2005 320d - Worth it? *including pics*

Hi guys

A few days ago I stumbled upon a nice looking 320d on the secondhand site of a Ford dealer; here are the specs:
- 163BHP (6-speed manual)
- leather interior
- iDrive professional
- parkingsensors
- & ofcourse the basics

The dealership is currently selling this car with around 200.000km (about 125.000 miles) for 8.899 (around $11.600).
My question is: is the car worth it? (considering known issues with that model, miles, age, price, ...)

Thanks in advance!

That is a popular engine in Belgium and 200,000 km is OK as long as it has a full service history. Can you take it to BMW and have them look at it in order to see if there are issues?

Thanks! I'm currently doing my exams so I haven't had the chance to contact them yet (unfortunately); however the car is being sold by a big Ford dealership (including warranty, apparently), so I'm pretty sure they did a thorough check on the car; unless there are some things that really should be checked by a BMW dealer?

Personally, I wouldn't touch a car with high kms like that as you do not know its history... It may seem like a bargain... but I would be very careful and be sure to take it to an indy to have it checked over from top to bottom before committing.
