Mein Auto: 328xi coupe
High milage 07 328xi sulev.

Hi all, im a new be both to the forum and to BMWs. My impression about BMWs is that they have excellent performance, are expensive to buy and expensive to maintain. Being a motorbike rider, that also goes for BMW bikes.
By a twist of faith a business friend of mine informed me of an 07 328xi with a good price to resell and make a profit, so i decide to go ahead with intention of driving it for 3-4 months, if i dont jell with it i can always sell it. In any case i would probably sell it and get a low mileage as replacement.
BMW 328Xi coupe SULEV
ODO= 234,000 miles.
price= $14,300.

My questions are, what is the lifespan of this engines? is the coupe suitable for a 6.9 footer? at 234,000 the motor must have pretty reach the end of its lifetime, is it correct? possibly some forum members have 300K on theirs. The vehicle is in great exterior physical condition.
CARFAX indicates that the transfer case motor had been replaced at a point.
VIN - wbawv53537pf95072.

Kind regards,
