  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi all, First time poster, so forgive me, I haven't learned protocol yet. I had my semi-faithful E53 for about 9 years and decided to trade it on a 2011 535i in September. Well this week, while I was parked on the street, one of my neighbors plowed into it (pretty hard). Of course their...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I know that when service is performed and recorded that it shows the service performed and mileage in a CarFax report. But how is Carfax seeing my daily mileage? Every day mileage on Carfax site goes up a few more miles. Is my car reporting this information? If so, can it be turned off...
  3. General BMW Questions
    If most are not aware. BMWNA recieves data from all dealers that includes: Work done, Date work is done, Mileage on vehicle when work was done. All this data for each visit is forwarded From Dealer to BMWNA , then (I suspect sold) to Car Fax and maybe others. That data is then publicly availble...

    I found a lease-return 2012 335i convertible that I was ready to buy as a CPO car with 25K miles. The CarFax was clean and we negotiated a price. Then I checked AutoCheck and found an accident reported. [Thanks for nothing CarFax] I called the BMW dealer and they said they would investigate...

    I know this is not correct thread, but I'm looking for any inputs you can provide. Today, I was selling my 2012 Altima to an individual pending credit union approval (to get a new 328i), which I thought there would not be any problem with it. Late this afternoon the individual called me and...

    I am planning to buy this 2010 528 xdrive for 32000USD. It is a bmw CPO vehicle. Need your advice about the carfax report to see if there's anything unusual or wrong (bold). I couldn't find any other vehicle which has gone through so many services, so I am little concerned. Thanks in advance...

    I am looking into buying a 2009 X5 and I found a nice one but when I checked its Carfax report it shows that the previous owner took it to the dealer every 3000 miles... my previous experience with a BMW was more like a visit every 10-15K miles... Is that a sign that there is something wrong...

    BMW CPO Woes - CPO Rescinded? - VIN-check "loophole" or scam? - Carfax fails me too! Sorry about the length of this post. Only read it if you care about used car consumer's rights as this relates to buying a BMW CPO-described car that really may or may not be a BMW CPO even when a dealership...

  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I was wondering if anyone can help me to understand the type of car these are from the carfax report? The dealer has seven cars with similiar carfax reports. All registered commercial vehicles. No service records at all. How would you interpret this car fax report and rate these cars? All...

    Hoping to buy an 08 550i CPO soon. Looking carefully at listings all over US. One interesting listing in particular is in Chicago, but the CarFax has me concerned. Can anyone comment on what I should do or how I should be thinking about it? Details: computer module checked (@6months)...

    I had my wife's X5 in for service and bought 2008 528i PP, Cold Weather, Black Sapphire, Black Dakota, Xenon's and CPO. It has a little over 39,000 miles on it, so there is 11,000 of maintenance left. Carfax was clean and other than a few scrapes on the passenger rocker panel (plastic), I can...

    Hey, possible E90 buyer here. I am looking at a 2006 325i CPO. The car fax and autocheck looks very clean. But how can identify if all fenders, bumpers have not been painted after an accident? Also for the car in question, has VIN sticker on right shock housing (near windsheild washer...
