N52 issue

Hi everyone, just would like to hear any issue that you might have encountered when you car started to go over 150000km, any parts that need to be fixed or replaced to bring the car performance to an average standard (can't expect to bring it back as to the first few new born years for sure)? Or any issue that gave you a real headache?

And anyone has his car with more than 150000km? If so, what are your beloved vehicle's record in term of mileage please?

Have not quite hit that point yet (108,000), however so far have had to replace o2 sensor (bank 2, pre-cat) and it appears the valve cover gasket is leaking oil (common issue). Unsure of whether it's the gasket itself or if there's broken bolts

I'm at around 108000 as well, so far it's just been the usual maintenance thankfully, should probably flush transmission fluid if you haven't. My valve cover gasket is leaking oil as well

Ic. Yes, the gasket issue has been a very common issue I assume.
And there is an issue with its valve too due to the poor design, a revised design for the valve has been used since Nov 2008 if I am not wrong.
Just curious though, what would you do with the leaking of oil? Have you fixed it? Or leave it?
Am thinking if that is ok to leave it.....

Am thinking to get a 125000km driven coupe, but worrying if it is wise to spend $33000 on that or should I spend an extra $10000 to get a less driven one....any idea?
