2009 - 750 LI - Price to go to be true?

I found a 2009 750 LI for sale with 30K miles for 29K...seems like a too good of a deal right? I checked the car fax and the only things I saw was the following:

At 5K miles

Drive belts replaced
Power steering pump replaced

At 20K miles
rake fluid flushed/changed
Cabin air filter replaced
Oil and filter changed
Front wiper blades/refills replaced
Fuel pressure checked
Power steering hose(s)/line(s) replaced
Recommended maintenance performed
Fuel injection system checked

At 24K
Power steering hose(s)/line(s) replaced
Front brake rotor(s) replaced
Front brakes serviced
Rear brakes serviced/adjusted
Recommended maintenance performed

From what I can tell it was used as a service vehicle for a BMW dealer in FL.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, any advice for an aftermarket warranty?

Thanks,
Sam

a 750 as a service vehicle? I doubt that. the service items seem very strange, something is off - - if something is too good to be true, it usually is

I paid double that for my 09' 7 back in April this year, with 29K miles on it. For 29K, is more like a price for 07 750. You might really look into the title ( salvage/rebuit, lemon ) etc..

Thanks for the advice.

I ran the Car Fax and there is no salvage or flooded title. It's clean.

The car is for sale by a company that owns a BMW dealership, so I'm wondering why they wouldn't just make it a CPO car?


My concern is that this car may be a lemon and I don't really want to get into something like that.

Yea go spend the 1-200 bucks and have a mechanic spend a solid hour or two and look it over, small price to pay. Someone is loosing money on that if it isn't a lemon/salvage/flood and dealers don't make money on losses

This is way less than trade in value. Go to a BMW dealer and ask the trade in value using VIN.

there is no way that is real. If it were someone could just buy it and take it to carmax for a quick big profit. Something is definitely wrong.

After owning a car dealership for 3 years (I sold my dealership and now only maintain a license to buy my own cars) I can personally tell you the deal would either have to be a scam, fraud, or a wrecked vehicle. 09 Lemon cars aren't even selling for that low. I wouldn't just ask a mechanic, I'd ask the person selling it to "paint check" the vehicle and video them doing it. Additionally, if you can post the VIN I can tell you if it was sold at auction.
