blown head gasket on 325

i was just looking through my news paper and noticed a 1995 325i for sale. i called the guy and he said it has a blown head gasket. its got 160K miles on it. hes asking $2000 US. i might go take a look at it tomorrow. anything i should be looking for or watching out for. is the price good for whats wrong with it, i would still try taking down the price. if it is just the head gasket, how hard is it to do on these cars.

ask 325isedan... he's taking his engine apart right now, to replace the head gasket himself.

It's a @#%(@(#$@(#$((+#$)(#(_)^^%^%^&&%^ of sh#$ to do, and u need a special tool for the cam shaft. If u take it to a shop it will cost u just as much as a engine swap. 2G's USD was not bad no wonder it went. Some mechanic or dude who had access to a shop prolly bought it. I heard it takes like 15hrs to tear down the engine just to get to it. There's someone on here selling his 92 325i for 3 or so g's. Check the for sale section!
