Yeah, Carfax showed pretty much nothing after like 50K. Prior to that it was going to a dealer, so I assume the last owner was the DIY type or the "not paying dealer prices type", for maintenance.

Ignore the urban legend about out of warranty ownership. A BMW is as reliable as any of it's competition if maintenance is kept up and problems fixed.
See temp gauge. This can't be normal.... I'm on the highway already.
This is the highest it gets. This was about 15 min after the first pic, getting off the highway.
Oh and the timing chain.. am I good here? Hopefully the guide situation was sorted out by then.
