I just would never trust any rebuilt... For theft reasons and others

All i'm trying to say is: how would you "not trust any rebuilt" if it doesnt even show as one! It can have clean title but still be thru a lot of sh#t...SO the best thing is check evey car you are thinking of buying (by the best mechanic/bodyshop you know!)...Because there are WAY too many people (includind dealers!) out there trying to make quick $$$...

I actually won't buy a used car unless it's from an actual dealership (no used car lots for me) simply because I worked in an exhaust shop for a while and the owners of the lots would admit in plain sight to us that they rolled this vehicle back 70,000KM and are selling it for a much larger profit, and blah blah blah...

See, most of them have been caught, shut down, caught shut down, and they just keep restarting... But a dealership? It'd be the end of any dealership if they got caught... Murder for the automobile chain...

And I always check my own cars And then take it to a mechanic if I noticed anything wrong so I can snag a quote and get $$$ knocked off the price. That's how I got my E36 dirt cheap... Got a quote of like $3000 worth of work needed to be done, took it to the guy, knocked 3K off the price, drove home, fixed it myself for $250 and then sold it for $2000 more than what I paid (the next week I might add)...

Now I just need to find an E34 540 with a nikasil engine and get him to knock $5000 off for a new engine, hahaha.

You should be carefull EVEN at the actual dealer!!! A few years ago my friend in LA was telling me about BMW and MB dealers getting closed because of rolled back odometers!
I remember a case where in Quebec there was a Toyota Celica sold as a demo vehicle (by dealer!) that turned out to be "write off" from Ontario!!! It was a big deal and got on TV...But there are many other cases that are not found....

Can you actually turn the reader back? Years ago, i used to work in a bike shop. We had an analog odometer from an exercycle lying around looking like it wanted to be opened, so i took it apart tryng to rollback the reading...but no go.

If I can touch the numbers of an odometer I can roll it back, nevermind if I take it apart...

Electronic ones aren't hard either.
