2004 BMW 325xi Q&A

2004 BMW 325xi Question: About to purchase

I'm looking at buying a 2004 325xi with 45,000 miles on it. I know the mileage is super low and I'm happy about that but concerned about future issues since I have reason to believe the car was not driven for long periods of time. What should I be looking for?? I owned an 02 330xi and have a good idea of what the costs are to fix BMW's and I know repairs can be quite expensive so am trying to avoid all that. Thanks -
