E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

The price is really good (almost too good). If the tech gives it a clean bill of health the carfax doesn't show anything bad like a salvaged title, then jump on it.
FWIW, I paid significantly more for what is essentially the same car this past October.

If you're bummed now; you'll be bummed every time you get into the vehicle, which is probably going to be everyday. Don't settle on things you know you really want just to get a good car at a great price.

I think it's a good buy for you- You mainly just gain bolstered sport seats with the sports package in the 128i, and satellite radio is prewired in the 2009's, so can be added easier later. It's priced below market- so if it checks out I'd jump on it.

Good luck!

It took me a while to find the car I wanted (sports pkg. and manual trans). I'm happy I didn't settle for something else.
