I'll pay for your time. Send me an IM if interested.

Sure thing, pm me your phone number and I'll reach out to you. I'm quite sure a lot of people on this forum are just as knowledgable. -Jim

Is it this one?

Hey Shroom,
I hope you don't mind me posting your reply on this message board, it was fantastic information learning from you as well.

This dealer had four 1Ms, 1 VO, 2 blacks and 1 white. Best of luck Shroom and don't give up!

-Jim.

Regarding the 1 black M with the Vin# VIN: WBSUR9C59BVT47621.

If you are interested in buying the car, I can share my inspection findings to help you make a decision. Send me an PM.

Super-impressed by the level of detail the inspector provided. Also very sobering that a car with that level of work done to it would be offered as such. Goes to show that due diligence is paramount...

Shroom: do you go to that level of scrutiny when buying any used vehicle or just because it's a 1M?

be careful with these Perillo 1Ms. Most of them have a history of being BMW performance center track cars. I had investigated them in 2013. Search this forum for Perillo

Ayao,

Yes they did an excellent job looking over the car and so did Thailynal!

This is my first time buying used, since it was across the country I wanted to "trust but verify". With the 1M, it's really collectors car and I missed the boat getting it new. I want to be sure I'm getting an excellent example for the premium I'm going to pay. In the end it's a very small price for discovery. Having one of these companies look for you really is just just a smaller version of a normal PPI if you can't be there, which should always be done so they say. It's not about nit picking, it's to catch the big stuff.
