She is asking 6g's flat!!!

Comes only with 3 winter tires full thread. plus the spare which is a winter tire so 4 in total I guess but no spare.

The mechanic is her husband! I didnt really push to see service records. But they claim they could get some reciepts.

This car was in a accident and the eninge and a whole lot of other things were replaced at Maranello BMW!!!(insurance covered everything)
The previous owner who was a father with kids in the car at the time, steared the car into a pole so his kids wouldnt get a side impact.

So the young lady stated that the engine actually has less then 200.000km because of the motor replacement...

FWIW: I bought a 540i with 280,000 km. The most recent previous owner did plenty of maintenance (or more accurately fixing) while he had it, but the rest of the ownership records are non-existent. Every time I come across something that is a question mark, I have to make my own decisions about what needs replacement and what doesn't.

Personally I might have found a little less murky history if I had to go back and do it over again. When you're talking accidents, engine swaps, and other major work there are a lot of questions raised.

I didn't understand the bit about the tires ...
