Is this a good buy 530i

Hey guys love my e28 but this is my first e34. It's a 1995 530i. Pretty decent condition. I give a 7/10 on the body and 7.5/10. On the interior. It's color coded as dove gray. I am replacing the clutch this week and it has some sort of vacuum leak causing rough idle. Someone please show me how to post pics. I paid 1600 and the clutch is costing me 350 Sachs. What do you guys think. 240000 on the body 50 on the motor.

Personally wouldn't pick something up with so few miles on the motor. Anything could happen and I would check EVERYTHING when looking for the misfire issue. Good luck. I still want 530 manual car lol.

rough idle is likely tb gaskets, crank case vent plate at back of intake, or intake gaskets themselves. Common and easy to fix.
