Buying Immaculate e36 316 compact ( nearly ! )


I went to look at buying a e36 1999 compact today, it was immaculate with 113000 miles on the clock , took the car for a test drive, 100% perfect was just about to purchase the car and check the oil filler cap and there was milky cream slime underneath and also checked the oil dipstick and the same, the was a milky slime above where the engine oil was.

I have searched around and it appears that sometimes a milky foam appears if the car is stop started often or has stood still for a long time.

Has anyone got a sure fire way to test it out or any advice on how to proceed.

Thanks in advance!!
