Opinions on Service History

I am interested in buying a 2008 e90 M3 w/ 28k. I had the PPI done (good report from dealer, but I'm not very confident in their report). I asked the dealer where I had the PPI done for the DCS sheet and I was denied.

Tonight I bought the carfax. No service history at all for first 21K mi. It was sold as a "dealer car." The current owner said he is the second owner, but the carfax suggests three. If the carfax is correct he lied about how long he has owned the car.

I was ready to make an offer on the car on Sunday, but after looking at this report I am having second thoughts. Any way I could find out the service history of the car while it was owned by a dealer (first owner)? Would it make sense that this information is missing from carfax since a dealer owned it? Should I just stay away? Thanks.
