Does anyone know this car/seller?

I am trying to help my close friend who is not very car savvy find a good, reliable car, and I found this E46 (http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehi...AdIdZ468281479) on Kijiji. Based on what I've seen, price seems a little too good to be true if the condition really is as described. I haven't gone to look at the car yet, but the seller said that he is a member of this forum and others, so I figured there would be a good chance someone might know a thing or two about this car.

My main warning signs are the price and the fact that it doesn't seem to be listed for sale on here. I would figure, when someone is a member of a car community and they want to dump a shady car, they will not post it on the forum so that they don't hurt their rep.

Anyway, good news or bad, I'm just hoping someone would know something about it before we go look at it. My friend currently has a car with 350k on it that is basically falling apart, so a key motivator is getting a car that won't need lots of work and will run well with regular maintenance. I really don't want him to end up with a problem car.
