Wow sounds like a good deal if it has had all the maintenance. Just know it may need all the basic care that goes on with an X5.
Items I have done since I bought my 2003 3.0i 4 years ago with 89k, now has 142k. I paid $14,400.
Alternator
Battery
Transmission drain and filter
Front right half shaft with CV boot
CCV system (pcv valve)
DISA idle control
Plugs
Lower ball jonts
Control arm bushings
Tie rods

Yes at about 110k drained the transmission and filled myself. This just did a partial fluid change. Then my neighbor has his own business out of his house and he dropped the pan and changed the filter. I think I spent $100 bucks total. Filter with gasket and used Valvoline Maxlife DEX/MERC. The shift selector linkage gasket is leaking slowly and will need a transmission shop to fix the $5 part but will have to do the fluid change over again. I have just watched to make sure its not leaking bad.
