I'd say you probably got a fair deal if the rest of the car is pristine. If not you paid too much.

Pre-facelift E46 328 w/ blown headgasket for $3k? What a bargain! What a bargain for me!

It's not pristine but I love it, I wasn't expecting it to cost as much as it did to fix it. I needed to buy a new head and a timesert kit. But it ran in the end, so it's better than it still not running. It was actually 2.5k that was my bad, but still an insane amount
