A suggestion might be take it to a indy shop and have them do a inspection, you can then be sure you get a unbiased checklist of borderline items that would need changing/replacing within a year. You could then leverage this to either bring down the cost of the car or have them agree to do the work on condition of sales.

If the Indy shop says it checks out fine, then you get a peace of mind as you drive away.

Good luck.

Lastly, you want to still ask for a Carfax report just in case.

Nah the car is 2005 330Ci sport ZHP. So it is a fresh trade in, but not a CPO. Yeah I thought not to trust a dealer.
