From the CARFAX, the car has an in-service date of 4/08 which means the CPO on this car is only good for 6 more months (4/14). If I were you, I would ask the CPO be extended at least one more year. If that isn't feasible then price check other companies who issue warranties (USAA), then reduce your offer on the car to cover that cost.
Ask for a BMW service history on the car.
Be prepared to back out if it doesn't pass your "smell test."

Just some thoughts.

Not sure if you can extend CPO, but you could buy BMW Extended Vehicle Protection (EVP).
