I too would not buy based on carfax alone.

Use a BMW dealer to give a complete exam to the car. Costs about $ 120. You will get a written report on official BMW paper. Its great for you and for negotiating the price down.
I've done this on all 3 of the BMWs I've owned and never had a regret. You don't have to buy a car while blindfolded.
Go ahead and buy new and feel good while taking the hit on immediate depreciation of $ 8-12K. Maybe you can throw that kind of money away. I can't and don't have to to get a fine used BMW.
