Drive the car and look it over very carefully. Evaluate all the major systems if you can: electrical, brakes, engine, trans, clutch, suspension, steering, cooling system, body integrity, heating and air cond, etc. It's not a bad price if you like it, but expect to spend some money on repairs. E28's are not very difficult to work on, but find one worth keeping if you want to be a happy owner.
Don't be gormless; get some gorm!
