I would be less concerned with the motor than I would about the suspension and LSD!

At Advanced M School and I thought to myself several times "I'm glad this isn't my car" and this is coming from someone who tracks.

With SO many cars on the market right now, and much cheaper, why even consider such a car?

Here is the car I was talking about. The SA hasn't even called me back so I guess I won't have to explain anything, thanks for helping me not buy this money pit!

Haha. So the SA finally called me this morning and I told him why I didn't want it. His reply: "Well would you rather believe a bunch of random people on a car forum or me?" LMAO. Of course I'd take anyone's opinion over the person trying to sell me his cat.

Why did you mention you got your information from a forum? Lol. Just act like you are smart or know what you are talking about without showing people your hand.

Tell the SA : All those random people drive m3 but you dont!

go to cars.com and find what you want, there are plenty of m3s on the market

Holy Crap! Did you see the amount of dust/dirt on the inside of that car? You can see the level of care the dealer takes with a car that they are trying to sell...the don't even try to clean it up before taking pic's.

Sorry to bump an old thread but I was looking at this car about a month ago and have some input.

The SA at Perillo actually sent me the Autocheck which only says that the vehicle was purchased at auction this last spring. Carfax from autotrader had similar info.

I am not doubting the info but how do you know this was a track car? Because autocheck/carfax lists no owner or title information? If that's the case...good for me to know going forward. Or do you have insider info?

I actually tried to negotiate them down from 58k and they wouldn't budge more than 500-1000. I was also told they could CPO the car which is not the case. They also have an similarly equiped jet black M3, 12k miles, with similarly looking vehicle reports, which may indicate a 2nd track car. They initially listed these cars at 60k i believe. They're now down to 56k and still haven't sold. Someone will unfortunately get suckered in eventually...thank god it wasn't me.

Seems Perillo BMW has gotten generally brutal reviews on here, with the occasional blip of happiness...

Followup:

I spoke to their SA about the car again and he was straight up about where it came from. Told him I could never buy it, but someone probably will, eventually :-P

I assume it was tracked or driven hard so would this pose any future problems? It was painted and refurbished at their factory so it's excellent but what about the motor or the driving that was done to it?
Never ever touch something like this ... it would be the same if you go to a brothel and pick one of the ladies of the night as your wife ... you get my drift
