E36 common problems

I have a friend that has a mid 90's 325Is/auto it has over 200k and he is having problems with it running like crap. I have not seen the car but from what I understand it has been thru many owners and minimal maintenance. It's not his primary car and he got it cheap but wants to make it more reliable.

I've told him about the typically problems with our cars and not sure how well they compare. This weekend he is replacing the VCG (spark plug holes filled with oil) and chasing down vacuum leaks seems he has a lot of them cracked boots, hoses etc...

I'm not too familar with them and don't really want to join another forum but what are some things I should suggest?

Thanks in advance!
