To Indulge or to Not Indulge

Hello everyone, first post here and I have a load of questions regarding potentially buying a CPO BMW.

I have been in the market for a CPO BMW for almost 6 months now. I currently drive a 2001 Toyota Tundra and drive approx. 90 miles round trip every day for work (going 60-70 mph on the freeway for 90% of drive) and want something more fuel-efficient (spending around $450 a month on gas) as well as more enjoyable to drive. I work between 10-12 hours a day in the office so those ~2 hours I'm driving every day I want to enjoy, and a BMW will allow me to find those miles much more engaging than my current situation as well as get some savings on gas.

I have been in the market for a 2016 428i/435i coupe or GC with M-Sport package. I would pay the extra $2.5k to upgrade the 1-year unlimited mile CPO warranty that comes with the car to a 2-year bumper-to-bumper unlimited mile warranty (doesn't cover wear items, e.g. timing belts, oil, brakes, rotors, etc.). I just graduated college in May and got a job where I make enough money where I can comfortably afford a car like this but hear from a lot of older folk who don't own luxury sports cars themselves that driving such a car so much will be the worst decision I will make. Wondering if anyone here is in a similar commute situation and what their experience has been with a 428i/435i. Should I be considering a car of this nature given how many miles I will be putting on it every year (at least 25k)? If you have a 428i, are you happy with the power of the twin spooled turbo inline 4 cylinder vs. 6 cylinder of the 435i? If you drive a 435i, are you happy with the power/mpg trade-off? I have seen some CPOs with 40-50k miles on them at attractive prices. Is it worth it to pay more for a lower mileage option? What can I expect in maintenance every year given that BMW suggests servicing every 10k miles?

I'm sure I have more quetions but can't think of them right now.

Thanks for all of your responses.
