    These cars have problems with ignition coils, misfire due to ignition failure does not identify failing cylinder and people end up replacing all the coils (expensive). I wouldn't buy this car unless it is got running smoothly. Q45 is a lot of car but seen electrical problems.

    Be careful, the injectors go bad due to ethanol (10%) in gas destroying the injector coils. The engine will run rough like a bad sparkplug. Have it checked by a competent Q45 tech before going any further. These can be expensive cars to maintain at this age.
