How about giving us more to go on than one photo and a price--such as a link to the ad?

Many is the car that looks fine on the surface but is a mechanical shambles. At $4,000 for a 2011 328xi, I'd lay odds this one falls into that category, but it could as easily be a sound example devalued by high mileage.

Phone number is a residence in Multnomah - not the typical scam method (disposable cell number) - Give it a call. Don't wire anything. Scan the car for codes. Hire an expert for a PPI. Search the VINcheck & NICB free dB's for a potential total loss or flood vehicle.

Listing doesn't show mileage. Odd the car has no rear license plate - scammers on CL use this approach often as they list the same car all over the country. You won't know till you call and then if it is local check it out. $4k is not unreasonable depending on condition, options and mileage. - Especially if the seller used Edmunds:

Ask for a picture of the passenger side of the car.

I love how they always say a car is "loaded with all options" even when it visibly isn't. :)

Call them... I bet, seller, 5 sentences in: "Now here's for the bad ..."

It's probably more like 'Send me a down payment and I'll hold the car for you.'

Whoever this joker is - he's not returning a call, or responding to an email.

And so...my perusal continues. Im done w/ Craigslist for this sort of thing.

It could be someone who posted their buddy’s car as a prank. I once tried to buy a Mini Cooper around the corner from me and the person answered the phone and said the add was put up as a prank by friends. SMH
