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.

2011 128I Purchase

I need some help in purchasing a 2011 128I convertible for my wife. She only drives about 4k to 5k a year and does not want to spend the money on a new vehicle. I would like to know if there is anything specific I need to look for in purchasing a CPO from the dealer. It still has warranty until 2017. Should I purchase additional warranty?
The vehicle has 6,592 Miles and appears to be in excellent condition. It has the Navigation System, Premium Package, Hardon Stereo System, Etc. and the dealer is asking $30,500.
Does this price seem to be decent for this vehicle?
I checked the carfax and It shows only one owner and the only thing I noticed is that the Pulse Generator was replaced during the scheduled service. I am not sure what this is but should I be concerned about this being replaced? Is this something that may indicate a future problem?

Price seems reasonable. If its CPO, then there's nothing to worry about. I wouldn't recommend spending any extra money on an extended warranty since the CPO already comes with a comprehensive 100k mile warranty.
The pulse generator is just a sensor. Minor repair, nothing to worry about and it's no indication of potential future problems.
