3) Did the previous owner(not leasor) buy "extended maintenance?" If so it's yours.
4) Price: You should be able to get a new one for $1000 over invoice. Go to this website bmwconfig.com/ , configure a new one like the one you're thinking of and I think you'll see your car is over-priced. Look around cars.com ( all over the country) and compare what other (particularly private sellers) '11s are selling for.
I was told it was not a lease and brought in to the dealer recently for trade in. CarFax indicates the 1,200 checkup was performed.
Yeah, I noticed the asking price is high and was thinking somewhere around $60K would be more in line.
