Help with used car purchase

Hello everyone. I'm currently in the market for a used vehicle and this black/black 2015 335i M Sport has caught my eye. Unfortunately, it's currently located in CO and I reside in OK so I'll need to have it shipped to me. Before I commit to that, I wanted to post it here to get your guys' input. With that being said, all of my previous vehicle purchases have been new vehicles directly from the dealer. This will be my first used vehicle purchase so any help pertaining to that would be highly appreciated.

IMO, the mileage is a bit high for a 2015 (93,000m) but it's not a deal breaker for me. The car fax and title came up clean so no issues there. Except for the M Sport package, the site doesn't mention any other specific packages so I had the price it on KBB with the information given. After inputting all of the known information, it came out to approximately $20K, which is, about the same price they're selling it for. To me, this seems like a fair/good deal and feel okay with moving forward but is there anything else I should be aware of, asking the dealer, or might be missing? Again, any help/advice would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Get the vin and run it in a decoder to see option packages. Might be cheaper to fly there, inspect it then drive it home.

It should be a lot cheaper than 20k with 93k miles. Hopefully the maintenance was kept up with. It most likely needed/needs brakes, shocks, all fluids, all filters.

Yeah, you weren't the only one to mention that it was a bit overpriced due to its high mileage so I ended up purchasing a different vehicle. Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.

We paid around 34k for a same year with msport and 8,000 miles. I feel like I wouldn't want to touch one of those with more than 30k on the clock, let alone over 75k

8K miles? Impressive. I ended up purchasing a 2014 335i M Sport with 65K for $17K.

Hello everyone. This is my first post, I am looking to purchase a 330xi in Toronto, Ontario. I have attached the listing here:
https://www.bmwautohaus.ca/used/vehi...id10499002.htm

While the car ticks all boxes for my criteria, the carfax report does show minor damage caused due to rear-end collision. Is this something I should be worried about?

Thanks in advance!
