    Buying used 2005 545I with 70,760 miles

    Hello,

    I'm looking to purchase a used BMW 2005 545I with 70,760 miles.
    I think that I'm getting a good deal on the car. The car has 1 owner and was driven in CA. I should be getting carfax by tomorrow. From the pictures I have seen, the car looks very clean from in and out. The price is also very good. My question to you people having such a high mileage, what should I ask the dealer in regards of services that are due or what has been done. Which are the important questions?

    Thank you in advance for you help,
    Evgeniy

    I own 04 545i 27K mi and have --

    and now own 3x other older BMW's. All I can say is do not expect to own this 545i on a shoe string budget. If you can not slap down a thousand for repairs with out hurting, well just think twice.

    Should I get an after market warranty on this car?

    What type of insurance did you get? Terms: is it bumper to bumper? For how many years/miles? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Covered till 2014 or 100K miles BUT my car had -

    only 24K miles going into the deal. For my money Mercury had the Best terms and the Financial Stability to back it up. Most companies I interview were just talk, a slick sales person. Mercury faxed everything I asked them for , No excuses.

    I bought a 04 545 sport this time last year with 67k on the clock and have loved it.....No real problems, other than normal maintenance and tires (which are VERY expensive). Check your carfax and if you're the least bit handy you can work on this car, too
