26 views... no responses. Did I post this is the wrong spot? I know there's a wealth of knowledge here and I'm hoping to tap into that. Cheers!

That seems directionally correct... low mileage, CF .. hard to judge fully without pictures and some more details, such as location, service records... and 100% get a PPI, or else you are gambling big-time even with low mileage. For example, there's a thread at the top right now with someone who bought a car with a bad DCT, with only 15K miles.. need more details or else it's a guessing game

I'll post more info a little later... sincerely appreciate the response. And I'd never make a used car purchase without a PPI... I'll definitely get one.

You will get some phenomenal information and feedback on here, I promise. So much knowledge from experienced e9x enthusiasts on here, so definitely post what you get when you can and the feedback can potentially save you $ and peace of mind. One other thing to post when you can is the Vin which will help.

Yea - i bought it at 8,000 miles and it was CPOd. Anything can happen...granted i paid 50 k for it 5 years ago, it was worth the joy that it brought me 7,000 miles later.

Yeah, anything can happen... my point was that hypothetically, one could take a situation like yours (if a bad person) and try to sell the car without the buyer knowing about the issue (DCT, bearings, etc).. so basically, even if low mileage, have it checked ..
