2001 x5 3.0 Reliability at high mileage?

I've got my eye on a 2001 X5 3.0... it's got about 125K on it. Underside looks clean, no signs of leaks or weeps on engine that I can see... in fact, the engine is really clean and, to my surprise, shiny. Brakes seem to be pretty new, tires look brand new (Cooper, all-season), body looks great.
It drives like a boss, accelerates smoothly. Knowing little about BMWs, I'd be grateful for any input as to what to look for when I go to re-inspect it.

Also noted: RPMs 2000 @ 55MPH .. dunno if that's good or bad.
