    Considering M850i purchase - is this carfax history an issue?

    As the post title says. We are previous BMW owners looking to return to the family, and I've identified an M850i Gran Coupe (2020) that I am considering for purchase. The price is decent, and the car drove well. The advert mentioned it has new tires and new brakes, and that got me curious since the car only has about 10k miles on it. It looks like the car was driven for three months in 2020, and has since changed hands over and over. Would you run? It makes me wonder why.

    Thanks. I didn't post there because it seems there's no activity in that model section but maybe someone will see it.

    If I'm reading the CarFax correctly, there were five owners in the first 16 months of it's existence.

    I'd wonder too. Definitely a PPI by a very competent shop is called for.

    Yeah, it was driven by an owner for 3 mos, then sold. The others are all dealerships that have bought it and had it for 3 to 4 mos, then moved it on when it didn't sell.

    For sure we would have it pp'd as well as adding an extended warranty.

    This is probably too late to impact your decision, but.... I've had my G15 since March 2020, and love it. However, I had to change the 2 front tires after about 30000 km due to (according to the tire shop and several internet forums) improper alignment. The tires wore down to cords on the extreme inside 2cm of the tires, while the rest of the tire still had 5mm tread left. I caught it before anything bad happened, but I got documentation with the car that it had been aligned by the importer before I bought it.
