If you can get the maintenance records, it will be a big help. It looks well looked after so maybe the previous owner did most of the preventative stuff.

At that mileage, there are a number of things that usually need attention some of which I have outlined above.

Like I said, read the WIKI and you will get a good idea for the most common stuff.

These cars like to be "mothered" but the good news is, they are designed to be relatively easy to work on and most things are covered in this forum and can be DIY. Best parts and places to buy can also be found here so you did goo dcoming to Bimmerfest.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
