I'm looking at a used 2007 525i with 75000 miles. Does anyone know if these have any particular problem areas to watch out for? I'm not afraid of iDrive, etc. but am interested if there are any "final drive" type problems that this series may suffer from.

Thanks for any input.

My 2004 525i has 105k and has been fairly flawless. Only issue of concern was a rear wheel bearing just before warranty expired at 100k. For me, iDrive was very intuitive. I write software for a living, but once you get through the menus it's not really a lot to traverse.
The forum I mostly go to is bimmerfest.com. Like here, you'll see lots of issues, but doesn't mean they'll all happen to your e60.
I change my own bulbs and plugs with the help of uTube videos. Other than that regular maintenance is done by private wrenches.

HTH,
Jer
