Question New Year, New E46 Xi owner? Car evaluation thread!

Hey folks. I'm in Madison, WI looking into some '02-04 Xi's. The ones right now that I'm looking at are:

'02 in Chicago with 68k on it for $9400 or so.
Probably no service records
No packages. (Premium/Cold/Sport)
From a Toyota dealership with a giant inflatable blue gorilla.
Rust unknown. Lower mileage car. Not sure if 68k in Chicago is typically rusty.

'02 in Madison with 114k on it for $9600 or so.
Purchased from the dealership it's for sale at. All services were done there and the records are available.
All packages (as far as I know). Premium+Cold+Sport
From a local BMW dealership, where it was serviced and purchased originally.
Rust near rear 1/4 right above the trim line, both sides.

I'm a little swayed toward the local place because I can actually take it back there if things pop up the first week or something. Opposed to having to drive to Chicago. Which I would probably never end up doing. This local place also works directly with the lender I'm using for the car.

Curious what you all think of both of these. I'm also not in a hurry and can wait for a few months so I can easily wait and see what else comes up.

And Happy New Year!

'02 in Madison
