Hi,

I am out in Alberta and was looking at a 2001 540/6 with 32K km out in the Toronto area. Out here we hear stories about the amount of salt used over there. Is it really that bad?

Since 2001, the goverment has actually used LESS salt than in previous years because of environmental concerns.
You'll have to find out if the car is winter driven at all, because some bimmer owners never winter drive there car. Even if it was though, 2 years in the winter, even if salted, isn't too bad. If you buy it, get it rustchecked, and undercoated and you should be fine.
