Need some input for a possible future owner of a 525i BMW

I'm thinking about buying a 525i with 160k miles, but my concern is that since it has so many miles is that I may need to get something repaired on it sooner than later. Are the maintenance costs expensive? I've always thought that they were, but since I've never owned a BMW, I thought you guys could help me out with this. Thanks for your input and sorry if this question has been asked many times before.

Hi, Any car will cost you money!!!, they have to be serviced, if you look after them they will look after you, if this car has full service history then you should be fine.

On the other hand try a Lexus, boy when they go wrong,take out a 2nd mortgage, I know I had an LS400


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
