Pre-Purchase Inspections

If you're considering the purchase of a pre-owned BMW, a pre-purchase inspection is a wise decision. We can give you a clear understanding of the car's overall condition and point out specific issues that will need to be addressed. The benefits to you are:

  • We can protect you from purchasing a vehicle with hidden problems and requiring expensive repairs.
  • We provide you with an estimate that will help you negotiate the best price with the seller. We perform a comprehensive inspection and road test.

 

 For an additional cost we can perform additional test such as : compression test, a/c system test ,electrical test...etc in the event there are some problems with the car and the seller tells you something you are not clear.

Beyond the basic inspection described above, we can investigate specific items in greater detail if needed. Let's say, for example, you've found a car you like but the air conditioning doesn't work. The seller tells you, “it just needs a Freon refill.” Do you believe him? We can test the A/C system thoroughly and tell you what the problem really is.
