The only thing you need to look at is your bank balance. ANY 8-series you buy is going to need parts replaced. If you can't wrench it yourself, be prepared for very high mechanic bills.
I paid $8k for my '97 850Ci; a serious steal, and although I've already done quite a bit of work to her, she still needs more repair/replacements (the little things really add up) to get her where I want her.

They can be great cars, but it depends on how you want to use it. They're great for long highway cruising, not so much for racing light to light.
