New to the forum. Was planning to buy a 330xi soon. Gonna have a look at a few soon. Was wondering if anyone can help me regarding what all to look for while inspecting the car and during the test drive and all. This is so coz the car(s) in mind are not CPO, they are from other dealers and all. I was also wondering whether I could get any info about BMW specialists in the toronto area and all, who can get the car inspected and all.

Bring it in to any BMW dealership for an inspection. Mind you this will cost you, so only do this to the car you are REALLY interested in. You can also bring in the vin# of the vehicle to the dealership and they can let you know the history of the car.

That sounds good Bliss. Though I have already got this carfax history report of the car and it seems OK. I was wondering that whether how much would the BMW dealership would charge me for inspecting the car. Will the dealer from whom I am planning to buy the car agree to this ?

Secondly are there any private BMW specialists in the GTA who can accompany me and have a look at the car for a nominal charge ?

You have to ask the dealer whom you're purchasing the car off of if they don't mind you taking the car to get inspected...they shouldn't care if they know you are serious to buy. As in private BMW techs, you can call up Charlie and ask what he can do to help 416-949-5701. He is a member here by the name of bimmersport and works on bmw's for a living. The problem is, he is in the GTA area...just noticed that you're from Ottawa.
