Need your input - Used M3

Hi All,

I've been in the market for an m3 coupe for the past month or so and I really wanted to buy used and I found a couple 2008's that were great price and I liked.

Then I took a test drive of a 2010 model and I loved the new I-drive. Unfortunately, there are no used 2009's out there right now that have what I want.

That being said, there's an 08 that has everything I want - 20K miles (non-CPO, boo), premium, tech, ipod, 19's, 6mt - $50K. I think I could get the dealer down a little bit and Edmunds TMV is listing the value at 48K. However, the dealer is really far from me so I can't go test drive it without being pretty serious about buying it.

Should the fact that it's a non-cpo, 20K miles, and old idrive stop me from buying it? I'm guessing everyone will say no but I'd appreciate's everyone's input and if 48K is too much.

PS -dealer is sending me the maintenance records that he has along with a carfax later today.
