Listen, a used car is worth what someone thinks its worth. You seem to be pretty set. I don't think it's a bad deal.

I would certainly ask them about CPO. If they say no, ask why. If they say price, tell them you will pay their cost for CPO. If they say something else, tell them you are worried a out the history of the car.

Since this is a BMW dealer, ask them to show you the full service history (FSH). Tell them to run a diagnostic and update any required software.

If they do that, tell them you will buy the car. Walk in with a check from Penfed for the asking price plus 1/2 your sales tax and ask them to cover the title, license and other 1/2 of the tax. Or try for the whole thing. Odds are they will ring you up.

When shopping used, you either have to be very patient until the perfect car / deal comes along or pay a bit more when you find what you want.

Go for it.
