    "...some small signs of ware shown..." LOL I wonder what's the story behind why this turd has such low miles. Old Lady owner maybe?

    Thank you, kind sir. Always on the lookout! Scary thing is when this sells, I might see it around.

    that m6 is indeed a lot of car for 6k. the chances are pretty good that the rough idle is something much more than a tune up. what is the likelihood the owner didn't take it to a shop before putting it up for sale at such a low price?

    before my wife and i met, she bought a used 2007 525i with 90k miles. unfortunately, someone did the oil changes at the factory recommended 15k interval. the insides were coked up pretty good and the vanos oil passages were clogged. that car was a nightmare from a maintenance perspective. the only way to fix that problem is to pull the head off.

    If I had $6000 to burn I'd consider actually burning that car.

    Well at best they're hideous and very expensive to maintain and repair, so it follows that they depreciate terribly. That one is probably the cheapest example in the country though and won't be the cheapest once the repairs and neglected maintenance are done.
