QUestion on Carfax for an 11 M3

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I'm looking at buying a 2011 M3 used and saw an interesting one but the Carfax showed the car was sold at an auction as below. I'm not an expert so what does this mean? Should I be cautious of it?

(Yes I am looking here too, I deleted car specifics from carfax so as not to break forum rules)

Yes, that is odd with that low of miles, unless it was an executive car or something. My question is what happened in the first 5k miles?

Btw, I live over in Naples and I just decided to sell my 2010 E92, it has under 13k miles, The car is perfect.

Not sure what you are looking for, PM if you want the details or want to come and take a look.

Could be a Trade Assist - have the VIN checked out at a dealer...

if the dealership is near Orlando, FL it is probably this coupe? It was in average condition at the auction, can't tell you much else about it...other then what it sold for.

An 2011 with 5K miles auctioned off? Certainly doesn't smell right at all. If everything was fine it'd have been bought and certified by a BMW dealership IMO. Find a different one man; plenty to choose from. I woldn't consider an auctioned car unless it was a steal.. and it's not. Good luck.
