Someone, please go take a look at it and enlighten the seller that he is a crook! I'm interested to hear how it drives, considering all of the evidence indicating tampering...

Precisely why someone needs to check it out. Sad thing is someone (likely younger) will buy this X and be stuck with a lemon.

There is no may. It is NOT the correct mileage. It's likely off by 100,000 miles according to it's mileage in 2011 according to the carfax.

Well, "lemon" is the incorrect word.

Lemon refers to a vehicle that has issues during initial build that cannot be corrected after 3 attempts and/or a specific period of time (by manufacturer).

A salvage title rebuild, done poorly or otherwise, doesn't fall into the lemon category (BMW holds NO liability to this X, the "rebuilder", Dr Frankenstein does).

Where was the car located? If it's an area which floods regularly, it could very well be flood damage. If it's not, maybe it's a blown engine or trans (or both).

As a side, is engine failure/catastrophic mechanical failure a special rider on an auto insurance policy? I didn't think insurance covered things not road debris/damage/collision related?

Or would this be the lien holder's policy that covered it when the owner in 2011 had the failure?

A theft recovery with a blown engine is covered by insurance.

Could be considered a "total loss" on a +10 yr old vehicle (salvage title).

Dr Frankenstein can purchase dirt cheap, swap another wrecked/salvage title M62 motor (4.4?) in, and sell as a "rebuilt title".

Record flooding rains in California the same month this X was given "total loss"/non-collision status, coincidence???
