Hi Richard and welcome to the forum.
I'll try to answer your question-in general- while leaving the specifics for other members. It all depends on the ex-owners driving habits, style and maintenance. 100K is high on some while 250K sounds more like it on other Bimmers. Having said that, BMW engines are tough to kill but you have to stay on the top of it-maintenance wise. The way I see it? I6s are less demanding than the V8 i.e. more economical and less expensive to maintain. At the end of the day these engines do outlive their ¼ of a million mile stone!!!
Wishing you the best of lucks on your purchase

i just bought a 93 525i with 250,000 miles on it for $2700. the miles scareded me a lot, but it still runs very strong and is in good shape

haha, i got my 95 525i for like $25,000. but of course that was back in, umm year 98ish. 5500 does sound kind of high. i would be lucky to sell my 95 525i with 131k for something around that price.
