That ad was posted 10 months ago.. but there’s another LeMans (130k @$10.9k) and Estroil (183k @$6.5k) for sale nearby that might also be worth considering. As others mentioned, find out about maintenance... I just cracked 200k miles on my daily driver 4.8iS this week and I’ve been wondering if 300k is possible. It’s been reliable and a joy to drive, and [parts]costs have been relatively reasonable.. but I’ve seen and heard other owners’ horror stories too.. Shop wisely. Easier said than done when looking for a 4.8iS, but it’s worth it. I’ve owned several, and the best running examples were not always the priciest or the cleanest.
Current BMWs:
2002 E53 4.6iS (TiAg) (stock)
2004 E46 330i ZHP (Imola/Natural) (stock)
2004 E53 4.8iS (TiAg)(daily) (modded for comfort)
2004 E53 4.8iS (Imola Red) (modded for the camera)
2005 E46 330i ZHP (TiAg/Alcantara) (stock)
2005 E53 4.8iS (TiAg) (modded for fun)
2006 E46 M3 (Mystic Blue) (stock)
2006 E53 4.8iS (Black Sapphire) (stock)
and a few newer (and uglier) models parked outside...

Past BMWs:
Gone but not forgotten...
