    A Euro shitbox is never a good deal.

  4. Look it over real well. Has it been properly maintained? Does it look like it was beaten all its life and then guy just cleaned it up to sell? Have the RTABs been changed? Look at the rear shock mounts for cracks. Has the radiator been replaced yet? What it comes down to is that a properly maintained car should be fine.

    My friends brother bought a e39 M5 for 10,000 with less than 75k on it.
    The other guy just had a lot of money and didnt care he was being lowballed because his wife was throwing fits and telling him to get rid of it.

    Doesn't seem low to me. Around this mileage there are going to be things that start to break. I have an E36 with just over 100k and stuff wears out.
