Up to you. It should be possible to find a used E90 sedan DCT under 50k.
FYI in 2009 BMW upgraded the idrive substantially. I would set my sights on an 09 or 10 with 15 to 25k miles. It will have a year or two of the BMW OEM warranty left also.
Otherwise you are looking at options, such as the tech package, competition package, etc. etc. Lurk on the forums or use sites such as Edmunds.com and kbb.com to price shop what you should be paying.
Can you travel?
It will broaden your options if you can. We flew from Atlanta to Indianapolis to buy ours.
