my buddys beamer has 258,000 k and it doesnt burn any oil yet and i dont think it will need a rebuild for another 50,000k at least. just keep up on the oil changes
I remember someone had a 325 with 500,000 kilometers and the engine was still runing o.k.
i saw a bimmer once in a forum, he'd just hit 500,000 MILES on it. it was an e30 though, so i'd say you could get supposedly more out of it. but you'd have lots and lots of maintenance. 170k isnt too bad for a BMW though, i'd go for it.
i have 496,000km on my 325 engine getting week 6 cyl i think it needs rings
