Default good buy or nah?

brought a 2006 325I with 156,000 miles. .. was this a good idea? I dont know anything about the cars past maintenance history....it seems to drives smooth so far...im new to this community so I ask you all to go easy on me. What should have worked/done on the car right away being the mileage? Brought it for $4500

Seems like a decent deal, that's pretty high miles though. I'd start with changing out/checking fluids and checking the typical wear and tear items. Brake fluid, engine oil, filter, spark plugs, brakes, CV boots, coolant, diff fluid, power steering fluid, etc. I'd also be wary of aging cooling components -- hoses, water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing. AFAIK BMW does not recommend changing the trans fluid. Bimmerfest: BMW Forum, BMW News, BMW Research, BMW European Delivery, 335, M3 is a very popular BMW-specific forum so you might try posting there as well.
