New Car help!

Hey everybody! I'm looking to purchase this gorgeous 2007 328xi on Thursday. The car is manual with navigation and a little over 78,000 miles. Is there anything I should be cautious of or should specifically look for when going to look at the car or any tips on how to lower the price?! Thank you!Click image for larger version

Inspect under the oil cap for sludge.

Inspect under the oil cap for sludge.

Be aware if the runflat tire issues.
there are many threads on RFT.

The two issues with the n52 engine are oil gasket leaks
valve cover , head gasket and oil filter housing.
Usually caused by head bolt or valve cover bolts breaking .
there are hole thread on this also.

The other issue is valve ticking . Many threads on this also .

There is no dipstick its electronic
Also the waterpump usually fails between 60 and 90k so if
look for this in the maintenance history.

Thats the worst of it.

You should google the Mike Miller old school maintenace schedule for an
idea of how to maintain BMW's for the long haul.
