Looking for advice: 535I 2014

Hi, I found a 535i 2014. The car have 70K on it, asking price is 18K
I basically want a 2014-2016 White 335I with Black interior with M line and few upgrades if possible (premium package, cold weather package, driver assistance package)
All this together looks hard to find.

The question is, does 70K on it feel alot for a BMW ?. Base on your experience, what does start to break after 70K ? My current car have 186k on it and after 150K everything started to fall apart, I don't want to go threw that again. What do you think ?
Thanks for the support, here is a picture of the car. Condition is 10/10

I bought my 535i 2011 xdrive with 84k on it, only had to replace valve cover gasker, oil filter housing gasket, serpentine belt, belt tensioner, oil cooler gasket figured I'd do that while I did the oil filter housing gasket. My front cv boots were torn had to replace both of those and replaced hub wheel bearing assembly while i was there. The boot is general maintenance if caught early enough you can just replace that. I'm currently at 104k miles 2.5 years ownership. If you can DIY all these repairs and other typical failure points such as water pump then go ahead. I dunno your spending limit but its not a bad deal with all the packages. If any questions feel free to ask. There are diy guides out there to fix the majority.

This is very good advice, not sure if the current owner have done it. He said he only put 10k on it in the last 2 years. He does not run it in the winter. Will see. Thank you for the advice.

Sounds like a good deal to me. Reminds me a lot of mine.

I bought mine with 70k from a local dealer and it now has 106k in it. I've done brake pads, coils, plugs, serpentine belt and pulleys, transmission fluid/pan, differential fluid, water pump, thermostat, "Mickey mouse" flange coolant hose, and valve cover gasket.

Almost all of the above was done preventatively since the time I bought it two years ago. The only thing that had an actual issue was the leaking valve cover gasket. And at some point I need to replace the cracked rear differential mount.

I was wondering what are the maintenance in the Owner Manual from 70-120k. ?
Thanks for all the advice guys, I have to take a 300miles train go go see it tomorrow.

The owner told me he only had replace the valve cover gasket in the last 10k.

Unless you already have one, I would buy inexpensive OBD2 scanner and pull codes from the car before you buy the car. I use Bluedriver and for $99 it is worthwhile investment and something I think everyone who wants to keep a car in a long run should have.

https://www.bluedriver.com/products/...iver-scan-tool and now there is $10 off on Amazon so only $89.99

Alright guys, I bough my first BMW. I pay for a inspection before and the only thing they found was a bushing in the front tie rod that show some wear and tear. Been told it's normal and they all do that. The mechanical said no rush to do it but eventually if your car start to shake on the highway, you need to change it.

Otherwise this car is super clean and I'm very happy with the purchase. Thanks for everyone who did helping me building confidence in buying this machine.
