Considering an '08 335i w/problems

I have a few questions about a 335i I am considering buying used not CPO. I have taken the car on a short test drive and right away I could tell that something was wrong. It felt like it was in limp mode (warning light was on/I don't know the codes thrown). I checked the service history through a local BMW dealer and it shows that the High pressure pump (HDP) has failed on two separate occasions (at 37,xxx mi and 45,xxx mi). Currently at 76,xxx mi. Is this a HPFP failure that its experiencing now? Would the SIB B13 03 09 warranty extension be honored for a 3rd owner of the vehicle? Thank you for any help you can give.

Is the price that attractive that it's worth having issues that may/may not be HPFP related?

The seller seems to be aware of the issue (and hasn't been able to sell it) but I would be using the problem as leverage to lower the price. Maybe I should continue my search elsewhere...

Find an indy with a BMW compatible reader and have the actual code pulled. It may be something worth dealing with, it may not.

If it is the HPFP, the warranty extension should not care how many owners the car has had.

I only have repair history from the 1st owner (who had things taken care of at a BMW dealer). The last thing it was brought in for at 53,xxx mi was an N54 injector check (defect code 0013970100). I am going to guess and say valve cleaning hasn't been done. (unless it is 85990201MP)

Getting the code will be the next step. The two defect codes from previous failures mentioned above are 1351901200 and 1351651200.
