I ran a carfax on my 94 325i to find that in 96 it showed 84k miles then in 98 registered with 42k miles. I called BMW dealership and was able to determine through service records, and tracking down the previous owner, that the 84k miles was a typo by the department that handles registration and it should have been 24k in 96. I pointed this out to the dealer (non-BMW dealer) and he said that it had to be confirmed, reported and straightened out before he could legally sell the car, we made a deal, I paid a deposit, and 1 month later the carfax report was corrected by the state of Texas and I bought the car. So try to put together a chronological service history, try to get a hold of the last owner, and tell the dealer the problem on the carfax report.

How was the carfax report corrected by the state of Texas (i.e. where was it documented that the mileage was really 24k and not 84k)?

Rgds,
Norm
