Mein Auto: rescued bmw's
the stickies at the top of the forum cover a lot of what you should be looking for in a used bmw, but since it's cheap enogh and not running, you already know it has 'issues'...

with that being said, a stomp test is for pre-96my vehicles (non obd2) for the north american market. key on, engine off, depress the accelerator to the flooor 5x very quickly and count the flashes from the check engine light. there are a series of flashes that correspond to a 4 digit code.
