Thinking about purchasing a 2006 330xi

New to BMW's and I want to purchase one. I did find an 06 330xi with 84K miles on it.

What are some of the things I need to ask prior to purchasing? What are some of the problems experienced with this model? Parts issues?

Any helpful information would be greatly apprciated. Thanks in advance

This has been covered many times try doing a search for 330 or 330 xi

problems are the same on 325,328 or 330 for 06 to 09 at least
335 has a set of turbo troubles.

Don't even think about. Not only are those problem prone, but they are out of warranty as well....

its possible they will last a long time if there well taken care off.

It's true they are expensive to fix if something major breaks.
