Might be because the rust is likely to be 10x worse up there as posted by fellow Canucks.

That said, a $900 runner is almost a no brainer if you have space/time/money for a project.

Actually, cars il Alberta have pretty much no rust. Compared to Quebec, where tons of salt are used on the roads.
Yeah it's really tempting to buy it hehe but I already have one X5 and one E39. I'll wait until I stumble upon black interior at least

Lol the guy messaged me, nobody bought it yet. One guy showed up and tried replacing the cam sensors and it didn't work. I also know that the fuel pump is working. I guess not that many things can cause a crank no start condition. I'm kinda curious. At least I can check compression and pull codes with INPA. Any ideas welcome before tomorrow

Spark plugs were totally flooded, engine had no compression, even though the chain was fine and turning with engine cranking. Piston rings must've been damaged. Needless to say I passed
