3. Then ask some questions about the body: is the car repainted, is any corrosion (BMW usually rots on the ground strike), was any accident, the condition of the thresholds (the presence of rotten sill talking about the state of the vehicle as a whole).
The car body is the biggest problem, which is necessary to look first of all, if you decide to buy a used car. Everything else is simply repaired and not expensive, but if the body has started to rust, it is a big problem that will rise again and again, no matter how well it is patched. Who will remove everything from the body and send it by sandblasting, and then re-paint it.
4. Ask about the motor state. What is the oil consumption of 10 000 km? (More than 5 liters can be considered critical). Is there knocking in the engine? (It is the reason to measure compression of the motor and to assess the cost of repairs). Do fluids leak? (It should not be if a good care of the car was).
