buying used or cpo out of state?

Any recommendations to buying a used m3 out of state? I'd like to order new, but its hard to justify. I'm flexible on my options. probably prefer 6mt over dct. Just one less technical thing to have an issue with.

the problem is that most m3's are 1000+miles away from me. I'd like to stay under 15k miles on one. and I have no issue with either flat bedding or flying up and driving home a car, if I knew the quality of the car. Is it out of the question to have a seller take the car to a dealership and have them look it over to produce an inspection report? What about cpo? is that a rigourous enough standard that you would feel comfortable buying a cpo out of state without driving it first?

thanks

Just get a PPI done (pre purchase inspection) And you should be fine.

i would def make sure you personally drive the car and look it over in person before anything. and if that means going great distance to get what you want then you have to do what you have to do. Or you could just be patient and see if something comes up closer. GL
