Vehicle History

When you have the BMW inspected the repair shop will be able to run VIN checks to see the vehicle's history using services such as CARFAX or otherwise. This will let you know of the vehicle's service history and check for things such as accidents, odometer fraud and flood damage.

Current Condition

The next thing a BMW auto repair mechanic will do during a pre-purchase inspection is check the current condition of the vehicle. Every system will be gone through to see if anything needs immediate attention. This includes the brakes, steering, suspension, electronics, safety features, cooling system and more.

Future Needs

Based on the findings of the reports and inspections the technician will be able to make suggestions based on what needs to happen now, and how far out you are from other services. This way you'll know that in about 10,000 miles you will have to replace the suspension, or provide some other warning about an upcoming necessary maintenance item or service.
