240,000 miles

Looking at buying a 1997 528i with 240,000 miles for about $3000 in good condition. Is this too many miles. Am I looking for trouble?

I would prefer to see the rest of the service records, but knowing the last done important bits like coolant pump etc may help. Find out if it burns oil and if automatic, when the transmission fluid was changed.

How strong is an automatic for that series.

I don't know the details, but the fluid should be changed at around 60,000 miles or so.
