Long term durability of 335d

I am in the market to purchase a 335d right now. I've located the car I want, but before pulling the trigger, I would like to gather some opinions on the long term durability of the 335d. I am hoping to run this car to at least 200k miles.

Reading about valvetrain carbon deposits, a flawed EGR/PCV design and multiple head replacements over here has me slightly concerned. Does anyone here have a high mileage 335d that has managed to avoid these issues, or should I resort to the thinking that these are issues I will eventually have to deal with during ownership?
