Need advice on this platform

Hello,

Im currently on the market to purchase a M5 and been researching about this car for a 2 months now. I need help as I dont have much experience on this platform.

Would you purchase a car not from a BMW dealership and has 1 minor accident and no service records from carfax? 2016 M5 executive package 36k miles was registered as a company vehicle. Warranty will expire 12/2019.

2nd option is a 2016 M5 with 58k with service history from carfax. Very minor accident with true360 report / certificate. Should I be worried about the high mileage? Im still inquiring about the warranty. This car is also not from BMW dealership.

3rd option is a better deal but I just want to find out if the other options are good. 2016 M5 with 48k miles still under warranty and it is a CPO and it is from a BMW Dealership. Has service records and no accident.

Anything else that I need to be aware of when buying please let me know. Thank you

My $0.02 -- Forget about #1, Don't worry about the mileage on #2, and drive and buy #3. Ask about extending the warranty.

They are all for 16's so I don't have to defend my '13 from all the doubters
