Checklist of things to get from private party sale

I found an 2008 e93 that I want to buy, and since this is my first BMW, I'm creating a checklist of things to get from the seller. How many sets of keys are there? Does the car come with any software CDs or DVDs? Aside from the Owner's Manual, what else should the car come with?

Thanks for the help!

I'm glad you are asking all the right questions.
Make sure all service records are included. And look through them thoroughly.

Ask the previous owner if he/she has the windscreen deflector. It's a must-have on the e93 and will run you between $3-500 in the after-market or from the dealer. Also if the car is so-optioned, get the iPod cable.

I found an iPod cable on eBay for $15 that works great. I am however missing the tools (but I have the tire kit intact)

Salvage title so you can save some money - and then spend it all on repairs.
