You got it. This is the trick to make it work. All BMWs I have owned worked this way; always pull up twice.
Unfortunately most people don't know about it.

Congratulations. Great car at a great price.
Now when you say out the door, you don't mean tax included. Right?
Otherwise, I would say you "stole" the car!

If you are talking about squeaking, it could be from the brakes, specially if the pads are new. Other source(s) of noise are the wheel bearings.

Looks like a decent system except I am not sure if it will fit under the chassis. For my Z4 I had to find a very low profile jack.

Great advice. You can always do better than the dealer trade-in value if you sell the car yourself. Even if you have to sit on it for a couple of months.
Congrats on a great deal on a great car....
