Portland PPI

I'm planning to buy a M3 in the Portland area. Any recommendation on a good shop for a PPI?

I'm in the Seattle area so I would probably buy the car unseen if the PPI comes clean.

I would suggest they just take it to the BMW dealer there for a buyers inspection

Called Portland BMW and they quoted me $299 for a detailed inspection. They said it will take about 3 hours and I will get a 3 page report.

If it's truly the ///M for you (color combo and options) and you dont have the time to get down to PDX then its worth it just for the piece of mind.

Is $300 normal for a PPI tho?

Are you buying the M3 we just got in stock; it's a GORGEOUS car? (I work at BMW PDX)

I don't see any M3s at Portland BMW. There's 2 at the Kuni dealer but I'm looking at 1 that's a non-BMW dealership in Portland.

I don't know what "Portland BMW" is... At BMW Portland though we just got in a 2010 Coupe that's loaded with every option; it probably hasn't come up on our site yet.

I don't want to say much more though as I'm not an advertiser and I don't want to get anyone in trouble.

Cool. Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep a look out for it if I can't close a deal on one before it comes in.

Yeah, back when I was shopping and almost bought a used M3, I called a dealer in Ohio for a PPI quote and it was a lot less than $300. I don't recall the exact price, but it was $150-200.
