BMW's are generally excellent cars with solid german engineering. What you need to look out for is signs of abuse. BMW's are quite unlike toyota's cos they hate and react badly to unmitigated abuse. I do not know whether this bimmer has been used locally or not but you need to make sure that car does not have unattended mechanical issues and if it does, you have to make sure that you budget for it and attend to it promptly. Now you could abuse your bimmer and get away with it as long as you can pay for the repairs Anyhow, Bimmers are very much like Benzes and the parts are more costly however repairs are far in between if you are an informed and knowledgeable owner. A good and competent mechanic is a must !!. The irony of it all is that most bimmers in lagos are ultimately destroyed by ill-trained and grossly incompetent mechanics (and the car gets blamed!!). In parts of the world where Bimmers are more familiar and competent mechanics are more available, you could run around in a Bimmer until you are blue in the face and your tail falls off - the car will be waiting to get started the next morning!. I hope this helped.
