My Ride: 2000 BMW 3XXi ZSP
Here are my primary concerns with a bimmer with 140,000 miles... Speaking strictly from experience with my 300,000 plus bimmer. The suspension will need a definite over-haul to include control arms, CAB's, ball joints, shocks, springs, dampers, struts, rear trailing arms and bushings, motor mounts, transmission mounts, O2 sensors, guibo, center drive-line support are all things that need a hard look after 100,000 miles. Hopefully the transmission and differential fluids have been changed at 140,000 as well. You already know you'll have to refresh the cooling system if that hasn't been done. Just my two and a half cents worth...
