Ideas for buying 2007 BMW 328i

Hi guys,
I am planning to buy a used BMW 328i and I have shortlisted a 2007 BMW 328i. It has 52,000 miles on it, white color and everything looks and feels great. I even did a test drive. He first asked for $16,995 but I bought him down to $16,000.

But today when I ran AUTOCHECK report, it showed, "Minor Accident, Slight Damage Reported". I asked the owner and he said, it got hit in the parking lot and it was a police case as the other car was stolen. And, as the car was stolen, he did not get his car covered under insurance(Don't know how true is that Story). It got hit in rear bumper and still has few scratches as he said he did not repaired those.

Anyway, after test driving two - three 328i's, I really liked this car as its in good shape. But now I don't know if I should go for this car because of minor accident reported on car report.
I am basically worried about the car resale value after 2-3 yrs down the line.

Experts, please advice me if I should go for this car for $16,000 or how much should I ask for?

Thank You,
