2012 M3 E93 @ BMW of Cape Cod

Hi NE M3 owners, I need some help on researching the history of a M3 E93 at BMW of Cape Cod. The car fax report of this vehicle indicates:

1. The car has 1,200 miles before it was sold to an actual title-owner. Do you think this car was used as a showroom vehicle? Do you think the dealership used it as a loaner car?

2. What is the reputation of BMW Gallery at Norwood, MA? Does anyone have a connection with the dealership? I just want to find out more about this car.

3. The car also suffered an engine sensor issue before it was sold. Did any of you have any engine sensor issue? Is it a big deal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ed Reynolds is the parts manager there. He may be able to lead you into the right direction about the car.. The cape dealership seems to be having a hard time selling the car? Been there since October.

Contact Steve Richards. He is the Dinan rep and a good friend of mine. Tell him Andrew Danieli told you to call him.

NORWOOD is a great dealer and they did alot of must custom work. They under went some managerial changes over the last several months, but they do a ton of business there.

Steve is a great guy and knows his stuff and will be honest with you.

I think e93's are not in as high a demand as e92's and e90's

...and it was put up for sale in Oct.. bad timing right before the winter for a convertible..

Norwood BMW had been pretty good to me in the past but my relationship soured with them recently when they tried to rip me off and charge me way more for a repair that it actually should cost.. I called them out on it though and they "readjusted".. This is the second time this happened with them so i don't trust them anymore.

my car is out of warranty, but I have been to both Norwood and Norwell. I like the Norwell guys much better.
