If you like this particular one then take it to BM Autowerks, Worx or Southern BM and get a Pre Purchase Inspection done. They all know the common faults/issues with these cars.

Some common faults are Subframe cracks, Vanos issues, cooling issues etc.
Being close to 80k kms, its probably due for an Inspection II service if its not done yet. If u r handy with tools then u can save some coin as lots of the jobs are DIY.

Thanks guys for the advice.. It's so hard to find a manual, only came across one now, don't like the colour though.
