Question Pointers for e30 325i purchase

Hey everyone ,

Newbie here.

I recently went to a meet in Montreal and fell in love with a local e30 325i (I believe it was an 325is but not familiar with the model variants).

So I've set out to purchase one for myself, on a limited up front budget.

Since I've never purchased a car older than 10-15 years, much less a BMW, I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers about what to look for when seeking out a car such as specific questions about various maintenance that should have been done on the car or parts that definitely need to be changed and the likes.

I'm used to volkswagens, i.e. timing belts, calipers and fen sensors... and rust, definitely rust. Switching to an older BMW means I just need to know a bit about model specific things.

I hope you guys out there know where I'm going with this. I'm hoping I can find a decent one during the course of the summer to have a project to work on next winter.
