Mein Auto: 645ci
2005 645ci

Hello I'm new to this and also looking for some opinions on a used Southern California 645ci with 144000 freeway miles.
This car it very impressive and has documents from day one...
Need help cause I'm out here from the east coast NY and would like to take this car home with me...
Any major things that I should look for? Lot of things I've read on here haves been replaced...I'm concerned of it happening again after things been replaced.
Thank you very much with any replies!!!

Take note of what repairs have been done. Maybe the big jobs have been taken care of.

Mein Auto:
I have owned same year & make with 62,000 miles for 1 year now. I love the vehicle. SO much FUN! It's now presenting me with problems that are driving me CRAZY! Most times ( idling or driving )the tach fluctuates slightly (can feel it also in the gas pedal) along with small engine surges & dips. Along with this my radio will stop briefly & present a very strange screech then come back on. I'm starting to think the car is possessed! LOL. Anyway, I put a new battery in it, no changes to be seen! I had alternator checked, no problem there. I'm needing some advise & help PLEASE!!!

Vacuum leak somewhere will get your tach to jump around
