1998 740, WITH 145k Miles

Hello all-

My first post. Looking into buying this car. Mileage seems a little high. Any common problems with this model? Will have it checked at the dealers for a thorough inspection. Owner changed chain, AC/powers steering belts etc. What else should I be looking for?

I definately like the V8. Any other recommendations out there? OP selling for 6K. Car drives well. Never owned a BMW before. I own an E320 and looking for a change. Sedan or Coupe ok, V6/V8 preffered. Any advice>

Forgot to say as for the mileage 500K plus no danger, as long as you look after her , she will you.
