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.

Remember that goodies never increase the value of a car. If anything, they decrease it. Make a lowball offer, $22K, and see how they respond. You have nothing to lose.

If the car is well maintained and not abused, the car should last many more miles than that.

Pay a professional to inspect the car anyway (it's called PPI). Ask the pro to look for signs of accidents and abuse.

I’m at 53k now on my 235i and it’s been pretty solid minus a tpms issue and I had a hose clip break allowing the overflow reservoir coolant line to fall and rub a belt and ultimately spill out. But I mean I never even got to a low coolant warning point since I caught it immediately. I’ve been tuned and running e85 too

As a price reference, I just bought 2014 M235i/premium package, manual, with 5500 miles (not a misprint) CPO for $30K. If you take the CPO out that's $27.5K.

my car is 14 m235i and it has 72k miles on it. Still pull like a champ. The only major thing I had to replace was leaked gas tank at 48k miles but luckily I had it under warranty. If you can ask for full history record of the car I don't see why not. Hope you can get the ultimate ride that you're looking for

Same plans here! Lease buy is 31K end of December, which is a pretty good deal based on my research, (essentially all options and perf exhaust and LSD on it).

At only 90k, I would certainly hope so.
