Looking at a used X6

I maybe trading my '08 328i Coupe for an '08 X6 35i with only 69500 miles.
The one I'm considering has almost every option.

Is there anything I should be looking for that could tell of a problem?
I know of the HPFP problem and the waste gate issue. How does one check for the waste gate rattle?

Thanks and have a happy Memorial Day weekend.

Did you do the trade? I have a 2008 x5 4.8L and I went to see a 2008 x6 35i similar miles 104k we put the X6 on the lift and it had valve cover gasket leaks and oil filter housing leak (very common) and preety much was a mess Needed brake pads all around and thenback up camera didn't work . Also the RPMS needle gauge didn't move.. I backed out of it but I'm second thinking it . My X5 has no visible oil leaks but the valve stem seals are starting to go out also my cooling system needs a refresher other then that cars great . It was going to be a straight trade let me know what you think .
