My Ride: bmw 318 ci
Oil sensor

Hi I'm currently negotiating on purchasing a BMW 318 ci on a y reg with 86k on the clocks, but the seller told me it's due a service(oil) in 5000 miles and may need a oil sensor as these get dirty over time is this the case or should I be worried about this car cheers.

Oil level sensor is common, the part is 125 so I passed on It for now and just manually check my oil.

I'd have a mechanic inspect and see what's what. Aside from the basics common probs are the entire cooling system (340 in parts), control arms and bushings, rtabs, and more!
