I have also heard anecdotally that Craigslist might be a good source in the SF area.

Don't hesitate to buy in other cities/states. Just find a good mechanic to do an inspection and use a covered transporter. Call a BMW dealer close to where you want to buy or try an independent BMW mechanic (http://www.bimrs.org/ or http://www.bimmershops.com/).

Good luck!
+1. You will find a lot of nice examples in the CCA classifieds. These are usually enthusiast cars that have been meticulously maintained and the price will reflect that. My advice is to look for an ad that provides a detailed description of how well the car was cared for, how the owner kept detailed service records, and a number pictures that show a well maintained and clean car. You may pay a bit more, and you may have to travel, but it will be worth it in terms of ownership and overall driving experience. GL!
