2006 525xi concerns

Hello everyone, I have some concerns about the 2006 525xi. I'm interested in purchasing a 525xi and the price is very reasonable with low km/m I started to become very concerned about the km/m and was wondering is it possible to roll back the km/m without detection? Is there anyway I can check to see if it was rolled back I just don't want to be stuck with a BMW with high km/m thinking it's got low km/m.. Any advice or help would be appreciated.
Thanks. Sb

Although it's possible, it is not that easy to change/roll-back the mileage. CarFax (or similar reports) will show you any mileage discrepancy.
Usually, wear and tear on the car can give you indications of a car that has 100K miles vs. 30K miles.

I know this is a buried post but you can also get the inspection history to put 2 and 2 together.
