#3 ...... love the M-sport trim, wheels, stiffer suspension, ....... and 1,000 miles of factory warranty in case you notice any glitches in the first month!

#3. If it were me. I agree that it is nice to have a little OEM warranty left. For me, two necessaries from now on are adaptive cruise control ("ACC") and a headup display. Only #3 has both of those. Also, I love the MSport steering wheel which is one of the reasons I opted for the MSport package on my car. You interact with the steering wheel every time you drive the car so to me it is important that it is comfortable and works well for me.

My caveat is that the seats may be different in each vehicle. From what I have read on the forums, seating preferences vary widely and, just like the steering wheel, you interact with the seats every time you drive the car. I can't directly comment as I have the luxury seating package.

If you have sat in the three vehicles and all the seats seem okay to you, then I would stick with my recommendation. If, on the other hand, you don't like the seats in #3, then you have to consider the other packages and seats.

But, ultimately, the only opinion that matters is yours!

In the white you want with all the options you want, heck ya it's a good deal as long as the condition is good or better. You're going to like walking up to that color and driving that tech. If you drive low miles or high miles you have a good argument for a nice buy.
Read up on how everything works to get the most out of your ride.

I would agree that it sounds like an excellent deal. Presumably a factory employee took good care of the vehicle and the fact that they CPO's it suggests that this is true. But while it is still under warranty, I would have it checked out thoroughly as you do have a ton of technology.

In the meantime, enjoy the car.

Sounds good to me. Two months ago I bought a 2016 CPO 435i xDrive GC with 45000 miles. The original list price was $63k, and I paid $27k. It also had the adaptive suspension, which was on my must have list, and seriously hindered the search.
Figured I had 18 months of warranty to see if its prone to trouble with all that tech.
Congratulations and good luck.

I'm not sure if an M4 spoiler will fit the 430 GC, but you can buy an "M4-style" spoiler to fit your car.

I did this with my 440, got mine pre-painted from ikonmotorsports on eBay and it arrived painted beautifully and fitment was perfect.
