The 328i is a very solid car.

The only thing better then that is the e90 2006 330xi which might be on sale to the right buyer

Things to look for:
Oil Change History. At least every 15,000 miles or 1 year. If a person does it more frequently then great
Battery - was it changed...if not it will be.
What are the brakes (discs/pads) like
What are the tires like
Did it receive any other fluid change (not really necessary). Some people say you should change the trans fluid, some people say not to. Ask for this discussion if you want to see a thread get hijacked
Also ask for the entire service history. If they changed a component on the car, that is a good thing, and you should know about it. For example, I just had some work done on my car (expensive maintenance). i will disclose that because the future owner will know they are receiving some brand new components.

Other then that, I don't got much else.
