Mein Auto: 03 ZHP, 01 X5, 73 MGB
I bought my 01 3.0i new (hers actually). It has just over 129k miles on it. It's never let me down, although I am pretty meticulous about maintenance. All of the typical M54 stuff applies (cooling systems, CCV, OFHG leak, VCG, Vanos seals, etc). My X5 also eats front brakes and outer CV boots. I expect mine to run to at least 200k. So long as the PO was good with maintenance, you should have no problem reaching 200k.
