Advise on purchase -- 2004 330XI ~68,000 Miles

Hello everyone, I am considering making a switch from my 1999 328is to a 2004 330XI to deal with the horrible winters up here in Minnesota after moving from Atlanta. I look to you for your opinions on a listing and what I should watch out for when I go take a look at the car. Thanks!

A good move going from 328SI to 330XI!

Look for broken rear springs.
Check rubber boots on driveshafts for tears and leaks, front and back.
Get the car scanned for fault codes.

Good luck!

for $12.5k, I think it's a bit much. I mean it has low mileage but still, try and work them down a bit.
Other than that car basically looks loaded minus the xenon headlights and nav.
