01 330xi Deal or No Deal?

Hey guys,
Looking for advice...I'm considering picking up an '01 330xi
(auto) with 78,000 miles. Are there any major issues I should be aware of with High miles? mechanical? electrical? Anything I should look for? The car appears to be in good condition and according to the carfax it's had scheduled routine maintenance performed through out the life of the car. Thanks.

Take it to a good/ reliable German cars mechanic. Check it at high RPM and high speed if you know somewhere that you can hide form the police radar Grrrrr....

These cars last long if the original owner(s) behaved it well. In our family we have good experience with a couple of high mileage BMW's. So I dared to be the third one and bought a 2002 325XI at 114000km (around the same mileage of the 330XI you're buying).
