My car has about 130,000 miles and the car looks brand new..... The original paint is 11 years old but has no "spyder webs" and is smoother then most new cars.

My interior also has new seats so it LOOKS perfect but its not..... A car is not just made up of the clutch, brakes, and shocks.... which can be easily replaced......

There are soooooo many parts that normal wear and tear will get to and theirs nothing you can do about it. BMW will last forever, and im sure the car you speak of MAY run fine.... but with that many miles next week your driving and the engine blows or the a major electrical problem occours.....

If the problem is about money save up for another month and you can find the same car with 100,000 miles less...

the big question is auto or manual cause a auto tranny will go way before a manual. 190k miles isnt that bad, but i still think thats too high of mileage to buy a car at, cuz you cant really trust the guy.

if its been properly serviced then there shouldnt be a problem.....

my old boss had a 740i with 400k on the clock and that was still sweet as a nut!

my 328 has done 125k......

The reason I asked about this, there are very few BMW's for sale around here. The nearest dealer is 2 and a half hours away. I really want an m3 but that will probably come at a later time this year or possibly begining of next. It all depends on how long it takes me to get rid of my Eclipse.
