Looking at a 328i

I am looking at buying a used 2000-2003 328i, I have found several pretty nice cars in my area and the prices are not that bad either so it piqued my interest. What I am concerned about is the mileage, most of the cars have just over 100k on the odometer. Are there any known issues, major or otherwise, with that particular model. Every car has something, I just want to know what to look out for if I decide to buy my first import. Also I am a big guy, about 6'4 and a pretty well built 380 pounds, will I be able to drive one comfortably? I really want to find one locally that I can take for a spin to check it out, but as there is no BMW dealer around here, they are pretty few and far between. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Ok I need to rephrase some of that its not nescessarily a 328i, I found a few 330's and a bunch of 325's whats the difference?

It depends on the actual car itself. The idea of the 325i being a 3 series with a 2.5 liter engine has loosened up. A 328i may have a 2.5 engine for example. The 128i and the 135i are both 1 series cars with a 3.0 liter engine, the 135i is a turbo.
