Nice 328i as a first car is great! Nice looking too.

I think you should buy from a BMW certified dealership, you never know when you buy from other places. Plus, BMW will continue its service plan on the vehicle if you buy from a certified dealer.

For a BMW you should look try and get something under 40,000 miles. AND if possible ask if they have just replaced the tires. Run Flats are pretty expensive so replacing them 6,000 miles later would suck...they usually run about like $250-500 per wheel. Service won't pay for these.

My service pays for other stuff like oil and brakes. Dunno what these other people are talking about.

Good luck man! Have fun!

PS: Brakes usually don't have to be replaced yearly. Its usually every 50-60,000 miles I think...unless you brake heavily all the time lol or live in a city.
