Tips for buying?

Currently in the market for a new set of wheels with an BMW at the top of the list, my last car (IS300) was totaled. Budget is set at ~$8500. After looking my best option is looking like a 5 or 3 series with around ~100k. All within 2003-2008 Im planning on doing a Car Fax and asking about maintenance before committing. What im asking is what should I expect over the next 3-4 years as far as maintenance goes. I purchased my 03 is300 with 109k and ran it until 136k, did regular maintenance, and never had a problem that I couldnt fix. But thats Lexus, I'm asking about BMW.

Yup. Read the "so you just bought an E60"

That and get the BMWhat app. Pays for itself quickly.
