Buying used X5 - need advice

I'm thinking 2010, 2011, 2012 used X5. 3.5I, comfort access and cold weather pkg, nav.

Any reasons to stick with newer other than the likelihood of lower mileage? Any options I wouldnt want to do without? This is for wife, replacing 2002 MB ML500. The seats seem flat, compared to her ML and my BMW 650 convertible w sport seats. Are there people that may have optioned in the better seats on an X5 w/o springing for the "sport" package?.
Lots of questions - thanks in advance!
