This is to warn any potential buyers of this 2001 BMW 740iL, being sold by a man named Darrell Edward Holmes. He lives in Chino Hills ,Ca.
On Friday May 24th, 2013 I met with Darrell to view his BMW VIN: WBAGH83401DP27277. The car was clean but leaked oil after the test drive. I was still interested. I inquired about any previous body and/or paint work and Darrell stated that the car had only one incident and it was isolated to the rear bumper only. Mr Darrell Holmes stated that he was the original owner and purchased the car new, so he should know all the history of the car.
over the weekend I did some research within the help of some friends in the business and ascertained that the car that mr. Darrell Holmes is representing as a one small incident car has actually been to Marcos Auto Body in San Gabriel, Ca a total of three times. In 2012 for a $2,000 rear bumper repair. In 2011 for a $3,000 repair and in 2008 for a whopping $10,000 collision repair.
When confronted with this new found information, Mr Darrell Holmes denied my claim, refused to put in writing that the had not been to the shop 3 times and then hung up on me. He refuses to return my security deposit, refuses to sell me the car as he can be held liable for fraud and broke our building sales contract.
Well, since there was a fraudulent activity on Darrell's behalf, that would render the contract null and void, however I am still entitled to a refund of my initial deposit.
i am posting this up to warn anyone looking at this vehicle to do your part and verify. mr Darrell Holmes lied about the car to garner the sale. He is using my inquiries to twist the story making it look like I a backing out of the sale. The facts are clear and posted up here for you to make your own educated decision.
His ad is listed on eBay and cars.com. Let him know that he is on here.
