that said, beverly hills bmw said that they canNOT run the key for me since i'm not the owner.
Not sure about the power rear window button. Maybe it's the top down or top up button. One tap of the down button to let the window down and a second hit for the top....same for up. Sounds like it could work to me. As far as running the key. You don't have a good relationship with a S/A that will take care of these type of request? Man you would be amazed at what a case of beer and a few other odds and ins will do for your relationship at the dealer .........Phil

For what its worth, I would not get a used BMW that didn't come with CPO. In my 645 I have had probably $5000+ dollars worth of work done, all covered under CPO/or original warranty. My 645 had the entire electronics stack go up which needed shipped over from Germany..that would have been nice and expensive had the car been out of warranty. Just a personal warning

Price to me seems reasonable, that is what they are going for here. Hell, coupes w/CPO are going for $50-$52,000.

Gmorning! So I'll have coverage for 1 more year / 22K miles. At that point, I could always dump the car or buy coverage. But your point/warning is well taken.

Curious, though, what year was your 645? I'm hoping it was a first-year run, i.e., 2004?

Yeah 2004 but the errors I had spanned the entire 645 time before the 650 came online If you start to notice any issues with iDrive...get to the dealer and have the stack changed out.

Now I'm big on buying and dumping cars, but I don't know that you would want to run out and pay top dollar for a used 645 to dump it less then a year later

There's no way i'm doing that deal without seeing the "medical history". If there's nothing to hide they should have no problem with "running the key" for you.

My advice is to walk away if they don't give you the info.

Ja, you've had 4 different cars since I got on this board. Perhaps 5, if I missed one.

Never paid $50K for one of them though, highest one was my 911, and that was $39,000 when I bought it.
