Default N62 and N63 - 03-09-2021, 04:01 PM

My friend is looking for a X5 with the third row seating and wanting to be under 100k miles.

I have some good experience and am acquainted with several S engines and the N52 and N55. I do all the maintenance and the majority of the repairs on my cars. The V8 models are popping up in the desired price range....but I'm fearful of the V8, especially the N63 (I just replaced the valve cover gaskets and all of the oil and cooling lines in the "hot V"). I would like to think that N62 powered X5 would be reliable engine, am I wrong?
Would anyone buy a used N62 as their only vehicle and not able to do the mechanical repairs themself?
