2002 530i advice on purchase?

I have found a 2002 530i with manual transmission for sale in my area and car looks nice. The mileage is higher than I would like at 175 k but he has done the following maintenance:
August 2010 Repairs attached New Clutch, 7-24-9 Routine Oil changes Struts all around, 3-22-12 Valve Cover Gasket, 3-22-12 Tune-Up, 3-22-12 Replaced DISA Valve, 2-16-12 Thermostat, 1-09-11 Left Upper, Left Lower Control Arms, 1-09-11 Right Upper, Right Lower Controls Arms, 1-09-11 Battery, 1-09-11

He says it needs an alignment and the rear passenger window regulator doesn't work which is no big deal to me. Tires are pretty new, price seems fair at around $5600. Does this sound like an okay deal to you all or should I hold out for a lower mileage car?
Thanks for the advice.
