Ccv hoses. Not sure how much but $500+ job for shop and at least few hundred in parts for diy.
Random other fixes $1000

Total everything and see if you can afford.
Aside from the subframe kit, the rest are easily DIY. No reason to dish out that insane amount of money, for simple jobs. CCV is only ~$150 and a 2-3 hour job. You are giving this kid an unrealistic outlook. Especially considering he said his dad is an engineer/bimmer fanatic. So in all likelihood will be doing the jobs at home.
