In the Market for a 2001 X5
I am thinking about buying a 2001 3.0l X5 with 223,425 miles. Am I crazy? I have driven a 1998 Mercedes ML320 for the past few years.

Not crazy.
Usually you hear do your homework before making purchases like this,
in this case it's along the lines of a research paper.
Gotta check everything, ensure maintenance history is up to par.
At that mileage about everything thing that can possibly be changed should have been changed already.
In other words the list of items changed is probably longer than the list of items not changed.

And in a vehicle like this we're talking even the drivers seat. There could be some serious wear so it may or probably needs to be changed.
These vehicles last very long when taken care of.

if it was the v8 i would think you were. but bmws i6 is great. everything bor said and definitely check if the pcv system has been replaced or if known when replaced. if you cant get maint history or any proof or receipts anything like that i would say leave that alone. I'm sure there are plenty x5s on the market. i see em everywhere and i hear people who regret selling theirs too ;)
