Should I or shouldnt I

Hey folks...I'm on the cusp of purchasing an 07 X-5 4.8 in mint condition. It has 70K with a warranty to 97K. I'm scared of the dreaded oil leaks on these models and am wondering if someone can tell me what year and trim they are most susceptible on.

Well, it' a first year BMW that's probably not been maintained for long term durability. On top of that it has the N62 motor which is susceptible to oil and coolant leaks. Probably not going to be top of the charts on the Consumer Reports recommended list. I have that same motor in the 650 and it's been good to date but I expect there will be some multi thousand dollar bills to reseal it down the line.

One way to look at it is you're getting a very expensive vehicle at a laughable percentage of what it cost when new. You're not taking the huge depreciation hit, but you might have to spend a few bucks to reseal the engine down the line.
