Help with purchase of 535XiT

I am looking to get a 535Xi wagon. I am selling my beloved Jeep because I simply did not use it as intended, and I came to the realization I missed my old 3 series wagon.
I still like to go play in the snow and dirt, just not as extremely.
Anything I should be aware of as I am conducting my search?
Any recalls?
Any problem areas?

Your help would be greatly appreciated

search the forum threads and you'll see some well documented issues like clogged sunroof drains and water below cargo floor. Just stuff to be aware of, nothing fatal.
They are great cars, especially with a tune. Good gas mileage too.

Check out what Baymar did to his. Rims, tune and coil overs.
Hope you got the sport version with the awesome seats.

I did! Has the lumbar, seat length, headrest, etc. adjustments on both front seats. I missed that BMW leather smell, too.

I have a 2008 with Dinan installed when new. Great car - just be careful of the front control arms which are only 5" off the ground. No off roaring or car washes!!!

Thanks. It'll be difficult to stay on the pavement; My last car was a lifted Jeep on 35" tires
