How can I find the dealer's auction cost for a 2005 BMW 330ci convertible?

I'm in San Francisco looking to buy a BMW convertible. Found a 2005 330ci @35K, put the VIN into Carfax that says the last transaction was from an auction in April; from there it went to a dealer's lot. So it seems like its been sitting there for 5 months, which I'd think would make them interested in moving it, particularly since they will soon be pushing the 2008's out the door.
I'd love to know what the dealer paid for it. I would think that auctions are a cheap way to get cars. Would the dealer have bought it or would there be an intermediary that buys at auctions for dealers?
Does anyone have any suggestions on finding the value of the car from the dealer's perspective? Thanks.
