At that price you have some breathing room to have something repaired.

Mind you: repairing these cars costs terribly much so a cheap car can become a VERY expensive car.

I bought mine at 65% of its market value fully aware that it would need some stuff fixed, the list has stretched to be quite long and if I had these done at the stealer's the car would have cost me at least 110-120% of its market value.

Luckily I do some myself, get labour practically free and huge discounts on the OEM parts.

If I did not have these advantages I would never ever have boughta a 750i that "needs little work" since it never is little or cheap.

Also, electric problems can be the most annoying since this car has kilometres of wire and it is pretty tough finding out what exactly has gone wrong.
