I have an 09 328i coupe with the N51 engine. 92k miles. No Catastropic issues. Mainly electronic problems involving the sunroof, iDrive has gotten a bit slower. Other than that I've had my vanos solenoids flushed and refilled at around 89k. Brakes/rotors from my CPO last year, 5 oil changes, and just recently another front brake/rotor job after my warranty expired.

Still have to get new spark plugs and I want to replace the waterpump and thermostat as preventative maintanance. Other than that the car has been very reliable and treating me as a college student well.

for n52 engines some of the common problems are: valve cover gasket, oil plan gasket, oil filter housing gasket, serpentine belt tensioner. other things to check is the history for recalls (like the battery cable to fuse box connections), spark plugs being changed, break fluid flushes, age of battery, condition of suspension and steering items like dampers and control arms.
