Yea I know they had all kinds of troubles with those...called my BMW mechanic he said that the car no matter what condition of that year...should be only about $1000 to $1200 unless it was a frame up restoration...that seems might low for a car this clean

I agree that 1200 is a bit low for a pristine model. That low of mileage is suspicious, esp at a dealer.

well if some old lady owned it that is prolly about right for miles. It could have sat for several years as well and not driven.

I personally think it is a little high. I would only go 2k but that is me.
