I'd be careful about a car with that many Kms. The above post offers some good advice. Go to the trouble to check everything on this car. X5s are capable of going forever. They are beautifully designed and built. But you will have some issues. Possible things are drivetrain, air conditioner, brake pads and discs, gear box and onboard diagnostics. Make sure all these components are in order. Take it for a good test drive. It should drive pithily without smells or strange noises. Best you get it checked. $13000 is a good buy, but expect to pay up to 2500 -3000 getting it sorted out if there are some issues.
