CPO 2011 535xi sport

Considering a CPO 535xi Sport with 10k miles. Clean Carfax. What should I look out for? Build date? Verify ECU update, rims etc. I drove 3 2011 535xi and all had a very noticeable lag on start off, many here say that a tranny flash fixed this while others say no.
Any suggestions, my main reservation is that it is a 1st year model.

So the 2011 is sold,and now there is a 2012 with 11500 miles, space grey/cin M package etc with original sticker of 69k. Have not found many sites that put a value on a used 2012. dealers starting price is 57.5k for CPO. Any thoughts on price and things to look out for?

At that price, why not try an pick up a left over MY2012 new. There are/were lots of incentives out there and should get you pretty close to this IMO.

Definitely buy after Sept 2010 build, preferably April 2011 build is better.

Agree. But CPO warranty is worth a couple K, don't forget.

How much time/miles does the CPO warranty add? I know the base gets you 4yrs/50K miles.
