247K miles? Your getting a good buy because the cars usefulness is pretty much over. If your ready to buy, have a BMW independent garage look it over for you before purchase to let you know what the good is and the bad. They would be the best to determine what would be expected soon to replace.

That's way too many miles for an '06 model anything! Unless this would be a second car and you're familiar with it already. HTH. -Jim

Good buy???, No, you should be saying Goodbye. I agree completely that 247,000 miles on a 2006 car is insane, that's more than 27,000 miles per year. Sounds like highway miles or taxi, ugh! IF YOU WERE GETTING THIS FOR A REALLY CHEAP PRICE, IT MIGHT STI LL NOT BE WORTH ALL THE REPAIRS AND HEADACHE.

Buy it, it sounds like a good deal. Make sure you have a mechanic look it over first.

That's more like 17,000 miles per year, high, but, in the acceptable range. Still, you had better be prepared for some rough waters in the maintenance and repair department. And, after 200,000 miles, cars can have a harsher ride as the suspension settles. I had an old car with over 200,000 miles. Although I replaced the shocks, springs and any other struts, the car rode like it was on a washboard. You're braver than I would be. I hope you got this car for a great price.

If I were you, I'd keep the car for another 35,000 to 40,000 miles and sell it just before it reaches the 200,000 miles mark. Yes, fix everything on the car to get another 40,000 miles and get your money's worth. By the time it reaches 200,000 miles, it will be pretty worn out. Besides, you're going to want a car with more updated technology then.
