Honestly, buying any car that old with that many miles will have more issues than you can speculate about. The fact that this one has the known issues discussed (subframe, ccv, cooling) just adds to the mix. Honestly, I'm not sure Id recommend an older BMW for anyone that doesn't plan to get their hands dirty... otherwise its just incredibly expensive! That being said, at that age Id spend 4000 on the car, but plan to spend another 2k relatively quickly getting it into a good reliable state.
