Might buy an e36 325i....opinions

Hey guys. I'm new here and because this is one of the few canadian bimmer forums I came upon by, I'd just like your opinions on this car I might buy. The ad listing is http://vancouver.craigslist.org/car/463052730.html . It seems like a clean ride and I have seen it in person once. The only fishy thing is the km's on it, pretty low. However, I can determine if thats true or not by inspection later. My question is if the cars description holds true and it is in fact only 95km, local, no accidents, is it worth $9000? It KBB price is only $5500, so im not too sure. Just to let you know I'm from Vancouver, knowing most people here are from Ontario. Also, in general, how reliable are e36's for students if well taken care of? Thanks guys, and my bad if its posted in the wrong area.

i'm a student and i have a 97 328. as long as you take care of it it is a very reliable car. By that i mean premium fuel, regular oil changes and don't beat on it like crazy everytime you drive it. Even though i do know alot of people who only drive their bmw to beat on it and they hold up pretty well. 9000 for only 93kms sounds to good to be true and very rare

Ya that's what i was thinking too. If I get a hold of his VIN # can I find out to see if maybe the car's km's were rolled back or something. I know its not rebuilt for sure because I know the guy. He's my parents' mechanics son, so he is somewhat trustworthy. Is there anyway to find out if the km's are true? and how about doing so? Thanks guys and quick response!
