You buying from a BMW dealer? Are they both coming with CPO warranty, which takes you to 6yr/100K on major components. This can be important on the Turbo models. As long as they are both under warranty, you can ask if the maint plan up to 100K can be added to the car at this time. That way everything is covered. The dealer should be able to pull the repair history on both cars and tell you what was done to both cars. If they are private sale cars, then see if the seller can get you the repair history from the dealer. I don't have the turbo model so I can't comment on the mechanical reliability of a 2008 vs 2009. At least with a 2009, BMW had one more year to get it right.

Lot's to consider. Good Luck.
