Thinking About Buying an '02 X5, 87K

Hey guys:

I'm usually hanging out in the e39 boards, but my beloved '98 5 Series has finally given up the ghost.

I'm eyeing an 2002 X5 3.0 with about 87K on it. She's in beautiful cosmetic condition. Took it for an extended highway test drive and I was blown away by the power. Not a hint of hesitation. The trans shifting felt completely fluid.

But before take the plunge, I just had a few questions for you good folks:
  • What do you guys think about the 2002 e53 year?
  • Anything I should ask the dealer about?
  • Can I use any e39 parts in the e53?
  • Can the e53 run on an e39 battery?

Thanks for your help!
