If you decide to pull the trigger, since the car is well under 50K miles, you also may want to consider purchasing an extended warranty (or at least a maintenance warranty). As for the SMG, I like it and have had ZERO problems. There seems to be a bias against this system, but it strikes me that that's all about personal preference. There's nothing wrong or catastrophic occuring with the SMG.

First and foremost, have the car looked at by a BMW mechanic!
I haven't gotten it checked but I will definitely get it check by an authorized dealer mechanic to make sure it is kosher. That's what I am worried about actually; has the modifications effected the warranty, will also find that out.

How much should I be expecting to spend for an extended warranty and/or a maintenance warranty?

Thank you for defending the SMG, it definitely makes me feel more confident about the car now.
