If they have a nice stack of receipts don't worry about it. If there is no history be careful. I bought a 535i once that was a "good deal". Turned out that no routine maintenance was ever done, it had been in several wrecks, etc, etc. I I finally traded it in on another car after spending $$. I found out about carfax.com and saw all the owners. As it turns out it keeps swapping owners about every 1 to 2 years.

i am currently in pursuit of an m3. it was carfaxed [thanks frank] and it looks good. nice low mileage etc etc. BUT there have been 4 owners. my first instinct tells me "uh oh" but what do you think? the owner TOLD me there were 4 owners. so its a good thing hes honest, but do you think 4 is too much?
