drive it look at it and if you like it make him an offer.
Sorry but your car probably isn't up to most of our standards. There's a lot that needs to be done to these cars after 80K if you want it to perform like a BMW should. Also that's not 1K-2K in parts/labor, that is parts only. If you can't DIY these cars then you probably can't afford it.
