I recently purchased a used 320si with only 13.000 km on.

So far no problems...all is good!

I am worried however, because I have seen 2 cases of problematic engines (one had a "component failure" and the other a problematic piston rod) and heard of another one.

Now I read an "intermittent starting problem", but I don't have any issues thus far.

What should I do in order to avoid any types of these issues and be safe, regarding servicing?

I have read something about a "valve service". When should this be done (after how many kilometers) and how should I describe it to my dealer.

Should I worry that this will happed to me also?
