Seeking advice on an 03 purchase.

Hey everyone. Long time lurker and since I'm on the fringe of purchasing an M I'm looking for advice if I should pull the trigger on the deal.

It's a 2003 M3 6 Speed w/ Cold weather Package & sunroof . 19" Alloys. Titanium Silver. 79k Miles.

Buying Price is at $16,000.

Background: Friend is the 2nd owner of the car that was purchased through a BMW certified pre-owned dealership in 2005. Original point of purchase the car had 32,000 miles on it. Now it has 79k miles. He's selling the vehicle because a baby is on the way and is looking for an SUV.

Some of the things that I have noted after lurking so long:

Inspection I was done already and Inspection II was done at 60,000 miles.

Water pump was replaced at 50k miles due to failure.

All other recalls were fixed.

Some things that needs fixing:
Interior rear roof cloth is loose (can I glue it in place)
Rear driver taillight doesn't work (connector is loose I believe)
SES light is on (he says this may be due to an O2 Sensor near the cat converter)
Leather is wearing out
Very small barely noticeable dings on the bumper

I test drove the car several times and it seems perfect. Engine and transmission were very smooth and the power is definitely noticeable.

I know I will get flamed for not providing pictures but I am 200 miles away from the car right now. Will post pictures once I get the chance.
