I've got a 89, 525i with the older M-20 engine and it has 367,000+ miles on the original drivetrain and I'm going for 400K. No problems whatsoever, I just keep the timing belt changed every 60K and she's serviced at my local BMW dealer every 3~4K and use BMW 15w-40 mineral oil.
I also bought a 1990 535i with the M-30 engine and 5-speed gettrag tranny, 3.64:1 Posi rear and it had 214K on it when I got it.
I regularly run both cars up to the Governors, 134mph for the 525 & 144mph for the 535.
As long as the car has been properly maintained by the original owner, and he/she can document it, I'd buy it in a minute.
