Need help!!!! New to this!

Hi all,
I found a 2002 BMW 330i with 133k on it for $7100. I was wondering is it worth it to buy it or not? What is the maintenance like after I buy it. The person who is selling it is the original owner and has taken care of it pretty well. Serviced every 10k miles. The car has the premium and sports package with the M wheels. The car is CLEAN inside and out. It has a upgrade exhaust and an air intake system.

I am just worried because of the miles. Can someone give me advice?!

I have attached these pictures of the car.

I'd check out the car before I bought it .. 7100 seems even a little low to me . I've not done alot of research in the E46s but from what I heard the 330s are very nice. If the guy knows what the car is worth I'd look for some defects for him getting ride of it so cheap. It looks too good to be true. Even some E36s are going for over 10G a buddy of mine just got 13k for a E36 328 so def. do some research. And if it comes up nothing is wrong, maybe you found yourself a deal.

hey,
I actually work at a dealership, thats why I can get it for $7100. I have a carfax for the car and its been only one person and the car was serviced every 10k miles. I actually drove the car and it drove really smooth. My only concern is the maintenance after I buy it.
