Sign up yourself. It's tacky to expect someone to run a free Carfax for you.

It's only like $40 or something brother. If you can't afford $40, I don't think you can afford to own and maintain a BMW. No offence intended good sir.... But I believe if you go to a stealership with your VIN they might be able to run it for you.

I already own the car and I have seen other members run VINs on the forums for other people. Just seeing if somebody can help me out.

It's not about affordability, I just don't see the point if one of you guys can run it for $0.00

It's all good, spent the $40

Thanks for all of your $0.02

We're all just a bunch of jokers. If I could have helped, I would have. I've bought the carfax on 3 vehicles so far and glad I did. Saved me what looked to be a real lemon once :-)

Great choice of cars btw! Wish I could have gotten a MT :-(

I got my 540 about two months ago for SUPER cheap. $2800
Went in on the dark because of the price, haven't had a problem yet
I love this car and I'm pretty sure I will be BMW for a while.

The 420G manual trans is very rough , my buddy has a 540i/6 also and both of our transmissions take some muscle to get it into to gear when cold. Did a transmission flush with synchromax about 1K miles ago. Some improvement, but not a whole lot

Yea thats just the way it is. Second gear really clicks that first shift of the day. These things do not like the cold. But rp synchro every spring does make a huge improvement.
