I think you made the right decision. When I responded earlier I didn't realize that it was out of warranty. One of my main criteria was a car that had at least a few months of remaining warranty so that I could get a feel for tne car. My first two choices in color were white and then grey, but the fact that my car came with a bit over 10 months warranty made me "settle" for black. Not that I don't love the color, was just wanting to switch it up as my last two BMWs have been black. I still LOVE my two tone interior.
My SMG pump went out in the first month of having the car at around 40k miles. Many other members have had this same problem. I would not purchase this car without a warranty.
I also noticed the above car does not have two very important options; full leather and CF interior trim. Being that these two options are exclusive the the M they were absolute musts for me. The CF looks amazing at night coupled with the ambient lighting, and it will be hard for me to move into a car lacking the full leather. It adds a certain measure of class to the interior and is a constant reminder that you are driving something special.
Keep holding out it will definitely be worth it! You have several advantages over me:
1. Year round good/decent weather
2. New to you E38 to keep you occupied
3. Cali has tons of nice inventory. Kentucky not so much.
stay strong and keep looking for that AW beauty.
