+1 avoid this car. Definitely something wrong with the car if the seller can't be bothered to replace the burnt out lights. In some cases, the bulb fixtures would melt/short (BMW even had a recall in the USA for this). Replacing the fixtures at the dealer would likely be $300+
Engine swap also sounds fishy.
You can get a 2002-04 E46 between $5-8K these days with better histories that this car (at least in Ontario).
Here's his info, which you may already have.
