Can anyone take a look at a car?

I am looking to buy a e92 that is up in Lewiston, ID. I do not have time to fly up there and take a look at it myself. If anyone lives around that area, can you take a look at the car and get a inspection done on it by a indy shop? Of course I will compensate for your time.

I'd just find a shop locally that could do a PPI.

It's Lewiston, Idaho. There are about 5 BMWs in the entire city. Finding even a half decent indy shop for german cars is going to be interesting. People still say "git er done" there. They thought they were big time when the Walmart came to the area.

The closest BMW dealers are either Spokane or Boise, both of which are at least 2 hours away.

Yea, that is what I was afraid of. It looked as if it was a small city on google maps.

Oh No! If only other cars had similar points of failure like BMW's. Bushings, Cooling System, Tires, Brakes, drivetrain and AC? Surely only BMW's have such systems.

It's a town of like 30-40k people, it's not Amish Country. I'm sure there's a mechanic there that can put down their banjo for an hour and give this car a proper look.
