Car looks nice in the photo. Make sure you get the vehicle service history. Where and when it was serviced. With 185,000 kms I would expect that many parts should have been replaced. Rad and water pump, suspension, brakes, a few times, sensors, belts and on and on. Take the car to a trusted BMW shop to give it a complete check. The car may drive nice but you can spend $$$$ fixing a lot of little things.
Good luck with the purchase. I have a 97 528i and love it.

remember even the car is price low the parts are a killer..the car is almost hitting the 200,000km so expect alot of replacement for expiring parts.Make sure they have complete service records and of course a carfax to see its history..
