Mein Auto: 2006 X5 3.0
In the market for an X5. What mileage should I not go over if purchasing an 04

Typically more than 10k-12k a year is going to be on the higher side of mileage.
The power on the v8 is great but be warned. When those engines reach 100k depending on what if anything the previous owner replaced as preventative maintenance you can be in for a doozy. Ask me about my experience with my 745 equipped with an n62 (bmw v8) and you'll know why i got a well optioned 3.0L x5 as its replacement. So my opinion is a bit biased but not without reason.
All that being said if you're looking for a v8 get the lowest mileage you can afford and make sure you have some money for potential issues aside as well.
