first off welcome.
The sun roof problem is more then likely due to the sun eatng the plastic clips away that hold the shade in place. When the clips break it causes the sunroof to jam, so you cant open it fully. Fix takes about 30min and a $5 clip.
more than likely not a big problem.
Rear window problem is probably bad window regulators. Its somewhat of a gamble from what i read, but if they replace them it should be find for atleast a few years, if not forever.
Mine went out in my 2001, im on my second replacement in 100 thousand miles.
I would purchase the warranty, just incase. Might pay off, and if not atleast youll have the peace of mind knowing you are covered incase something does break.
how many miles?

how much do they want you to pay. That is high mileage for an 06. You should use that as a bargaining tool as well as the other repairs. Any 3 year old car should not have these problems. Think about it. If you are having problems now, think about what is going to happen around 70,000 to 100,000. I would shop around for something that came off a lease and still has a factory warranty. They all come with 4 years or 50,000 miles bumper to bumper. Even if it is a bargain, be careful. It doesn't sound like the car was cared for. I have a 94 525i with 83,000 that doesn't have your problems. I would pass but if you "have to have it", definitely get the warranty. If the car is labled "AS IS", run. The dealer should offer some sort of warranty, even if it is for a year. If they will not warranty a 3 year old car, forget it.
Put on your nike's and run as fast as you can. I don't know where you live. I am in Las Vegas where everything is overpriced. I saw an 05 3 series for 14,500 in mint condition about a month ago. Shop around. It took me seven months to find mine but she is a gem. Check out my ride pics in the member's gallery.I used to sell bmw's back in 1991 and I can guide you if you wish. Any questions post or drop me a pm. Good Luck.
ps. any as/is car is a red flag. It doesn't matter what it is. Especially a BMW. That car should go 70-100,000 without any major service.
