Should I buy this 528i?

I've found a local listing for a 528i with 167k miles on it. year is unknown but I would say its pre-facelift. It has updated headlights and taillights though. The guy is asking $2000 because "the drivers side window quit working" and the "engine overheats". I've done some research and it looks to me like I could spend about $1500 on parts, do the work myself, and sell the car for around 4500 and come out on top. My concern is that if the engine isnt overheating because of the coolant system (which is what i was going to overhaul), or if the overheating has caused damage to the engine. What do yall think?

here is the listing. I call dibs on it haha -
