High mileage

Hey guys I was wondering what your thoughts and opinions are on a high mileage m235i it's a 2015 with around 71k miles it's got a good amount of goodies as in exhaust system, limited slip (factory) ,some Dinan lowering springs carbon fiber goodies they're asking 25k and the car has been serviced and taken care of throughout its life as far as I can tell from what I could find in my research.
Any help personal experience greatly appreciated

My 2014 228i has almost 77K miles on it. As long as you take care of it I don't see why anyone wouldn't buy one with higher miles.

My 2012 X3 is approaching 90K, runs like new but I do maintain it regularly at a garage that specializes in Eureopean cars. I am friends with the owner and he said there are many more miles left in it

My m235i only has 4,000 miles and I'm super paranoid for the future when my warranty ends. Yet, from what I've been told the n55 engine is bullet proof. I've also heard that it is a smart thing to do maintenance before the car tells you (according to a youtuber).

That's kind of a lot of money for a 15' with 70k imo. My 16' has 28k and has been bulletproof for the most part. I plan on buying out my lease which is up 3/19 for 29k. At that point it will have around 33-35k miles and still be under warranty.

Just a quick search on Autotrader showed at least 20 M235's (Verts, Coupes, RWD, xDrive) under 50k miles almost all priced 24-26k.

If you go for it, talk them down a few grand. If it's a dealer trade in then I bet they didn't pay more than 20k for it.

Of course have a pre-delivery inspection done and check the car fax.
