Honestly, if you're looking for an older mileage car due to financial reasons than I would suggest NOT to get a 70,000 mile one. Chances are you will pay significantly more money up front for the "lower" mileage bimmer and still need to do around $5,000 worth of replacement/maintenance work (if you take it to the dealership) between approx 80k and 100k.

At least that is my experience. I do my own work (which would probably scare the dealer earlier in the thread, since I don't have a documented history of being raped by BMW services) so I was able to keep my own costs down to around $2k over the past year.
I wouldn't consider 70K + the mileage that you need to be scared of. I bought my '97 M3 with 165k and I've put over 10k on it in the last year and a half and I haven't had to do a single mechanical piece of work except an oil pan gasket.

I bought my '07 335i a little over a month ago with 82k. I was fine with the "higher" mileage because of the price (it was good with all of the options I have) and it was under CPO for the last 3 weeks I owned it. The previous owner got all of their maintenance done at a BMW dealer. I have a 6MT and even the clutch is fine.

You can get good deals on early 335s with 70-80k and I think that people should definitely hop on those prices as long as they're careful and look at the service records and thoroughly inspect the car before you buy it.

EDIT: This all being said, look for cars that are running out of a CPO if you're looking for a budget buy. Most likely the work has been taken care of up to that point and you shouldn't inherit a bunch of problems

i'm not saying that my experience with the 335i is going to be flawless but i took all of the steps of checking everything out so that any issues that i come across are simply normal issues an that all of the maintenance has been done up until this point.

do you really think the e36 engine would be that much more reliable at 170k+ than a sub-100k N54? This is a legitimate question. I understand that boosted cars are by nature more unreliable
