Question Need purchasing advice ASAP

Hi first time posing,

Been looking for an opportunity to buy a good M4. Found this one:

For the pros: 2018 lease. 3500 miles. Dinan Stage 2. Exec package. Sunroof (I prefer it that way). Owner says doesn't drive it enough. Seems forthcoming (see cons).

For the cons: 1 track day under the belt (owner says he didn't push it); been in an accident and shows up on Carfax (owner says repaired to full, but in a private shop, no frame damage).



Is 58k a reasonable price (he's kicking in $4500 from payoff value as incentive for me, I haven't haggled yet)? Is the accident or a track day too much of a red flag?

I'm looking for a car that I can own for a while (at 34, I've only had 2 cars, 8 years each) but don't want a toxic asset on my hands either.

Also, since I keep my cars for a long time, I'd like to have a recent year model, so it can age gracefully, but can't bring myself to pay dealer new car price for an M4.

Asking for advice ASAP because the guy wants the car gone to get a truck to daily drive, but needs to free up cash. Realistically, will still take at least a week, but since he's been honest about car history and wants to know my decision whether to get it, I'd rather not lead him on.

And just for reference, my (almost) perfect car (I want a sunroof in Orange County):
