I work for a private dealer, and unfortunately this is a very common occurrence, people are constantly trying to screw other people over,.

Or would this be the lien holder's policy that covered it when the owner in 2011 had the failure?
I know someone who's insurance covered the engine hydro locking. I was surprised but they paid up.

If it happens while driving... I've seen it covered at the shop a few times as well.

This X is going to seriously disappoint some unsuspecting buyer.

The vehicle is what it is. All that someone has to do is check it out to see if its worth of rescue and make them offer. You really do not know if the dealer cobbled this vehicle back together. This vehicle could have very well been acquired from a wholesaler or other resource. A simple conversation with the dealer as to how the vehicle was received and what work they performed specifically will clear up a whole lot of confusion. I do not feel sorry for whoever purchases this vehicle. The description says rebuilt title. That pretty much says what you are starting with.

While, I agree with you to a point. Most people aren't familiar with BMW's, let alone the e53 before they purchase one. It's going to be bought either, by some young kid who doesn't know any better, or possibly an enthusiast from another platform who isn't familiar with the e53. An e53 enthusiast wouldn't touch that for >$5000. IF it runs well and checks out motor and suspension wise that is.

On the other hand, anyone looking to purchase an older niche vehicle should do their due diligence and perform at least a modicum of research and background checks. So I guess I can see both sides of the coin... doesn't make me want to punch whoever cobbled that thing together (and the seller for misrepresenting the mileage) square in the jaw any less.

Looking at the CarFax, the Lynnwood dealer isn't going to know anything about the history. The salvage title was issued in CA which suggests the rebuild was done there. And it's been for sale for a really long time. At that price, no surprise.

At the very least... the dealer would know that the odometer is not actual miles and should state that in the advert. I agree they probably know nothing about the actual rebuild.

rebuilt title = salvage title = scrapyard parts vehicle. Anyone who buys this vehicle weather enthusiast or average retail customer should realize what this car is(essentially a vehicle that was damaged enough to go to the scrapyard and totalled out by the insurance company. Not a good purchase if you ever decide to want to sell it.
