if you could recommend me some that would be great
or where you got your car from
bmwusa.com, CPO search (but you can search all pre-owned, not just CPO models).
I started with 1000 miles radius and expanded to whole country. Got quotes of ~$1000 to ship car from West coast (Washington) to East coast (Boston). Felt it was totally worth it to get the exact color/options I wanted and low mileage. And the three dealers I spoke with all were quick to drop the list price, so there felt like there was lots of room for negotiation.
Was looking at '09 CPOs with 9K and 12K miles earlier this year. If I hadn't decided to get the car I did, I was ready to buy one of these. I was looking for similar colors as you + 6MT + MSport.
