Is this deal Good?? 335is vert

I am in the market for CPO e93 and found this deal today. This will be my first time buying a used car so I would really appreciate your inputs here.

2011 e93 335is Mineral white metalic
34000 miles
Navigation Package,
Audiophile Sound Package ,
7 Speed Double Clutch Transmission,
19inch M Double Spoke Alloy Wheels - Style 313M
Its a Canadian car so cold weather, Comfort Access, Parking sensors and leather seats are standard.
I was able to brought the dealership down to $43500 OTD

Do you guys think its a good deal?

I got my IS for 41k out the door (USD) and it had 29k miles but did not have heated seats, parking sensors, or the 19" wheels (it had the same wheels but 18"). Also, it is a coupe as compared to the vert. Also has the logic 7 system (not sure if that is the same as the audiophile package?) so I think you are doing pretty well. Especially if it is in CAD $$.

BTW, you will LOVE the is. I pull on my friends 335 and my car is stock while his has dp's, bms dci, and the jb4 (e90 though) and I also can pull on my friends e93 with dci and jb4! The DCT is amazing!

Thanks for the input!
Yes the audiophile package includes logic 7. The car is fully loaded with every option on it that was available for 2011 model. I took it for a test drive and the car was a blast. Though I did found the steering to be a bit more tight as compared to my previous 335i....is this normal for IS?? The SA told me its because of the 19' wheels.

It does have the BMW performance suspension on it which may make it feel tighter with the combination of the wheels. Or possibly you had suspension parts beginning to wear out on your 335? It had been a while since I drove a regular 335 (I jumped straight into an IS, I never owned a 335 only have driven my friends) so I can't say if I felt the same thing. I like the steering feel on mine though.

Its because of the wheels and RFT tires, and not the suspensing.. The statement above is wrong, IS does not come with BMW performance suspension.. I know because I upgraded mine to BMW PS suspension and it is night and day!. Also, ditch RFT tires.

Yea you are right, 'IS' does not comes with performance suspension. I took test ride on another IS yesterday and I felt the same heaviness with the steering so maybe its normal. Upgrading to performance suspension sounds like a good idea. Thanks for your inputs.

So what suspension does it come with? Because I know it is not the standard sports suspension since the car sits lower than a regular 335i with the sports suspension...

Sport suspension got discontinued, M-sport is the only sport suspension you could get on an e9x since I think 2008 or 2009... 335is comes with M-sport suspension, and particularly LCI e92 suspension sits lower in the rear than pre-LCI.

Could be the 19's or it could be non-adaptive steering. I had adaptive steering in my previous E60 and my E93 is feels much tighter.

Just a thought...
