Listen, I bought an 02 745i with 120K in january of last year for around 10k, first year i spent 4k.
1Kish for IPod integration (new dash screen aka MMI, Ipod kit, new glove button trim cover, some programming)
350 for a new 3d nav (this didnt NEED to be replaced I did this by choice)
350 for a working L7 amp on ebay (my old one was dead)
replaced alternator for 650ish , parking brake, all cooling hoses and the tank/cap, oil changes, brakes, spark plugs, air filters, cabin air filters, VCG, oil pressure switch***, got a matching spare tire, etc etc to clean her up. all together came to about 4K.
Anyways, now I am at 146500 (I drive a lot) No MIL No leaks. If you buy one of these cars with over 100K just be well aware you will need some money aside for maintenance repairs because chances are the PO is selling to avoid the costs.
Could I have bought a newer one for 14K? probably. but then again I may have had to fix the same things or possibly more
