Buying a BMW online?

I am looking at the purchase of a BMW from a used luxury car dealer in the state of Georgia. On google there are reviews that range from great to terrible. The car I'm looking at looks good and the Carfax looks OK...how can I be sure? I live in NC.

Sure of what? Put the VIN in autotrader.com to see what it is worth.

i just bought my very first bmw from a dealer in GA, i'm in NYC. overall the process was easy. I of course drove the exact model i wanted and asked the dealer lots of questions. i even got a very reasonable price on shipping. i think you just have to do your homework with the VIN decoder, carfax, and of course your feeling about the sales rep you're working with. You can ask them to send you videos of the car or even drive it for you.

NC isn't all that far from Georgia.....grab a good friend / significant other and make a weekend road trip out of it. Worst case, you have a nice weekend drive, best case, you drive back in your new (to you) BMW!!
