Well I don't know weather to congratulate you or "PRAY" for you. To buy a 7 series with worn down pads, bolts missing an chipped water pump is enough for me to "RUN" as fast as I can in the opposite direction. As for oil leaking....well... maybe you could have let that slide . Your next worries would be that it's a 02, which was the 1st year they switch over to the E65, E66 body style. With that being said it is important to get that car with "ZERO" issues at time of purchase. Its apparent the previous owner(s) did NOT take good care of it based on what you said. If I were you I would be checking, actually replacing valve cover gaskets, Timing case gaskets, CCV, plugs, spark plug tubes, bushings, trans flush, check battery sense your already messing with the alternator, oil an all filters. Then go from there. There is tons of info on here which I see you are aware of. I wish you the best. Welcome to the fest.
