High miles, 165,000 but they're only asking 15,000 for it. Carfax shows a lot of servicing of the electrical system, engine, and suspension from about 20k miles to 100k miles. What are your thoughts? My mom's 740il M-Sport has 107k on it with no problems, what should I look out for?

Maintenance history would be key. That's a LOT of miles on a car that is NOT cheap to fix. The sport button mainly changes the throttle response. It *feels* quicker, but it probably isn't. I always have mine on though, and the DSC off.
