Seem reasonable?

Hey guys, we are looking to upgrade my wife from her '03 325i to a pre-owned X5 (trying to keep the all Bimmer family with my 335i). Tough to find good deals on these around here (93245), but found this one. I included the CARFAX http://www.carfax.com/VehicleHistory...106%7C15%7C-90 and you can see it does have accident/damage reported, but appears to be at the dealership even before it was sold. I know that minor damage can easily happen around a dealership so good chance that this wouldn't have been anything serious. Everything else is pretty much what we are looking for. Thoughts?

Inspect it carefully, you should be able to recognize if parts of the body were removed. Check for scuffed screws, paint lines, etc.

Make sure you get it inspected (PPI) and if accetable make sure you get a really good deal. The car has been driven a while since the accident so that leads me to believe that it is running well. Good luck.

I would not purchase a car that has been in an accident. Think about when you resale or trade how much that will go against you. My 2c.
