N62 was first introduced on E53 in 09/2003. So post 09/2003 you are fine, although 24-points test (or whatever it is called there) is strongly advised to verify that VALVETRONIC (ie the so called "misfire") parts do not have excessive wear.
135k km is still a low mileage in this case, so if the test verify that VALVETRONIC is ok, you're fine.

Most N62 engines run fine around here with yearly temps between +30C to -30C.
First off I did not say that the N62 engine had an oil separator problem. If you read my post I stated a misfire problem with the N62 engine in cold weather.

You never ran across a post on a BMW with the N62 engine misfire in the cold, N62 engine with intermediate levers problems at 60,000 miles?

You must live a very shelter life or only post on this forum.
