What are some common problems on a 1998 528i?

Looking into buying a 1998 528i with 160K miles and was curious about the common problems these cars have. With all the miles on the car some things can start to fall apart and I would like to know what I'm possibly getting myself into. Thanks for the input!

oxygen sensors are suposed to be replaced i believe every 65k and probaly a worn clutch if a standard with those miles. this is with me assuming the components are original witch a good chance there not. internally motor wise the m52 are pretty reliable even with those miles
