Some running gear/suspension components may need changing at that mileage but nothing a person with your skills wouldn't be able to handle.

When you're done, you'll have a great performing ride at very low total cost.

Yeah, the previous owners definitely took good care of it. I got plenty of service records with the car as well, indicating that quite a few suspension components have already been replaced, along with most of the cooling system. There are tons of dealer records on the Carfax as well, since this X5 was serviced at BMW dealers until 2011 and then at an independent shop (which is where I bought this X5 from). After I do the chain guides the engine should be bulletproof for the next 100,000 miles at least.
