Lots of high mileage cars from what I see in SF Bay Area's CL.

What do you consider "high mileage"? If it's less than 200k and the car's been well maintained (with receipts to back it up), I pay no attention to the mileage on a BMW.

maybe the temp needle looked a little past noon and the oily engine cover. Yea probably just finding reasons because its pretty nice.

Its not the CL ad of the day though.

Enjoy... http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/cto/3319284719.html

The temp needle is where it should be. It's just the angle of the camera, since the temp gauge is off to the right relative to the position of the camera.

What concerns me about the m3 is that he is driving it with the fuel light on,good-bye fuel pump. Always makes me wonder if the seller kept the vehicle properly maintained when they do little things like that.

Yeah, I think I've let the fuel light turn on maybe twice since I've owned the car, but I think 99% of people don't know that doing so is harmful. Hard to say if people who let their gas get that low are also the same people who put off oil changes, etc.

Not too bad for those wheels. Maybe not.

I have to own one of those old 5-Series at some point. Soooo nice... I wonder if that one is a manual or automatic, however.
