If you're still interested in the car, try getting a CarFax report (available thru For $20, it will at least give you the car's registration/title history.

I backed off from getting a 735i 5-speed after finding out from CarFax that the car had been in a dealer auction 2 months prior. That conflicted from the seller's story that he got the car from a relative.

Keep looking, there are lots of good cars out there. It might take months to find the right combination of miles, history and price.
