Exclamation seeking help/advice

Hey!

Came across this ad on kijiji; and have been following it for the past few weeks. Tried to get some information from the seller; but did not get much of a response. The price has been steadily dropping; and even with the higher K's, I think the asking price is more than reasonable. But after finding other ads with the same phone # and contact info from a dealership; I'm wondering if this might be a scam. It's a long drive for me to the GTA, and without knowing if it's legit makes it hard to justify the trip to look...

Has anyone looked into this car at all? Any info you could share?

Thanks in advance!

Free lunch, mouse trap, if too good to be true, etc etc. Let your common sense prevail.

I'd really appreciate that; but I don't want to put anyone through any trouble. I kinda figured that someone might have already looked at this car before. At the price; i'm thinking there must be something majorly wrong with it; otherwise it should have sold pretty quickly being a sport & premium package!

And if there's nothing wrong with it; I may have just found my next adventure!!!

Looks pretty sketchy to me. The listing itself is just all over the place. They also spelt west wrong in the location. I'd be careful

I'm surprised that nobody has gone to look at it though; just out of pure curiosity!

Well I got an e-mail response from the owner. So confusing! I'm now thinking major scam. Too bad though...

Here's the e-mail:

You've received the following reply to your "2000 BMW 323I,PREMIUM-SPORT PACKEGE! ONE OWNER PRIVAT SALE" Ad on Kijiji:

From: kees_hound@yahoo.com
Hello. Was wondering if you could answer a few questions about your 323i for sale? You mentioned that the car is e-tested but not safetied; do you know what may be needed? Has this car been involved in any accidents? Any mechanical issues? Has the car been repainted at all?
Would it be possible to arrange a test-drive, and possibly have the car checked over by a mechanic?

You said that this car is a one owner, private sale? I noticed that you have another ad for a 525i that says it's a dealer ad. Is the 323 infact a private sale, or being sold on a lot?

I appologize for so many questions, but I live a fair way out of the city, and don't want to make such a long trip to find out that this car is not what it's advertised to be. Thanks for any information!

Tony

You can respond to kees_hound@yahoo.com by replying to this email

Good luck, and thanks for using Kijiji.


Fil; if you don't mind me asking how do you know it's been in an accident? Have you had a chance to see the car, or know some of it's "history"?
