Buying e66 vs f02?

Looking to purchase a used highway cruiser and I'm finding I can get a 06-07 for around 9k. These cars have around 100k on them, but I usually run cars to around 175k (my e90 has 175k right now and I'll be keeping it a)

I'm also finding 09 cars for around 12k... Now I've read about all the n63 problems, but I also read about the n62 oil seals and transmission problems.

Which one of these cars, both with 100k on them, is most likely to make it to 175k with the least problems (given that they are equally well-maintaned)?

The N63 is much more likely to have much more expensive problems than the N62TU.
