Looks nice. Only problem with Salvage is its harder to sell. Also if there is something that a dealer might fix out of warranty you may be out of luck.

But for 22K I would.
Considering that's so cheap North of the boarder.

im pretty much a DIY guys with ma dad so, i dno. im thinking maybe taking it to the dealer there and having it inspected, how much do they charge, and normally will the car dealer take responsibility if BMW says something is wrong.

I doubt they will take responsibility because it is a salvage. More or less a "buy as is"
But definitely get it checked out.
Btw wouldn't it have "theft recovery" under the title not "Salvage"?

You can get an actual BMW representative to come out and check the car out. I remember reading about it in my issue of Roundel. Try searching for it and I'll try to find it myself later today.
