318i New to me

A quick list of things that need attention in my new family member - some so common I should have guessed some specific to errors by PO's. It has 350K Kms or 217K miles.
Should have Known:
Water pump; Fan Clutch; Timing Belt; Lots of Blown Globes; Front Suspension Bushes. A/C Regas.
Oh Look What I found:
Rear Wheel Bearing; A/C Pulley Bearing; Cracked Sump; Broken Exhaust; Main Bearing Growl (over 3500rpm); Oxide on Lamp Holders; Split Boot Base of Gear Lever (manual);Front Seat Rails Rusted and Jamed; No Signal to Radio From Aerial. Gearbox Drain Plug Overtightened (and Now Damaged Trying to Remove it).

That will teach me to have a 'thing' about old BMW's
Good - Fast - Cheap: Pick any two.
E23 735i; E32 735iL (X 2 - 1 Alpine White and 1 Glacier Blue); E34 535i; E38 735iL; R50 Cooper; R55 Cooper Clubman.
E21 318i; E30 318i; E32 735iL; E34 535i; E38 730iL; E53 4.4i
