Help i need advice on if i should buy this 335i?

Hey im new to the forums and to bmw's but im looking on buying a 2007 335i with 54,000 miles for $24,000 I did test drive and it is very clean and drove great. Here is the problem I have found out that the car has been in the shop for a lot of different things (within the last 9,000 miles) such as.

Tire pressure sensor
Pressure valve sensor
Transmission leak
Steering angle sensor replaced
And another sensor went up
Loss of power light came on twice
Somthing with the turbo pressure valve also

Everything has been fixed and everything that was replaced does have a 2 year warranty. Would you still buy this car or wait for another?

Thanks..

Personally I stay away from ANY BMW without a warranty, the few thousand you save on the price could easily cost you that in a single repair trip. My advice, wait til you find a little lower mileage car or get a CPO.
