Default Buying Used - Is this a good deal?

Hi - I've been thinking of buying a mini convertible for quite some time. I found a 2005 S that has only 6,500 miles. It has a year left on the warranty and has quite a few options: Packages: Premium, Sports, Cold Weather and Convenience. It has full leather interior with the interior and exterior chrome. Premium sound and a rear mounted CD changer. The Carfax report is clean. The KBB price is $29,900. They are asking $27,000.

Does this sound like a good deal? I'm not sure I need all the extras and am debating if I should continue to look for a more stripped down version to save some $$$$.

Thanks for all of your input. This is a great forum!

I'd be a little scared of only a year left in warranty ... If you finance you'll be paying for it longer then that ...

get a cheaper one... you won't need everything that it has... write down what you want and look for what you want... not what you see you like...
