future owner - can't wait!

So after lots of thought, it is time to finally let go of my 04 LSB e46. I am really excited to get an e92. I plan on purchasing an 08-09 AW/BLK extended leather MT. Just patiently waiting to find this combo in California. I sure am getting impatient though. I seen one that I liked, but after viewing the carfax, it only had 2 service records @ 49k. How can you only service your car twice @ 49k, SMH! The hunt continues...

While it can help, don't trust Carfax as gospel. It's often lacking information on service and accident history. Take with a grain of salt.

OP good luck, I hope you find one before too long.

While it's a long shot, I assume you are also checking the Roundel Classifieds and BMW CCA online.

I was in the same boat a month ago and I got an 09 because of the updated NAV. I have a year left on the warrantee and maintenance too, which was also a factor in getting an 09. Good luck

Good luck with your search, but my 2 cents would be to have the dealer check the service records. I don't think carfax catches everything, and given that these cars get service for free, it is pretty unlikely that there would be no service until 49k miles.

Yeah you are right. Lucky, my friend is a service manager at a local dealership so I plan on getting a full inspection before i purchase.

Got my new baby today! Super excited. Coming from an E46, I look forward to joining the e9x community. Today i purchased my 08 AW/BLK, 19k miles, 6mt e92 with every option except extended leather. The drive home was amazing. Now its time to add a couple mods.
