1988 e30 bmw m3 - scam!
 
Wanted to pass this along so no one does business with this A-hole.. Owner is Frank from Premier auto in New Windsor, NY

http://premierautosales32.com/detail...ak0309j2197324

Was talking to this gentleman last night about this car. I figured if it were legit, it would be a decent deal.

I asked the dealer for the CF and they said it's on the website.. turns out their link doesnt work, so I took matters into my own hands and ran the CF.

there was 2... not one, but 2 odometer roll backs. In 2010, they rolled it back from 201k miles to 101k..then in 2014 from 155k to 22k miles!

Seller is convinced this was "human error" and is working with CarFax to remove this.

Since, I work for BMW... i said let me check the vehicle history... Turns out, it is indeed fraud.. the car had 71.5k miles back in 1993!!!!

BUYERS BEWARE! Dude is a scammer and wants to burn someone.

Will post CF report in a few minutes. :thumbsdown:

I can confirm that this car has NO WHERE near 22K miles on it. Unsure what is going on here but those pictures are identical to a car I was looking at earlier in the year. The seller I was speaking with at the time was moving and looking to get rid of this car. Car pictured had something north of 150K when I was looking at it. Ill try and look though my emails when I get home to find more info.

Found my old text stream with the owner and shot him a message. He did indeed sell the car to that dealer but seems unaware of the ad.

I had suspicions when I saw the carpet, seemed too good to be true.

You know what's really ****ed, ebay ad clearly states the mileage as not 22K. Hope that dealer burns to the ground
