Pre-Purchase Inspection in Dallas Area

Hello all,

I am a member from Cleveland is about to purchase a M Roadster from Dallas. I have made the deal but i am worried to buy a car without being inspected. I called all the BMW dealers in Dallas area and they are unwilling to do the PPI. Do you guys know any local indy shop that is reputable to do the PPI?

Thanks!

Thanks so much!!! BMW Dallas was willing to do the PPI yesterday so I called in today to make an appointment, then they refused to do so.

I scheduled the PPI appointment at Ultimate Bimmer Service. It has good feedback from guys in both e90post and e46fanatics. Do you know anything about this shop?

Also, do you know how long the PPI will take? I called several indy shops and dealers and they all said it should take 1 to 2 hours. But the guys on forum said it may take 4 to 5 hours.

Anyway, I switched to Autoscope as the dealer called saying that I shouldn't go to Ultimate Bimmer Service as it's a residential building.

Thanks for your info!!! Hopefully everything is fine and I can pick it up this weekend.

Yes, the guy at Autoscope said the car is in great condition, he could tell the car is being taken care of very well, always garaged, etc. The mechanics are fine. Probably just need an oil change and replace coolant as the car is MY2006 but only have 11k miles on.

I am coming down on Saturday to pick up this beauty. Can't wait
