Looking at a 2005 S.

Hey guys. Just signed up and could use some help. I looking at a 2005 S 6 speed. I'm just wondering if there's anything that needs to be looked for our paid close attention to? What are the maintenance costs like on these cars? I've never had a Mini or any BMW product.

I live just outside Chattanooga, TN and drove up to Nashville yesterday to look at the car. It's the metallic BRG with grey cloth, xenon headlights, auto climate control, sunroof, DSC, and Harmon Kardon stereo. It seems to be well maintained with 79,500 miles on it and even has the JCW intake and brake kit.
