least have it checked by one, cheapest insurance you'll buy on this car.

I have purchased 5 cars from auctions and never had a single issue. You can view the cars before hand and you can run autochecks/carfax reports before they go on the block. If you know cars and know where to look for damage you can find signs. Also good rule of thumb, low mileage on these cars is a much safer bet.
