Need opinions on this E30 before I buy it


1985 318i sedan
Silver ext - fresh paint job
Blue int - drivers seat has a few rips
116k original miles
Just had a major service 3k miles ago
Automatic (see below)

Bad: Needs a new transmission or a rebuild. I found a rebuild kit on eBay for $199 plus shipping and I would have a local shop rebuild it. Also says it has a slight rough idle when starting cold but goes away after a short amount of time.

He only had one pic of the car and hasn't been home to send me any more pics. Says there is 1 small surface rust near the sunroof smaller than the size of a dime and barely noticeable. I'll basically be taking the money with me the first time I see it.

He was asking $750 but I have talked him down to $550. Do you guys think it's worth it? I'd probably end up slamming the dog p!ss out of it and standing it. Give me your opinions!
