PSA: 2009 E90 M3 Bellevue

Definitive Motors in Bellevue are selling this car:

https://www.definitivemotors.com/aut...e-wa/65413832/

WBSPM93509E201047

The previous owner traded it in with them, and I went to see it when he was trying to sell it privately. I talked to him extensively and also saw all the service records / receipts, and drove it twice. I've now been to see it at the dealer (because they're pretty close to my office).

This dealer is the kind of dealer which will not let you test drive the car until you've agreed numbers and are ready to sign paperwork (though they will let you look at it, and start it).

- The car drives incredibly roughly, and sounds incredible rough.
- The dealer repainted the front and rear bumpers . . in the wrong shade of BMW silver! They didn't bother repainting the hood . . which had far more rock chips than the bumpers!
- They did $2k of repairs to it, but neglected to replace the cracked windshield .. and declined the suggested work to replace the hood struts (which would have cost them $89)
- They raised the asking price by $1k just after I went to see it

I would stay the hell away from this car!!

Dislike this dealership , shady and sneaky. They do have a nice selection but there business model is just not something I can support. They probably stay in business cause there are clueless people sadly
