I am no expert, but I don't think there is much difference between 01, 02, & 03 from a reliability perspective. The M54 makes good power and gets great mileage.

What does worry me is "BMW serviced." 25,000 KM between oil changes is too much. With my 530 at 20,000 KM the TBN was 1.6. (anything less than ~1 means the oil is used up)

The price sure is right for the 02
